Leveraging the Power of Micro-Influencers
Even after the impact of micro-influencers has been proven over and over again, in the present year the micro-influencer remains one of the most underrated means of digital marketing in Malaysia. With the immense potential of these brand ambassadors, it is high time for Malaysian companies and digital marketing gurus alike to spend time, budget and effort into developing content that harnesses the power of influencers, specifically those on Instagram and YouTube. As Malaysians move into a realm of greater brand consciousness, influencer marketing will prove to be one of the most effective means of developing brand identity. Digital marketing experts know however, that micro-influencing is not an instant formula – it takes specific, focused efforts to get the right influencer to market one’s business.

One of the fastest rising stars in the digital marketing world, it’s safe to say that live video will rule the roost for a long time to come.
As newer technologies emerge and digital marketing prospects get savvier, Malaysian companies have realized that leveraging the digital marketing tools of today is the only way into the future.
