Top Indian Macro Influencers

The understanding of the term macro-influencers has transformed multifold ever since it was used. Earlier a macro-influencer was known as any celebrity or public figure with followers between 100k to 1 million. Half of this definition still remains intact while the other half of it has changed and with that so has the influencer marketing industry. Or we could say that the change in the industry led to the change in the definition of macro-influencer. Don’t get confused. Here’s what has happened in the past couple of years. 

The purpose of Instagram was different from what it is today. It was not a social media platform for influencer marketing or business. It was just a social media platform. The number of followers back then determined popularity. It still does, no doubt. But with that, it is so many more things. 

Since back then the significance of the number of followers was limited to popularity it was believed that only celebrities like sports players, models, actors, etc can achieve lakhs of followers which puts them in the bracket of macro-influencers. And hence, they were the only ones believed to be macro-influencers. 

But as people started discovering ‘content’ on Instagram, they started gaining more followers, more audiences. Since their content was very niche, they became a prospect for brands to advertise their products on Instagram and other social media platforms. This went on for a while and bam! We got ourselves these macro-influencers from different influencer marketing niches and an expanded scope for influencer marketing.
