Influencer Marketing and Social Selling: Relevant Tools for Black Friday
In influencer marketing, brands cooperate with selected influencers who present discount codes, competitions, or raffles for the respective products in their posts and stories on their channels, so that their followers are informed and ultimately encouraged to make a purchase. The most relevant platforms for such a strategy are Instagram and Facebook. But TikTok is also becoming increasingly popular, especially with a younger target group.
In addition to content production for their own channels and influencer marketing, paid campaigns in the form of social ads also lend themselves to social media communication. Social ads are paid advertisements that appear in a targeted manner in the user’s history. This instrument is particularly suitable for advertising special deals with a wide reach and targeted to specific groups in order to ultimately generate potential sales without detours.
