For years, celebrities and users with millions of followers (macro-influencers) have held court; however, a saturation point has arrived to make way for a new class: micro-influencers, who have a smaller group of followers but a more loyal pre-existing fan base to share. Read on to see how micro-influencers are changing social marketing and how you can use them.
