In fact, a lot of it isn’t actually influence at all. No machine can create it. No robot or algorithm can package it correctly. Influence is the ability to shape thoughts, feelings and decisions. You can’t touch it – not on a billboard, glossy magazine or pop up ad. Influence isn’t created by “likes” and “comments.” It comes from the tastemakers of tomorrow using social to share, connect and inspire, daily.
In order to be truly successful, influencer and content creators need to:
A content creator’s greatest strength is their authenticity. Allowing an influencer to lead the conversation in a way that resonates with their audience is key to effective branded communication.
Reach new audiences
Organic discovery strategies are limited to what platforms allow, but partnering cross-brand or cross-category can open up an entirely new audience segment.
Develop direct, long-term brand relationships
Constant one-hit sponsored posts don’t feel natural and disrupt a content creator’s feed. Longtail partnerships offer consistency and natural alignment.
We don’t broker ads. We spark conversations between niche creators across the globe and the brands who seek to engage with their audiences. We ensure that content creators speak to their followers in a way that feels true to their aesthetic and voice and ladders up to their values and POV.
