In a context of growing influencer marketing, it is important to question the role influencers play in the consumption decisions of minors. The special rapport that these content creators are able to create with their followers establishes a framework of credibility that also applies to their publications for commercial purposes. From a qualitative perspective using 12 focus groups, the aim has been to delve into the relationship between influencers and minors between the ages of 11 and 17 who live in Spain, in order to discover the perception and collective imagination of adolescents regarding their relationship with influencers and the commercial implications that this relation entails. The findings reveal that the link developed between the minor and the influencer has a direct impact on the level of credibility bestowed on commercial publications, which is directly dependent on the type of influencer; minors do not object to an influencers commercial collaborations as long as the resulting content is useful or entertaining and has a connection to the profession or lifestyle of the content creator who promotes it. On the other hand, unlike adolescents, the youngest participants demand interaction with their idols.
