If you don’t know the importance of acquiring and leveraging first party data in marketing yet, let me give you a quick recap.

Using the Creator Economy to Empower Underserved Youth

I want to be painfully honest with you today, gang. What we do in the influence marketing space, or the marketing space overall, often seems to me to be superfluous. Will the world survive if marketing died? Sure it would. Heck, some people would even say it might be a better place.  Sometimes, I’m not […]

Translating Influence Marketing to the C-Suite

We can talk about influence marketing or even influencers … or for that matter just social media marketing all day and it still doesn’t necessarily mean the C-level folks in your business are going to understand and approve what we want to do. Some of us talk to the C-level. Some of us are at […]

We’ve got a little holiday feed drop you today. I know many of you may not pick up the podcast player during this yule tide season or even on until the New Year, but if you’re like me you get through the festiveness and overeating and need a little alone time with a good podcast. […]

Insights on Influence from Celebrity Social Media Managers

In the context of influencer marketing, there’s a big difference between an influencer and a celebrity. My definition of that difference has always been that an influencer is someone who built an audience on social media by creating content on social media. A celebrity is someone who built an audience on social media because of […]

It’s Time for a Gut-Check on Progress in Inclusivity, Diversity and Equity

We’ve talked frequently on Winfluence about the pay gap in influence marketing, both as it refers to gender and race. We’ve also spent some time with some amazing people discussing the issues of inclusivity, diversity and equity. But I don’t think anyone would say we have done so enough. It’s important for all of us […]

The brand pays them, sometimes in cash, other times in product or other valued items. In turn, the creator creates. The influencer recommends, and so on.

What is a Micro-Influencer and how do you leverage them?

If there’s one type of influencer or content creator that I am asked to find more than others these days, it’s the performance-based, affiliate-type of micro or nano influencer that can just drive sales. It make sense that most businesses, particularly direct to consumer brands, would rather skip the high cost, awareness influencer types and […]

How Creators Can Level Up Content & Revenue with Online Courses

There are dozens of different types of influencers. The two that often get the most grief are the superficial fashion and beauty, maybe food and lifestyle influencers that I like to call the peace sign, duck lips crowd. The other are the self-promoting talking head types in the B2B space … often fraught with marketing […]

Tapping into Human Behavior to Be a Better Marketer

When you pull back from the narrow focus of influence and influence marketing and look at marketing and advertising overall, the linchpin to being successful in any of this stuff we call a job or career is understanding consumers.
