However, a transversal figure that emerges from the Skeepers study concerns the two most important values ​​for brands and influencers: authenticity e transparency. Which are leading to giving more weight to micro and nano influencers, as well as user-generated recommendations for brands. Furthermore, the importance of environmental and social responsibility is growing.

Andrea Scotti, Country Manager of Skeepers Italia explains: “More and more companies are embracing micro and nano influencing strategies because they offer a more concrete and direct message to the user. The strength lies precisely in the bond between the user and the influencer: an equal relationship that makes the message conveyed, similar to a friend’s advice”.

Also Sabrina AgasucciAccount Executive for Skeepers, agrees: “Taking advantage of the possibility of having the micro and nano influencers as brand ambassadors is therefore an opportunity not to be missed, because unlike macro and VIPs, their style of life is much more similar to that of an “ordinary” person.
