3. More involvement of micro-influencers

Influencer marketing has been a major social media marketing approach for a long time. However, this trend has increased the service charges of those influencers. The stars of Twitter, YouTube, and other channels surely offer a great deal of exposure, but their pricing has grown a lot.
