“Many people think of influencers as just pretty faces who take nice pictures, but they don’t realize influencer marketing is a multibillion-dollar business and that the Social Media Millionaires club is real.”
–Brittany Hennessy, Senior Director of Influencer Strategy & Talent Partnerships at Hearst
Ms. Hennessy goes on to say, in a recent Business Insider article, that influencers can be paid anywhere from $250 to $30,000 per post (depending on their reach and impact), and that she expects the influencer industry to range between $5 to $10 billion by 2020.
