Social media influencers are ubiquitous
The days when only a selected few could become famous are already gone, now anyone with Social Network Services (SNS) can earn a name for himself through his blog, Youtube Channel, or his Instagram account. People can readily raise his influence-ability and establish new patrons of ideal image and forms.
Furthermore, celebrities and athletes might have a higher number of followers, but the impact they generate is sometimes outperformed by influencers with smaller follower numbers but with a more engaged and connected user base.
The ability of such influencers to lead the attention of a huge user base is undoubtedly valuable, and thanks to the Blockchain Technology we can represent, standardize, tokenize, and create a market for that tokenized value.

Patron use case
Influencers marketing is the next big deal on the advertisement industry, thus a Canadian citizen called Thomas invest part of his time to build an audience on his Youtube live broadcasts, he is a middle size influencer from Canada and he specializes into Anime promotion and reviews. He earns some extra revenue from his Youtube Channel views and subscriptions but they are not enough to cover all his expenses.
He loves to travel to Japan since he is a huge fan of Anime series and he is a good friend of a Japanese influencer called Sosuke. One day while visiting Japan, Thomas meets Sosuke and the later starts to talk about a very promising platform that he has just joined. Thomas tells the story of how his revenue has increased thanks to a contract he signed on Patron with a Local Anime Production Studio.
While listening to Sosuke, Thomas thinks that he is daydreaming… Patron offers just what Thomas needs to go full time on his job as an influencer. Sosuke contacts the Local Anime Production Studio thanks to the PatronPlatform direct message system and talks about the really specific niche that Thomas covers since his audience is composed of several thousand young anime fans in the U.S. and Canada. Actually, Thomas usually makes raffles and other events with the exclusive anime-related products that he brings from each trip to Japan.
The local Production Studio is seeking alternatives to start selling their products to other countries through e-commerce. They review the relevant information from Thomas on the Patron Platform, and they find out that he is just the influencer they need to carry on their marketing campaign. He will not charge unaffordable bills due to his mid-sized followers base. Also, Thomas audience is the exact niche that the anime production studio requires to start expanding their branch to another country.
Thanks to the Patron Platform the Anime Production Studio directly negotiates the deal’s conditions with Thomas, and they create a Smart Contract to enforce the agreed conditions. Finally, Thomas is able to invest more time and effort in his influencer’s activities since he has just signed a year-long contract with the Anime Production Studio that will guarantee a stable source of income. Also, the Anime Production Studio has guaranteed marketing campaigns with an influencer whose follower buying rate grants a effectiveness greater that they could get from a nonspecialized Youtuber with several hundreds of thousands of subscribers. They greatly reduced the costs of their marketing campaign while boosting its efficiency.
Patron will create the first world market for influencers to monetize their communicating power. A new paradigm in the advertising industry is upon us, and the Patron team have created a platform that will provide the necessary tools for the creation of a new market for the new Influencers Sharing Economy.
Influencers, followers, and sponsors of marketing campaigns will be able to engage in a win-win relation on the Patron ecosystem. The revenue earned by influencers will increase because an accurate ranking and pricing system will emerge from the market created on the PatronPlatform. Sponsors will reduce their marketing programs costs since brokers are no longer necessary, and followers will be able to support and earn from communicational power of their preferred influencer.
The impact of this new trend can be easily seen in some of the results of a survey taken in the U.S., according to the survey:
Only 3% of consumers would consider buying a product in-store if it was endorsed by a celebrity. 60% of respondents have taken blogs or social media posts into consideration while shopping.
This survey shows that people ranged between 18–34 years old preferred “peer” advise over “celebrities” advise for their shopping decisions… being this the current trend, the forecasted scenario for Patron is highly promising.
