Modelling the impact of social media influencers on behavioural intentions of millennials: The case of tourism in rural areas in Greece

Chryssoula Chatzigeorgiou

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper examines the ways rural businesses can become attractive to millennials using the Internet and the social media. It has become evident that the prominent way to reach out to millennials is via social media accounts. Rural businesses need to use the personal relationships they develop with their customers and expand these relationships on social media. It is also apparent that traditional marketing fails to apply to small rural businesses, whereas influencer marketing becomes a valuable asset for tourism. The proposed model connects fame, image and activities with the Social Media influencer and the way the decision making of the millennials is influenced when choosing to visit a rural tourism destination, resulting to economic growth and development of rural areas.
