Social Influencers Infographic

Recently, the editors at MBA in Marketing Degree Guide decided to find out who and what are the biggest social influencers in the digital space today. They embarked on a research expedition that uncovered some interesting information.

The research began by probing who consumers trust when it comes to their purchasing decisions.

  • 54 % of consumers report a greater amount of influence coming from communities of smaller size. So blogs with small but loyal followings can deliver high-percentage results in consumer influence.
  • 31% of Internet purchases are influenced by blogs, ranking blogs third in influence behind only retail (56%) and brand sites (34%) in influence.
  • While bloggers and social media influencers are a premier source of influence, most digital marketers devote few resources to incorporating key influencers into their digital efforts.


So what can you do to become a bigger social infuencer? Check out the infographic below for some tremendously helpful tips.
