Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Influencer Marketing Platform Market

COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in a temporary shutdown of several businesses as well as social distancing from the external world. Numerous measures have been implemented to control the coronavirus's spread, such as the imposition of a mandatory quarantine, closure of business setups, travel restrictions, and cancellation of events. Similarly, the marketing landscape has experienced many transformations due to social distancing as well as quarantine, changing the usual way of living. As marketing expenditure has been cut off, brands capitalize on digital marketing methods, including emails, social media, and influencer marketing.

This is mostly contributed to the extraordinary increase in the consumption of social media platforms during people's practice of social distancing. With the increasing use of social media, influencers have gained an opportunity to keep their active audience engaged, with their creative and positive content.
