Blogmint Launches Responsible Blogging Adoption Program
MUMBAI: Blogmint, India’s 1st automated marketplace that connects brands with bloggers, vloggers and micro-bloggers has launched a pan India program to educate social influencers on the adoption of Responsible Blogging. Influencer Marketing, which is already a global marketing phenomenon is increasingly being adopted in India and there is an urgent need for Influencers to adopt the ethical ways of promoting content be it on blogs, vlogs or micro-blogs.
Influencer Marketing is the fastest growing channel for digital customer acquisition as per a recent publication in AdWeek. As a consequence, Indian brands are increasingly engaging social media influencers as part of their marketing mix for creating brand awareness and product launches. The rationale is that the new age consumers spend more time online and digital starts have more appeal to them than traditional stars. A feedback from social influencers is akin to what a recommendation from family members and peer groups use to do earlier. As their opinions are followed by thousands, it becomes utmost necessary for social influencers to share their opinions in a responsible and ethical way.
The campaign is backed by a series of workshops with social influencers across India and a knowledge center that propagates the message in the social influencer community.
Sharing his views about the campaign, Mr. Irfan Khan, CEO, Blogmint.com said, “Blogmint being India’s leading influencer Marketing platform considers Responsible Blogging adoption program as a duty it has to fulfill to ensure content guidelines are in place much before there is a specific law for it.”
Blogmint has suggested specific guidelines that an influencer needs to follow ranging from respecting copyright and tax laws to disclosing professional relationships to considering the implications of what they write. The effort will lead to cementing the trust and transparency between social stars like bloggers, vloggers and micro-bloggers and their followers.
