How Influencers Generate Revenue

Influencer marking is an increasingly appealing option for marketers. Especially when you consider regulations like GDPR which continue to make outreach in traditional channels more challenging.

As more brands consider the option of influencer marketing, a few questions come to mind: What makes someone an influencer? How do the campaigns work? What strategies are most effective?
