How is Influencer Marketing Superior to Digital Ads?

Digital ads rely (mostly) on a media outlet promoting one’s services. It’s (almost) always a cash-driven transaction and widespread across the net for decades. Influencers, on the other hand, tend to promote brands that they are willing to connect to and bet their name on them. Influencer marketing is not a new trend, just as digital ads weren’t anything groundbreaking (given their predecessor the print ads, billboards and other forms of offline banners). Brands have been utilizing influencers and industry leaders in order to promote their products and services for quite some time - probably longer than the ads’ existence. One practical example is Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract with a popular brand. In 2016 alone, he has generated $500M in value for Nike.

DEALING WITH DIVORCE: 4 TIMES IT’S EXCUSABLE TO LEAVE

Dealing with divorce comes in all shapes and sizes, but unfortunately it’s usually the worst ones – well, sometimes that is.

Still, I figured I’d ask the people whose opinion I trusted the most what they thought. My mother told me that Dad liked it, but she wasn’t crazy. “There’s no good female characters,” she said. But countless people, my father included, told me to give it a try. So I did.
