COVID-19 And Social Media Go Hand-In-Hand
COVID-19 has forced people around the world to stay inside, and life as we know it has come to a grinding halt. People across the globe are scrambling to find ways to pass the time, and social media usage has skyrocketed since stay-at-home orders have been put in place.
Because of this, influencers and social media content creators have been tasked with finding new ways to interact with consumers that can distract them from the chaos around the world. Influencers depend on brand deals to survive, and with everyone at home and online, now is the perfect time for brands to work with influencers to share their products. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares some of our agency's best blog's posts for brand marketers on leveraging social media and social media influencers during COVID-19.
How To Use Influencers To Advertise During COVID-19
As daunting and isolating stay-at-home orders can feel, many celebrities, influencers, and businesses have resorted to social networking apps to stay connected with their community. With so much time in our hands and nothing to do but social distance and stay home, what more can you do but browse endlessly on the web?
With easy and accessible apps like Youtube, Zoom, Instagram live, Facebook, TikTok, and many more, social networking seems to be more accessible than ever, especially when we are mandated to stay in doors for weeks on end. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses how brands can use influencers to advertise affordably and effectively during COVID-19.
How Influencer Houses Can Keep Creating Content During COVID-19
A few weeks ago, when we all were first waking up around the country to our new roles of living in a horror movie or series, I had the opportunity to speak with Business Insider's Lindsay Dodgson regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the business of influencer marketing. Specifically, we had a chat on how influencer houses can keep producing content despite social distancing regulations.
The fact is, there is no reason why influencer houses can't keep on ticking along as they continue to produce TikTok and Instagram content. They just need to be savvier and safer. And in fact, it's really rules that could apply to everyone now, and in the future when COVID-19 restrictions come back again in play. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares our perspective on why influencer houses can keep creating content during COVID-19 (and your own friends and family staying together).
