And Instagram is right up there in the top social media platforms that Singaporeans love. If you’re considering or in the process of collaborating with influencers for your marketing campaigns, then you’ve come to the right place. Check out my list of must-follow Instagram influencers in Singapore.

Need more convincing as to how you should approach your influencer marketing strategy? First, you must dive deeper into 'who', 'what', and 'how':

  • Who is your target audience?
  • What is the message you're trying to communicate to them?
  • How are you communicating this message?

Your target audience

If you want to reach a specific demographic or market a specific type of product, then this is going to shape your influencer marketing efforts, particularly which influencers you should collaborate with. It's absolutely essential to narrow down the segment of the audience you want to reach.

“The best way is for brands to source out influencers who can be aligned to what the brand stands for and has their own personal branding and aesthetic, before building a long term relationship with them. With long term relationships, I am generally happy to provide more endorsements for the brand in my own voice, which would appear a lot more genuine to my audience as well.” - Vera Mao @kisses.vera

Your brand's message

Your brand is so much more than just a name. It is a concept that represents a story. Ninety-five percent of purchasing decisions are driven by some form of emotion. Consumers want to hear stories and your brand needs to partner with influencers that can help you tell that story. Make sure what the influencer stands for aligns with your brand messaging. After all, working with influencers also means you are letting them represent your brand, so find the right partners.

“Being selective with brand campaigns and clients help ensure that we stay authentic to our personal brand and this way, we don't alienate our audience as well. When a campaign is organic and true, it becomes successful.” - Willabelle Ong @willamazing

Your channel for communication

Once you have solidified the message you want to communicate, then choosing your medium or channel for delivering this message is next in your to-do list. Think back to who you're trying to communicate with ⁠— where can you reach them? How can you transform your brand story into an experiential experience to create memorable moments for your audience? Given that Singaporeans spend over 2 hours per day on social media, this is a clear avenue you shouldn't be missing out on.

The good news is you can approach influencer marketing in different ways. From partnering with celebrity-level influencers to micro & nano influencers. As long as your 'who', 'what', and 'how' are clear. Check out this in-depth guide on finding Instagram influencers to promote your brand.

Finally, let me close with a couple of tips from the influencers themselves:

"It’s important to enjoy what you do and lucky for me, that’s trying new things, creating new content and collaborating with brands I love. I started sharing as a hobby and I still try to keep it that way. That being said, these days, a lot more work goes behind the scenes to create good content." - Karen Ashley Ng @renzze

"Keep it real and people will relate to it more is my experience as an Influencer in a nutshell. I have always shared my real life experiences of raising kids, bonding with hubby and my beauty experiments on Instagram. I am unabashedly imperfect and that's what makes life beautiful in my opinion. At the same time, as a hardworking and effective Multitasker, I can touch a chord with my Instafamily. As an Influencer, it's always an opportunity to help others and learn from them." - Shub @shub_sg

"Passion is what drives my content, and I always believe that if you sincerely love what you put out there, people can feel it! This applies to the brands I collaborate with as well. It's important to resonate with the brands' beliefs in order to tell a sincere story together in any collaboration. That's also how @paradeoflove came about - it's a parade of all the things I love!" - Roanna Tan @paradeoflove
