Proof in Value of Micro-Influencers

Proof in the Better Value in Micro-Influencers

For the last probably year or year and a half, the conversation about the value of influencers has reverberated with the opinion that micro- and nano-influencers are more effective than the big stars with millions of followers. Logically, that makes sense. You have to spend a lot of money for one post with a big …

Continuing the Conversation on Race and Influencer Marketing

A couple of weeks ago, we had an interesting conversation about race with talent manager Johanna Voss. She represents almost exclusively women of color, though she is not one herself. And most of her clients are of the Hispanic-Latina variety. The natural next step in this conversation for me, anyway, was to dive deeper into …

When In Doubt, Turn To Offline Influence

There’s an agency owner I know out there who listens to this show. He reads the articles I write. He follows my posts on social media. When I recommend a software or a tactical idea, he tries it out. By his own admission, I influence him. I reached out to him recently via email to …

Can Advertising and Influencer Marketing Mix?

There’s always been an unspoken attitude in the world of social media and now in influence marketing that advertising, or at least its philosophies and priorities, does nothing but muck everything up. Social media, and it’s immediate by-product of influencers and thus influence marketing, was, in essence, a way for consumers to push back against …
