The definition of the term ‘influencer’ has become so broad in 2016 that critically, it’s naive of brands to be considering a one-size-fits-all approach.

The Voice of the Influencer report, produced in association with Fashion and Beauty Monitor, considers the characteristics and motivations of influencers, assessing trends they’re observing through their brand collaborations, gaining detailed insight into what matters most and how they like to work.

The highly targeted influencer base surveyed for the report has been further broken down into four distinct profiles, to build a bespoke picture of what each influencer group expects and needs from their brand collaborations.

We’ve also included a separate infographic, designed to give you an at-a-glance view of the key findings of the report.
