Influencer Marketing

Teaming up with popular online personalities to showcase your brand can really turn heads. It taps into their audience, adding credibility and buzz around what you're selling. Just choose wisely; not every influencer’s vibe will match your brand, and the cost can vary big time. Plus, tracking the real impact on sales gets tricky.
