The definition of a social influencer is expanding rapidly with the evolution of digital and social media channels. Brands of all sizes are looking for ways to engage these influencers to help tell their own stories as more consumers rely on the opinions of their favorite bloggers, you-tubers, instagrammers and snapchatters for their purchasing decisions.

Key takeaways from this session include:

  • Identifying the right influencer for your brand and budget.
  • Creative ways of utilizing influencers while maintaining ethics and transparency.
  • Establishing the right metrics to evaluate the effectiveness of your influencer campaign.
  • Figuring out where influencers fit into your company’s communications strategy – marketing? PR? Blogging? Social media? Or all of the above?
