Niche in terms of marketing refers to a segment of the market, solely dedicated to promoting one particular kind of product or service. When we talk about influencer marketing, a niche influencer is sometimes also referred to as a micro-influencer. The only difference is that they have relatively fewer followers. Big celebrities’ accounts are persuasive and most definitely create awareness among customers but there are other less exorbitant and powerful ways for a business to reach out to its potential customers and still achieve their goals. There are various influencer marketing agencies such as confluencr which help you figure out the right influencer for your niche. Following are some of the most trending ones in 2020:
