Everything changes. Five years ago, you could easily market your products through ads and could make a nice amount of revenue. If your ads were featured on larger websites, you’d basically be set for some time. Unfortunately for some, that time has passed.
Instagram is one of the most famous real-time, visual-focused social networks. People use it to share their special moments with friends, follow their beloved celebrities, find content or simply pass the time. Could it actually be a place for an e-shop to meet its business goals for its products or services?

It's possible you've heard the buzz online, and decided to finally get out there and start with influencer marketing. With some time, tools and magic you've found the influencers in your niche.

Because to be honest, who knows what it even is, how long it will last and how it works.
