Top 131 “Handpicked” Influencers in Malaysia by Social Media Categories

Top 131 Influencers in Malaysia

.

Ever heard of influencer marketing? Probably, briefly on the surface when you come across social media posts with an influencer endorsing a brand. Those days with Michael Jordan for Nike have resurfaced. However, today it has proven to be a valuable and lucrative business marketing tactic for marketers and businesses in Malaysia, and even worldwide.

Influencer marketing is expected to grow to be worth $13.8 billion in 2021. It’s cash cow material!

Let’s do a brief recap on what influencer marketing if you’re a little rusty on the subject and what exactly this type of sorcery that makes such a clever strategy for businesses. Influencer marketing is a form of marketing that is focused on a specific individual and not the entire market.

Over the past 5 years, it has grown on marketers and businesses that even the biggest names in the industry understand its value in marketing and they want in.

I mean, think about it, there are 7.83 billion people in the world and 4.20 billion of them are active social media users. Are you just going to sit around and wait to take action?

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” — Winston Churchill

Without further ado, let’s delve deeper into understanding more about influencers before we explore our top influencer picks of various industry categories.

About Influencers

Marketers and businesses are soon realizing that it’s always better to send their brand message through the voice of the people — and that’s when an influencer comes in to speak on behalf of the brand to their fans who already follow them socially and trust their taste and choices.

Here, we define the role influencers play in social media:

  • Individuals or groups with the power to affect purchasing decisions of social media followers/fans due to their knowledge, authority, expertise, position, or relationship with their audience.
  • Influencers have a strong following in a certain niche that they actively engage and interact with on social media. The size of their following depends on the size of their topic of the niche and also if they are good at branding themselves.

Do be reminded that these influencers are not marketing tools to be utilized at your disposal. They are respectable individuals that are considered social relationship assets with which brands collaborate to achieve their marketing goals.

Here’s how we label influencers according to their following:

  • Nano: 1,000-10,000 followers
  • Micro: 10,001 – 50,000 followers
  • Mid-Tier: 50,001-500,000 followers
  • Macro: 500,001 – 1 million followers
  • Mega: 1 million + followers 

With the benefits influencer marketing brings, it’s no surprise many marketers and businesses want to tie up with an influencer to increase their brand visibility, establish their niche in the market, and the power to attract your type of audience to your products/services and drive purchasing decisions— resulting in sales.

According to a recent survey conducted by Influencer Marketing Hub, 90% of respondents believe influencer marketing to be an effective form of marketing and 93% of firms take their influencer marketing spend from their marketing budget.

It is apparent that a majority of brands prioritize their budget for influencer marketing, but find it challenging to find the right influencers for their influencer marketing campaign strategy. Assigning the right influencer for your brand is crucial to the success of your business. To find the right influencer for your brand and to coordinate a successful influencer marketing strategy, you can count on us.

However, it takes a level of understanding about the different types of social media influencers in the business. When it first started influencer marketing only dominated a few categories. But today, can you imagine there are thousands of niches for practically everything?

Certainly, we don’t want to overwhelm you with information overload, but in the following section, we will highlight the top influencer marketing categories in the industry. Take a look. 

Top Influencer Categories

  • Beauty

The business of looking good and boosting self-confidence is a major hit globally. Who doesn’t want to look good and solve those insecurities?

The beauty industry is loud and influencer marketing serves as a loudspeaker for this industry. They go hand in hand.

This industry works perfectly on visually appealing platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and even TikTok with all of its effect options and a world of AR filter effects where you can enhance your face shape, put on virtual make-up, and just feel pretty doing it.

Most of these beauty influencers and their followers are predominantly women, although there are some successful male influencers in the mix too. These types of influencers can range from just your average make-up diva to a make-up artist or professional, or even celebrity status influencers that have a penchant for make-up and are truly passionate about all things cosmetics. You can find them share how-to tutorials, make-up tips, get that look tips, Red Carpet Glam looks, product reviews on which brands make or break it in the industry, and plenty more!

Many of these beauty influencers do a little bit of everything according to their interest, but some may focus on a smaller and more focused niche like makeup, nails, haircare, or skincare, and etc.

  • Fashion

It all really depends on some influencers and where their interests lie. But most beauty influencers are able to relate to fashion and can be fashion influencers and trendsetters as well.

Fashion influencers have quite a wide array to explore such as clothing, accessories, and the latest news in the Victoria Secret Runway.

Brands leverage this because this category has a huge niche and appeals to both men, women, and any individual that wishes to express themselves through fashion.

Fashion is also spotted on visual platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok to endorse products, promote them, work with fashion labels, offer styling tips, fashion faux pas moments, fashion try-on haul, and getting celebs to show their fashion tips.

