Whether you are a JDM fanboy, love American muscle or dream of the latest supercars social media is a haven for car enthusiasts. Petrol heads use social media to show off their rides, find communities of like-minded people and look at the latest trends. Every country has their own car cultures and each culture its own influencers. The automotive industry has leveraged these influencers creating stunning campaigns, telling engaging stories. Like most influencers, motoring influencers hold a unique position between buyers and sellers. However, unlike car salesman whose opinions are oftentimes mistrusted, as consumers know that they have a deep interest in selling cars and products, motoring influencers have opinions that are authentic and are just as knowledgeable about the automotive industry. Motoring influencers authenticity stems from their desire to share the best advice with their audience. When brands in the automotive industry partner with motoring influencers they dodge the mistrust that is often associated with sales in the automotive industry and get directly to the point where the influencer's audience can digest the pro’s and con’s of their product, making smart purchasing decisions.
