Who are micro influencers?

There are no strict criteria of who qualifies as a micro influencer, but at KOL agency coStory we focus on Hong Kong Instragrammers with 1,000 to 100,000 followers.


Micro influencers, or key opinion leaders (KOLs), have specific knowledge and influence in their respective field, they’re trusted, and they affect consumer behaviour.


Although they have a smaller audience, micro influencers appeal to a specific niche or topic. For example, a beauty micro influencer may only have 5,000 followers, but they are all beauty enthusiasts and therefore highly engaged.


Of course, we also work with travel influencers, food influencers, fitness influencers and those focusing on any popular topic worthy of its own group of influencers.

Why micro influencers?

We work with micro influencers over macro influencers on our KOL platform because they can be better for Hong Kong brands in multiple ways.

Higher Engagement

Micro influencers have a much higher engagement rate than macro influencers. Those with under 1,000 followers have an 8% like rate whereas those with over 1 million followers have only 1.7%.

More Affordable

Micro influencers cost much less than macro influencers. While macro influencers often charge at least $500, micro influencers get to work with as little as $100. Great ROI!

User Generated Content

Micro influencers supply great UGC that can build rapport with followers in a way brand content never can. Think of micro influencer campaigns as a massive UGC machine.

More Authentic

Micro influencers have fewer followers, so they have more time to engage them by replying to comments and messages. Therefore, they feel less like distant celebrities and more like real, relatable people.

More Trusted

Micro influencers have a much more targeted follower base than macro influencers. Although they have fewer followers, their following usually has more relevance and value.

More Targetted

Micro influencers have a much more targeted follower base than macro influencers. Although they have fewer followers, their following usually has more relevance and value.
