Influencers” are people who, due to their high number of contacts and followers in the large social networks such as Facebook and Instagram, are particularly suitable for advertising activities. With the enormously increased influence of digital networks, it has become increasingly interesting for companies to use such personalities specifically for marketing purposes. In contrast to conventional, more general advertising measures, the direct influence of the influencers, who probably owe their name to the book “Influence: Science and Practice” by the American Robert Cialdini, is used. Not surprising, considering that these internet stars sometimes have hundreds of thousands, sometimes even millions of followers and can therefore address more or less directly. By the way, anyone who has less than 100,000 followers is only considered a “micro-influencer”. No matter on which platform you look around, the topic of luxury watches is represented extensively. Below we show you some of the most influential influencers on Instagram when it comes to Rolex.
