In 2016, there were 50.77 million Internet users in the Philippines. This number is likely to increase to 57.84 million by 2022. Data shows that people in the Philippines spend an average of 4 hours on social media platforms every day. 

As a result, many brands and marketers prefer promoting content on social media over typical advertising. They reach out to influencers on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook or YouTube with relevant and authentic followers to endorse their products.

As influencers play an important role in marketing, brands need to create effective and easy hiring methods. Manually searching for them may be a good option at first, but it has its limitations. 

It does not guarantee that the desired influencer will meet the brand requirements. If the brand fails to find the right content creators, the entire process becomes futile. Subsequently, it affects brands with the delay in the marketing campaign.

To avoid all this hassle, influencer marketing platforms like Affable.ai assist in running campaigns smoothly. The platform has a database of over 6 million content creators, gives access to a custom list of influencers based on your target market, manages campaigns and tracks competitors' activities.
