Decoding The Role Of Creators In Marketing Strategies
Every time a user scrolls through the internet, they are exposed to a variety of content, tailored-made for them. Preferences and choices play a crucial role in the process, empowering them to create communities for support, advice and solidarity. At the focal point of such interest-based interactions are creators who know how to engage the audience.
Primarily, creators entertain and educate their followers, playing the role of influencers in their networks. Brands have every reason to love them — leading to a flourishing creator economy, especially in Indic language-first ecosystems.
Business of Influence
The creator economy consists of three key stakeholders: Brands, consumers and creators.
Creators hold the megaphone with easy access to potential customers. There is a trust-based resonance in these one-to-many relationships.
Brands tap into these to forge relevant connections to create powerful branded experiences that engage audiences and turn them into consumers.
It leads creators to become key allies for brands, one that must always have in their court. It could be the launch of a new product or an advocacy campaign with high stakes — brands can always rely on the powers of the creators to make things go in their favour.
With creators, brands can amplify the same message in different ways to different people, enabling beautiful execution and results.
The creator's role goes beyond sharing experiences, reviewing products, or suggesting their favourites. They bind together like-minded communities. Brands stand to benefit from it, especially if they are trying to launch a product or increase positive sentiments.
Creators are changing the marketing landscape. Moj is at the forefront of this evolution, facilitating brands in leveraging their reach and authenticity to achieve campaign goals. Most brands are moving with the flow, reshaping their brand strategies on the go.
Extending the Legacy
