Overview

Two charts to start things off
Looking across the region, YouTube emerged as the most favoured channel for influencers in Asia, with almost one in every two
influencers owning an account on YouTube. Instagram lags behind, making up approximately a quarter of all influencers.
With micro-influencers making up the largest influencer demographic and nano-influencers making up the second-largest
population, it comes as no surprise that there’s so much hype today around leveraging on these influencers for campaigns.

Where are the influencers?
For influencers in Asia, the most common
vertical is arts & entertainment, which is no
surprise as it’s one of the broadest verticals -
containing talents from actors and
musicians, to dancers, models and more,
across varying levels of prominence.
The two most-common influencer verticals
are also the most dynamic, and brands in
various industries can also leverage on
influencers in the arts & entertainment and
fashion & lifestyle verticals.
Over the past year, the fastest-growing
influencer verticals across Asia are the
fitness, family and beauty verticals, with
influencers increasingly creating content
indoors. *Influencers are categorized based on the type of content that they primarily create
Top influencer verticals in the past year
7
Did the pandemic impact influencer marketing?
There was no uncharacteristic drop in influencer campaigns on the CastingAsia platform throughout COVID-19, and a deeper
dive into campaign data showed shifts in campaign strategies. This is in no way representative of the wider influencer marketing
industry, with the CastingAsia platform’s capabilities ensuring marketers can still effectively run influencer marketing campaigns.
The period of March 2020 to April 2020 consisted of campaigns with a stronger focus on corporate social responsibility and
branding, whilst May 2020 and June 2020 saw digitally-equipped businesses excel. The majority of businesses resumed influencer
marketing from July 2020, with an increased number of influencer marketing activities expected in Q4 2020.

Which platforms are influencer marketing campaigns run on?
Instagram is the platform a majority
(45.08%) of influencer marketing
campaigns were run on in the past year,
and on the other end of the scale is Twitter,
with 10.57% of all influencer marketing
campaigns.
Interestingly, Twitter started slow, but
influencer marketing campaigns on Twitter
started seeing growth momentum from
March 2020 onwards - coinciding with the
month COVID-19 was declared a
pandemic.
Additionally, in the recorded months for
2019, Instagram was the platform of choice
for more than half of influencer marketing
campaigns, but that has dropped in 2020.

look at
various
markets
10
What platforms are influencers using in Asia?
With Asia being such a large and
diverse region, it is no surprise that each
market has varied platform usage rates
by influencers.
The dominant social media platform
differs by market, with Instagram the
most-used in markets like Hong Kong,
Malaysia and Singapore, whilst
Facebook is the dominant platform in
Myanmar.
Japan has the highest Twitter to other
platforms ratio out of all markets in Asia,
with the Philippines and Singapore
trailing somewhat behind.
Additionally, there is no market which
has an equal ratio of platform diversity.

11
How does influencer follower volume stack up across markets?
Across the region, micro-influencers are the
most populous demographic (46.32%) for
social media influencers in Asia, barring
Myanmar, where macro-influencers are the
most populous.
On top of that, Malaysia, Thailand,
Indonesia and the Philippines saw faster
growth in the micro-influencer population
over the past year, with the Philippines
pegged as one to watch over the next
year.
For standardization, influencers are classified as follows: end users (100-1k followers),
nano-influencers (1k-10k followers), micro-influencers (10k-100k followers), macro-influencers
(100k-1M followers), top stars (1M+ followers)

Which platform is best for engagement?
Looking at the top three most-favoured
social media platforms by influencers in
Asia, Instagram emerged as the best
platform for engagement rates on
influencer content, with micro-influencers
performing the best.
On Facebook, micro-influencers have the
best median engagement rates, but
nano-influencers interestingly performed
better for engagement rates on YouTube.

Post engagement = clicks to site?
As seen from the chart to the left, high
engagement rates on influencer posts do
not necessarily mean an influencer’s
followers are clicking onto a landing page.
However, high engagement rates on
influencer posts are indicative of raised
awareness, whilst high click rates on
influencer posts are indicative of interest
and consideration.
To measure the success of influencer
marketing campaigns, it’s important for
marketers to set metrics based on desired
objectives, rather than measuring purely
based on engagement.
Data was obtained from campaigns run on the CastingAsia platform that measured engagement
and clicks. Outliers have been removed for better representation.
Clicks versus engagement rate on influencer posts
Key takeaways
Objectives
Always plan influencer marketing campaigns based on objectives. This will
allow marketers to decide the types and verticals of influencers needed,
platforms to utilize, performance metrics to consider and types of content to
be delivered.
Success in diversity
With Asia being such a diverse region, it’s important that marketers plan
influencer marketing campaigns around specific markets and even
provinces. Do not adopt a one-size-fits-all approach, as this will make your
brand seem tone deaf not just to audiences, but influencers too.
Tiered approach
Focusing on just one segment or follower size of influencers limits the
potential of a great influencer marketing campaign. Instead, match your
brand’s audience and social media followers with the followers of
influencers, or leverage on multiple segments of influencers.

