The influencer marketing industry was forecast to be worth $13.8 billion in 2021. This is according to the latest Influencer marketing benchmark report from Influencer Marketing Hub. That’s up from just $4.1 billion since last year. The market size has grown steadily year on year, but this year is the biggest jump.
