Influencers’ engagement rates have sharply increased.

Out of the 100 respondents (influencers), more than a half (72%) have noticed that their engagement has sharply increased since lockdown. The study results showed special support, care and love of influencers' audience; The reason for this is that their audience have more time to spend on social media and scrolling their feeds. Also their Instagram audience is using this enforced home time to discover fresh, new creators who resonate with them. At this point, marketers and brand owners should not discard the opportunity to partner with an influencer.

This study results are important for brands and agencies to help measure the effectiveness of influencer actions and get a great return on investment. It can also be used to set a benchmark to determine success or failure of your influencer marketing campaign.
