Social Media Influencer Marketing (Online)
Many Youtube, Instagram or Twitter users now have bigger audiences than popular TV shows or print newspapers.

These are the social media influencers, and for clever marketers, they provide a unique opportunity to reach targeted and receptive groups of potential customers.
