Enjoy! And thank you for listening / watching. What do you think about this series? Is there something I’m completely missing? Am I talking about stuff that’s too basic? Am I making any sense? Would love to know!
I get a little pedantic about things like “What is an Instagram bio?” because a lot of people are starting on this “influencer marketing” thing only in 2017 – they are new to social networks and we can all use a bit of a nudge to get started.
Where will you find influencers? Ask around. Word of mouth is ideal to know who has done solid work. “Follower” counts can be and are super deceptive. Do you research, talk to other brands who have experience in working with influencers. Where did they get value from? Ask for recommendations.
Part Four on the “Influencer Marketing for Brands” series address “relevant channels” and “measurement”. I would like to re-iterate here that I am speaking from own experience of working with hundreds of brands over the years and observing what has worked and what hasn’t. Considering how quickly things change in today’s scenario, as a business owner, you would be wise to consider a variety of opinions, experiment and then own the process for your brand. The things I talk about might help you but I am not an expert in this arena – there are, possibly, many other people who are way more qualified to give you advice about this subject. I’m probably the only one who has a podcast / video series. I’m also probably the only one who’s mad enough to put all this information out on the Internet for free. I am mad passionate about this because this is what I love doing. I thrive in this and absolutely enjoy watching a great influencer marketing plan fall into place. Regardless of whether I’m one of the influencers working with said brand!
