The 2022 Influencer Marketing Industry Holiday Wish List

August is not the time to be thinking of the holidays. Unless you want to ask for gifts that take some savings to afford.

Building Influence Approaches While Instagram Changes Algorithms

Instagram is changing its algorithm and user experience. Kylie Jenner isn’t happy about it. She once critically wounded Snapchat by saying she never goes there anymore. Now she’s created a PR issue for the platform. But the changes to Instagram go far beyond pissing off a Kardashian. Instagram is now outwardly saying video is better. …

Cipio Review - Free Influencer Discovery Software

Cipio.ai Brings Influencer Discovery, List Building to Businesses for Free

Software as a Service (SaaS) products are hard on SMBs. The money is in enterprise customers, so they placate the little guy with a freemium product that almost does what they need, but requires an upgrade. But, of course, the upgrade is far beyond a reasonable budget for many.  So it’s back to Excel sheets …

Leveraging AI to Find Micro-Influencers

We’ve gotten into a little bit of a pattern here on the show. Seems like every other interview or so is with some founder or executive at an influencer marketing software company.

A Cheaper, Faster Path to More Ideal Consumer Insights Through Influencers

The most overlooked facet of marketing execution across our industry is consumer research. The large brands and agencies swear by it. But the one-percent is just that: one percent. When you drop down to the lower end of the large brand spectrum, and then to medium brands and small businesses, consumer insights are seldom even …

Understanding Affinity to Find Success With Influencers

The word affinity has a wide range of meanings. The core one is,  a relationship by marriage. That’s according to Merriam-Webster. But it can also mean a similarity based on a relationship or causal connection.  Which is to say the spectrum of the relationship can be strong. Or not so strong.  I have an affinity …

What if we’re approaching influencer marketing all wrong?

What if we have the formula for influencer marketing all wrong? What if all this organic content creation and brand collaborations is like driving the wrong way down a one-way street? I’m not throwing this out there as hyperbole. I mean it. What if we have it all wrong? Let’s deconstruct the construct for a …
