Social media influencers tend to be independent and express their own point of view. Even so, their activity has considerable value for commercial purposes. It’s common knowledge in the whole world that one of the most effective and modern ways of marketing is celebrity endorsements.
Businessmen, especially the successful ones, understand the value of social media as a tool that can be used to influence and demonstrate their services and products to celebrities.
