What exactly is a micro influencer? They are people on social media channels who have a strong following but don’t have a celebrity status.
While there is no exact threshold, micro influencers typically have anywhere between 1,000 and 90,000 followers. Once we start to reach the hundreds of thousands of followers line, we are entering macro influencer territory. And anything higher than a macro influencer is considered to be a celebrity.

They have profiles on multiple platforms and update them on a daily basis.While this is definitely necessary for survival, it’s not quite enough.Companies that want to take their social media strategies to the next level also pay for advertisements.Facebook alone has more than six million advertisers on its platform. In september 2017 , Instagram hit two million monthly paid advertisers.That’s because it’s become very easy to set up ads to target a specific demographic. It’s hard for businesses to turn down this type of precision in targeting.