  • 5. 5 Two charts to start things off Looking across the region, YouTube emerged as the most favoured channel for influencers in Asia, with almost one in every two influencers owning an account on YouTube. Instagram lags behind, making up approximately a quarter of all influencers. With micro-influencers making up the largest influencer demographic and nano-influencers making up the second-largest population, it comes as no surprise that there’s so much hype today around leveraging on these influencers for campaigns. Most-used social media platforms by influencers in Asia Influencer demographics
  • 6. 6 Where are the influencers? For influencers in Asia, the most common vertical is arts & entertainment, which is no surprise as it’s one of the broadest verticals - containing talents from actors and musicians, to dancers, models and more, across varying levels of prominence. The two most-common influencer verticals are also the most dynamic, and brands in various industries can also leverage on influencers in the arts & entertainment and fashion & lifestyle verticals. Over the past year, the fastest-growing influencer verticals across Asia are the fitness, family and beauty verticals, with influencers increasingly creating content indoors. *Influencers are categorized based on the type of content that they primarily create Top influencer verticals in the past year
  • 7. 7 Did the pandemic impact influencer marketing? There was no uncharacteristic drop in influencer campaigns on the CastingAsia platform throughout COVID-19, and a deeper dive into campaign data showed shifts in campaign strategies. This is in no way representative of the wider influencer marketing industry, with the CastingAsia platform’s capabilities ensuring marketers can still effectively run influencer marketing campaigns. The period of March 2020 to April 2020 consisted of campaigns with a stronger focus on corporate social responsibility and branding, whilst May 2020 and June 2020 saw digitally-equipped businesses excel. The majority of businesses resumed influencer marketing from July 2020, with an increased number of influencer marketing activities expected in Q4 2020. Lowest active campaigns Active campaigns by month in the past year
  • 8. 8 Which platforms are influencer marketing campaigns run on? Instagram is the platform a majority (45.08%) of influencer marketing campaigns were run on in the past year, and on the other end of the scale is Twitter, with 10.57% of all influencer marketing campaigns. Interestingly, Twitter started slow, but influencer marketing campaigns on Twitter started seeing growth momentum from March 2020 onwards - coinciding with the month COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. Additionally, in the recorded months for 2019, Instagram was the platform of choice for more than half of influencer marketing campaigns, but that has dropped in 2020.
  • 10. 10 What platforms are influencers using in Asia? With Asia being such a large and diverse region, it is no surprise that each market has varied platform usage rates by influencers. The dominant social media platform differs by market, with Instagram the most-used in markets like Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore, whilst Facebook is the dominant platform in Myanmar. Japan has the highest Twitter to other platforms ratio out of all markets in Asia, with the Philippines and Singapore trailing somewhat behind. Additionally, there is no market which has an equal ratio of platform diversity. Most commonly-used platforms for influencers
  • 11. 11 How does influencer follower volume stack up across markets? Across the region, micro-influencers are the most populous demographic (46.32%) for social media influencers in Asia, barring Myanmar, where macro-influencers are the most populous. On top of that, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines saw faster growth in the micro-influencer population over the past year, with the Philippines pegged as one to watch over the next year. For standardization, influencers are classified as follows: end users (100-1k followers), nano-influencers (1k-10k followers), micro-influencers (10k-100k followers), macro-influencers (100k-1M followers), top stars (1M+ followers) Influencers categorized by follower volume
  • 13. 13 Which platform is best for engagement? Looking at the top three most-favoured social media platforms by influencers in Asia, Instagram emerged as the best platform for engagement rates on influencer content, with micro-influencers performing the best. On Facebook, micro-influencers have the best median engagement rates, but nano-influencers interestingly performed better for engagement rates on YouTube. Random sampling of 9k influencers in Asia with 1,000 to 1,000,000 followers. Date range: September 2019 - August 2020 Median engagement rates by platform Nano-influencers (1k-10k followers) Micro-influencers (10k-100k followers) Macro-influencers (100k-1M followers) Facebook 1.18% 1.20% 0.83% 0.42% 2.91% 0.52% 2.45% 0.28% 1.83% Instagram 3.07% 3.28% 2.60% 1.37% 6.58% 1.57% 6.35% 1.25% 5.30% YouTube 2.31% 1.61% 1.03% 0.79% 4.44% 0.68% 3.19% 0.35% 2.27% 1st quartile Median 3rd quartile
  • 14. 14 Post engagement = clicks to site? As seen from the chart to the left, high engagement rates on influencer posts do not necessarily mean an influencer’s followers are clicking onto a landing page. However, high engagement rates on influencer posts are indicative of raised awareness, whilst high click rates on influencer posts are indicative of interest and consideration. To measure the success of influencer marketing campaigns, it’s important for marketers to set metrics based on desired objectives, rather than measuring purely based on engagement. Data was obtained from campaigns run on the CastingAsia platform that measured engagement and clicks. Outliers have been removed for better representation. Clicks versus engagement rate on influencer posts
  • 15. Key takeaways Objectives Always plan influencer marketing campaigns based on objectives. This will allow marketers to decide the types and verticals of influencers needed, platforms to utilize, performance metrics to consider and types of content to be delivered. Success in diversity With Asia being such a diverse region, it’s important that marketers plan influencer marketing campaigns around specific markets and even provinces. Do not adopt a one-size-fits-all approach, as this will make your brand seem tone deaf not just to audiences, but influencers too. Tiered approach Focusing on just one segment or follower size of influencers limits the potential of a great influencer marketing campaign. Instead, match your brand’s audience and social media followers with the followers of influencers, or leverage on multiple segments of influencers.
