Question & Answer

Is influencer marketing more applicable for just the younger generations?

Given that 89.5% of Singaporeans are on social media across platforms, there’s certainty that influencer marketing can reach a wide spectrum of audience groups. 
Here’s some platform statistics:

  • Instagram and Facebook: 50% of the audience are 35 years old and above, albeit the dominant age group is between 25-34 years old (Source: Kepios Analysis, 2022)
  • YouTube: Ad-reach in Singapore is 85.8%
  • TikTok: 81% are 32 years and below (Source: Statista Research Department, July 2023)

Does such long-term influencer-brand relationships work better for any specific industries or types of products? We see a lot are skincare products.

The key principle is to build a community of influencers with strong brand affinity, who would deliver the best results for you. One global CPG brand that we’ve worked with across various sectors has seen their cost-per-reach improved by 58%, because of their long-term relationship with influencers. Similarly, we have observed the same improvement for the 18 sectors we’ve worked with thus far.
