Up until a few years ago, if you ever told someone that you were an influencer by profession, they would just stare at you in confusion. But as social media continues to take over every aspect of our lives, being an influencer can be amazing! Influencers are people that produce engaging content online and have a massive following. They are what businesses now need to attract customers. Get an influencer to wear a shirt from your brand and boom! The sales go sky high!
