Summary

Influencer marketing isn’t just a trendy marketing tactic. It’s a sound business strategy. But it’s important to understand that influencer marketing is a lot more than simply driving third-party recommendations from social media users with large audiences. It is actually a crucial way to seed your queue of leads and referrals. After all, Engagement Labs research found that as much as 40 percent of a brand’s sales are influenced by word-of-mouth.

  • How and why influencers have emerged as perhaps the most effective path to product recommendation and referral
  • What types of influencer campaigns brands are activating in today's media market
  • How brands and agencies are pushing the envelope on influencer measurement to separate real partners from the wannabes
