But another famous marketing that many people and brands are doing today is via famous social media influencers, dubbed as influencer marketing.

About 20 million Malaysians are on the internet, and with the rise of social media over the past few years, influencer marketing has become a part of social media marketing and content marketing.

This form of marketing is especially effective among the younger audience who spent most of their time browsing through their feed.

Nowadays, as long as you have a huge number of followers on social media, you can be regarded as influencers, and this explains the rising numbers of social media personalities in the past few years.

However, being an influencer is more than just relying on your good looks and photo taking skills, sometimes you need to be extra creative to get your viewers attention.

So here is our pick on some of the most creative influencers who nailed their influencer marketing!

1Faradyable

Faradyable is a Malaysian YouTuber famous for hilariously dubbing various movies, music videos, interviews and other videos in local language. What’s unique about Faradyable’s videos is that he always tries to match his dub to the lip movement of the original video as close as possible – even if it means that his dialogue ends up spouting nonsense. Though he started his videos on YouTube, recently he has been focusing a lot more on Instagram. Now, he uses his videos to promote and market various local products, and the results are always entertaining.
