Influencing the Influencers through Influencer Marketing
November 15, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for an introduction to the concept of influencer marketing, how to create an influencer marketing strategy, and best practices in engaging with influencers. We all know that we trust friends more than anyone else, so what if our brand can use the power of relationships to help promote our presence in a more natural way. “Influence” is a potential minefield as lots of social media followers doesn’t necessarily lead to having relevant influence in convincing others to act on behalf of your brand. This presentation will focus on helping you understand the current influencer marketing landscape, including relevant case studies, so that you can make an informed choice on behalf of your business as to the why and how you should execute an influencer marketing program to help reach key social media strategy objectives.
You’ll go back to your office understanding:
- The two predominant influencer marketing trends of marketplace vs. organic influencer marketing.
- How to develop influencer relationships through content curation and co-creation.
- The difference between, yet ideal evolution to convergence of, advocacy marketing and influencer marketing.
