It’s because word-of-mouth marketing is the most effective strategy to reach Southeast Asian consumers.

They prefer honest reviews of a product before actually buying it.

Influencers are not just promoting the brand’s product, but also giving their own experiences using it.

That’s why they love influencers that much.

Now it’s a demand, not just a hack to stand out from the crowd.

Nano influencers are still the most important influencer tier in Malaysia.

Read on and let’s find out why 😉

Nano-influencers are the influencer tier with the highest engagement rate in Malaysia

Fun fact: nano-influencers are the most-demanded influencers by brands in Southeast Asia.

The same goes for Malaysia.

Nano-influencers have the best engagement rate compared to other tiers, that’s why.

The average engagement rate by Instagram influencers tiers in Malaysia
Nano influencers are the best assets for your Brand in Malaysia

Malaysian nano-influencers are generating a 4.7% of engagement rate on average,

While others only generate 1.6% at max.

That’s a very very huge gap, to be honest.

No wonder they are hunted by brands to run their influencer campaigns.

Here is the list of the average engagement rate of influencers by tiers in Malaysia, from the highest to the smallest:

  • Nano-influencers generate a 4.79% of engagement rate on average
  • Micro-influencers have an average engagement rate of 1.62%
  • Mega-influencers generate a 1.3% of engagement rate on average
  • Mid-tier influencers have an average of engagement rate of 1.24%
  • Macro-influencers generate only 1.16% of engagement rate

The number of the engagement rate shows how many & how often people connect with influencers.

The engagement rate represents the trust & closeness of the audience toward the content creator.

The highest the number is, the higher your brand will be talked about.

But nano-influencers have small followers, you need to collaborate with more than 1 influencer in hand.

I promise you can easily create a brand buzz from these small “circles”.

These study cases of brands running past influencer campaigns will show you how powerful nano-influencers are

Total earnings of Malaysian influencers in a month
Depends on what campaigns you will pick

Don’t get me wrong, mega influencers seem like having the highest income,

But if we see at the earning per year, turns out, mid-tier influencers are the one who earns the most.

Since mega-influencers cost a lot, not many brands want to spend their entire marketing budget to pay them.

Then there are mid-tier influencers who, compared to mega, cost more “friendly” with the company wallet.

So, it’s possible that mid-tier influencers accept more campaigns than mega-influencers.

It must be discussed whenever & wherever we can since brands are losing their money over fake influencers.

Malaysia is one of the countries with a quite number of influencer frauds.

This chart shows that every influencer by tier has been involved in fraud.

What kind of fraud do they actually do?

Are we talking about fake followers?

Read on to get the answer.

Common Methods of Influencer Fraud in Malaysia

The thing is, it’s not easy to become an influencer.

There are many influencers who succeed starting from scratch, but some are giving up before succeeding.

As it’s difficult to start an influence, some influencers start to do some “cheating”.

They inflate their account growth & also how they obtain followers.

To check whether the account has fake followers or not, try to see the account’s growth.

If there is a sudden surge of followers, then that is a big red flag.

Suspicious influencers using shady techniques in 🇲🇾

These are the fraudulent strategies that are usually done by influencers in Malaysia.

1. Follow/Unfollow method by Influencer malaysia who does fraud

The first popular method is follow/unfollow. What is it?

Influencers will mass follow some random accounts expecting a follow-back.

After getting the follow-back, the influencers then unfollow them.

The thing is, this method is not approved by Instagram,

that’s why it’s considered an unethical strategy to grow your Instagram followers.

Now, let’s see the next trick move.

2. Malaysian influencers who do fraud buy likes or comments

Yes, there are still influencers who buy likes or comments to inflate their engagement rate.

And the culprit who uses this trick often is Malaysian mega-influencers.

Nano-influencers are the least perpetrators of this buying likes & comments trick (we’ll see).

The number of influencers who are buying likes & comments in Malaysia in 2023
Buying for growing. Not good for you Brands.

No worries, I will give you “precautions” to check the inauthentic comments in an influencer’s post, here we go:

  • Consist of only emojis or words like: wow, cool, fantastic, etc.
  • The words are simple and sometimes, irrelevant.
  • Containing a mention of another account only, no further comment.

3. Malaysian influencer fraudsters use Engagement Pods

If you first listen to this term, here is the explanation.

Engagement pods is a method where a group of influencers in a room chat hype each other’s social media posts by liking, commenting, and sharing.

Basically, these influencers are grouping to support each other’s growth.

Well, it’s sad because the influencer tier that uses this trick the most is nano-influencers.

Pods usage on social media by influencers in Malaysia
Pods are using massively in malaysia

To sum up, every influencer tier in Malaysia has been involved in influencer fraud.

However, the mid-tier influencers are the safest so far in Malaysia.

But you also must be careful with mid-tier influencers as they rank second in the influencer chart with growth anomalies after micros.

The thing is: always do a thorough check on every influencer you’re planning to work with.

Make sure they have authentic account growth & real followers.

Unless you want to lose money. In vain.

How to start an influencer marketing campaign in Malaysia?
