Abstract

This digital ethnographic study explored branding principles as portrayed in sponsored, affiliate, and non-sponsored video content created by three YouTube beauty influencers. Utilizing Aaker's (1996) model of brand identity, suggestions for how digital influencers can effectively expand their presence through monetization activities with brands, as well as keep their standing in a digital community, are explored.
