Why do you need niche influencers?

Social media is a complex digital ecosystem where people of different backgrounds, needs, and interests share the same space. That’s why it’s impossible to please everyone all the time. In order for brands to effectively run their marketing campaigns without breaking the bank, they need to strategically target their audience.
