This article will introduce you to the 5 top female influencers in Indonesia, hand-picked by our in-house Indonesian social media specialist! It covers Instagram profiles about the influencers’  engagement rate and demographic of followers on their main channel via the leading influencer marketing platform Upfluence with the following key insights:

Previously, we have explored the key cultural facts and social media penetration in Indonesia. Similar to other Southeast Asian countries, Indonesians value the concept of “face”, which refers to a person’s reputation, influence, dignity and honour”. It is a virtue to be conservative and not stand out to avoid the risk of losing “face”.  Influencers represent the  “face” of a brand. The brand needs to research, cast, and brief precisely to select the most suitable endorser representing the brand image.
