“Consider me influenced” is a phrase that’s music to any content curator’s ears. As an influencer myself, I’m always excited when people ask me about my fashion, fitness, home design, travel, or cooking. Influencers work so hard and in so many innovative ways to inspire their audience. TV advertisements used to be the influencers du jour, but now it’s all about platforms like Instagram and TikTok.
