What’s an influencer? Is it a social media star with millions of followers? Or maybe an opinionated writer/ blogger as influential as traditional media.

To be honest, the answer is slightly more complex. But we’ll get there…

First, we have to consider that the distinction between the so-called traditional media and social media is becoming blurry because the information sources are becoming interconnected and multidimensional in our rapidly evolving world.

And this is where the influencers play a role: they are ahead of their time and are able to communicate with their audiences in a new and improved way. It’s especially relevant they feel free to implement new strategies while being playful and creative.

Influencers: who are they, why are they important?