  • Food

Food makes the world go round. Period. It’s an integral part of our daily lives and we’re always having cravings or getting hungry when we see tempting images and videos of food or people savoring it like there’s no tomorrow.

Food has so much metaphorical meaning and it means a lot to every individual out there. Everyone has a favorite dish they constantly think about.

You don’t have to be a foodie to understand food as it’s a basic necessity and part of our daily lives, why not give it a creative twist?

Why do you think those ASMR eating posts are so addictive, you literally cannot stop drooling from one post to another and it encourages you to plan for a specific cuisine.

Generally, there’s more to food than meets the palate, there’s the history of it, culture, tradition, and generations of recipes passed down from our ancestors that make killer content surrounding food. This category is insanely effective and it’s easily relatable. There is no end to food. People go gaga over anything food-related. 

  • Travel

Do you ever fantasize about your dream vacation? Which destination are you drawn to the most?

It is human nature to be curious and to discover a world beyond the country we live in — we were made to seek adventure and thrills.

Why do you think we’re glued to platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok accounts of influencers who live the dream and travel all year round (prior to the pandemic) of course. Because the dream they’re selling is addictive and you want the same for yourself.

Most people can relate to hearing first-person perspectives on travel experiences, tips and tricks to get the best deals, what to pack for a winter holiday, where to find the best gear, where to eat during your travels?

There’s a broad scope of possibilities for travel, such as smaller niches to focus on, ranging from budget camping trips, luxury cruises, to climbing Mount Everest. There are ample choices of content angles influencers work with and it all depends on their creativity.

  • Lifestyle

There are many variations to what a lifestyle influencer is because there’s a variety of aspects to lifestyle.

The scope is very broad and general, so it could be anything from showing off your property, farm, a day in the life of a certain celebrity who makes time for their kids, and appearing on the big screen, checking out staycation spots. And more. The ideas in this category are endless.

  • Parenting

Parenting requires a level of experience, so this is a focused category with the potential to connect to parents or couples that are planning to have a child, having troubles being a parent, or just need advice from a professional regarding the safest products for your child, a discussion on an interesting talk about the struggles they go through and much more.

The most important is this influencer makes their audience feel a sense of belonging and introduces followers to everything that’s related to parenting and also builds a loyal following of brand advocates that swear by the influencer’s views and parenting decisions.

  • Health & Fitness

Health is trending these days and the weight loss industry was the pioneer at offering services and advice on how to lose weight. Now, it has surpassed all that and individuals have documented their weight loss journey, tips on how to lose weight fast, advice on how to eat a balanced diet, and a lot more. There are many influencers that share their journey to reaching their body goals and achieving ultimate health with workout videos such as yoga, Pilates, boxing videos, weightlifting, Muaythai, and workouts that are all beneficial to people of all sizes so they have guidance on how to live a healthy life. 

  • Entertainment

Entertainment is a massive industry with lots of content options to produce. If you’re a big fan of TV shows, comedy, music, sports, or current events, this is your go-to category. Stand-up comedy is a big thing and there’s an audience that appreciates raw content, shows like the Jimmy Fallon Show featuring a talk show host interviewing a famous celebrity in line with an upcoming movie. As long as the topic revolves around any form of entertainer or entertainment and gets a reaction out of the audience.

  • Pets & Animals

Attention all animal lovers! There’s a huge social media community dedicated to all things pets on social media. From pedigree food brands, pet food reviews, promoting like crazy, private pet accounts, and plenty more surrounding pets ranging from pet healthcare, pet dental care, insightful tips on how to calm down aggressive pets.

It’s a huge industry and the influencers usually share on behalf of welfare charities or get celebrities to voice out on topics such as donation drives and to stop animal cruelty in the form of captivating imagery and videos. 

  • Luxury

Who doesn’t want to find out what a life of luxury looks like? Who doesn’t want to see mansions with their convertibles tucked in nicely in the driveway? Everyone wants to see it because not everyone is a born a millionaire or billionaire, so this category stands out.

Sometimes, there are designated hosts that will review a luxury brand or visit the homes of the rich and famous and take the audience on a virtual tour for them to be inspired and to dream of this lavish life of luxury.

Depending on their interest, it could be an influencer showing people around a featured mansion or the riches belong to them and they don’t mind giving you a tour, much like MTV Cribs, the show, except in a social media light.

These luxury influencers will usually cover expensive cars, designer clothes, shoes, bags, bling-bling, and all depending on their interests.

You can almost hear Mozart’s Petite Musique de Nuit play in the background with the word luxury behind it.
