This study examines the effects of sponsorship disclosure by social media influencers on consumer perceptions. Influencers on the social media platform Instagram were focused on, testing consumer perceptions of trust, relevance, engagement, feelings towards the brand, and purchase intentions. The study was done through exploratory survey research analyzing the effects of different sponsorship disclosures on the variables (N=93). The study found a sponsorship announcement to show significantly positive results across the variables, with a discount code also shown to be significantly positive towards purchase intentions.
