Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilken betydelse influencer marketing på sociala medier har på unga kvinnor i åldern 18-25 år, samt om det har någon inverkan på unga kvinnors köpintentioner. För att uppfylla syftet har två forskningsfrågor undersökts och denna empiriska studie har baserats på en kvalitativ undersökning genom en enkätstudie och två fokusgrupper. Influencer marketing anses vara ett effektivt marknadsföringsverktyg som innebär att företag använder sig av influencers för att nå ut till fler konsumenter och sprida företagets produkter och tjänster. Resultatet av studien visar på att influencers öppenhet och trovärdighet påverkar unga kvinnors uppfattning av influencer marketing samt på deras köpintentioner. Influencer marketing ansesvara mer trovärdigt än traditionell reklam, vilket även bidrar till att konsumenterna köpintentioner ökar i en eftersträvan efter gemenskap, tillhörighet eller enbart inspiration. Hur unga kvinnor påverkas i deras köpintentioner av influencer marketing på sociala medier är bådevarierande och individuellt. Konsumenter tar till sig informationen från influencer marketing på olika sätt, vilket leder till en varierad påverkan på unga kvinnors köpintentioner.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the significance of influencer marketing on social media for young women between the ages of 18-25 years old, and whether it has any impact on young women's buying intentions. To meet the purpose, two research questions have been investigated and this empirical study has been based on a qualitative research through a survey and semi-structured interviews in the form of two focus groups. Influencer marketing is considered an effective marketing tool which indicates that companies use influencers to reach out to a bigger number of consumers and spread the information about the company's products and services. The result of the study shows that the influencers openness and credibility affect young women's perception of influencer marketing and also their buying intentions. Influencer marketing is considered more credible than traditional advertising, which also contributes to consumers increasing buying intentions in the pursuit of solidarity, belonging or just for inspiration. The way that young women are affected in their buying intentions of influencer marketing on social media are both varied and individual. Consumers process the information from influencer marketing in different ways, which leads to a varied impact on young women's buying intentions. This study is written in Swedish.
