The Singapore market is an interesting space for marketers and advertisers on social media because of a few reasons.
Businesses like Google and Facebook rely on complex algorithms to deliver the best ads to the right person. Google and Facebook want you to succeed with advertising, as you will spend more when you make more money through their channels.
Some of the uses of AI can be seen through ad optimizations and customized chatbots that understand the user.
Influencers have been the biggest drivers of sales in the year when it comes to social media. Top influencers like Kylie Jenner have built empires just by being influencers. With the demand for influencers sky-high, many of their costs have gone up and is out of the realm of affordability for many mid-level brands.
For this reason, the trend of micro-influencers has shot up. Micro-influencers are individuals who have a follower count that is lesser than a million. It can range from 100,000 to 1,000,000.
These influencers generally have a lesser reach but cost way less compared to their peers. Micro-influencers also are considered to have a better connection with their audience which is a sure fire way to a good ROI.
The use of micro-influencer is sure to go up and this is a trend that you can latch on to, to market your products in Singapore.
