Sammanfattning: Research shows that influencer marketing is an effective way to market on social media. Scientists argue that consumers rely on influencers to help them decide on their purchases and guide them through the whole process. In a world where everyone can become an artist, it can be a struggle to stand out among the crowd. This is why this study aims to investigate if influencer marketing can be a new way for artists to reach various audiences and target groups. We want to explore the possibilities for swedish artists to implement influencer marketing as a way of strengthening their personal brand.  The empirical data is based on eight different interviews and observations on social media conducted through a period of time of about two months. The average time of the interviews was 37 minutes.  The results of this study shows that artists are willing to implement influencer marketing into their lives. This includes doing more collaborations with other influencers and companies. This study shows that there are two ways for an artist to implement influencer marketing into their marketing strategies. An artist can either collaborate with some established influencers and use their platforms to push their music out on social media. This could lead to the artist reaching a new audience and hopefully gain more followers. We also saw that the artist has the possibility to become an influencer in the sense that they collaborate with other brands on their social media platforms. This study shows that there might be risk with connecting your own brand to another but we can not find any major obstacles if the collaboration seems genuine and follows with the artists brand.
