The results of the first survey of local influencers were also presented at DIABLOG conference; Ella Dvornik was voted as the Best Influencer. adidas received most votes in the Brand category.
This survey was also carried out by Dialog komunikacije, and it showed certain differences between bloggers and influencers. Most influencers consider their online channel as a job (52,4 %) and they all profit from it, the influencers unlike bloggers are followed by both men and women. They post more on their online channels (more than 15 posts a month), and majority of them post in Croatian and English (76%). More than third of all surveyed (35%) collaborate continuously with 2-3 brands, and earn more than 7 500 HRK a month (30%).
Their message to the brands was to have bigger budgets for marketing influencers and to choose their partners carefully because the friends for hire and mismatched content are the biggest problem in the industry.
