We're very lucky to have 3 top FinTech influencers join us for this discussion on the importance of writing a good brief when working with influencers.
• Specificity vs flexibility – is it important to be very specific with an influencer about what you’d like them to do or should you accept it’s better to let the influencer have some freedom to say what they want?
• Give vs take – how should brands think about the ‘give and take’ in terms of working with an influencer.
• What are the sort of things that an influencer values when working with a brand?
• What are the sort of things that an influencer can offer a brand?

Why do brands engage with influencers?
Is it just to try and “reach” the audience of those influencers? Or is there more to influencer engagement than just being an alternative form of advertising?
Are consumers wising up to the influencer-for-hire model, and how will changes in regulation and social network policies change the way brands work with influencers?
Join me for our webinar on Thursday 12th October at 4pm BST where I will answer these questions by discussing the 4 main reasons why brands engage with influencers on social across B2C, B2B and B2G, and how things will likely change going into 2018.
In the talk I will explore the pros and cons of each approach to influencer engagement and what marketing and comms teams need to consider with each approach.

These partnerships include activities such as speaking at events, co-creating content and networking with senior executives. It is therefore imperative that the influencers brands partner with can be trusted and that they share the same brand values so their voice is aligned to the brand’s messaging and that they are a good fit.

They’re savvy, those consumers – they can smell “targeted advertising” from a mile away, and they’re really not interested in it. But they’ll listen to recommendations from their peers, and they trust the integrity of the influencers they follow to never steer them wrong when it comes to brand buy-in.
In a world where consumers are smarter, live streaming makes TV ads irrelevant, and ad blockers are de rigueur, influencer marketing – when you do it right – means making meaningful connections, building trust, and securing loyalty.
What does “right” mean? Don’t miss this VB Live event where you’ll learn how influencers can improve your brand reputation, how to build authentic relationships with the right influencer for your brand, and the mistakes to avoid at all costs.

Let’s face it, when it comes to marketing, our target market has created a wall, it’s not their fault, it’s ours. Think about this - you’re responsible for generating over 5,000 leads this quarter, how are you going to do it?
- Create another eBook?
- Write more blogs?
- Invest more money in AdWords?
- Refocus on building pipeline with ABM?
You would probably want a combination of all the above, but that’s time-consuming and quickly adds up $$$. And even if you’re doing all of the above, there isn’t a guarantee that these channels will cut through the noise. Take these examples into consideration:
- 57% of Internet users don’t click on banner ads because they’re afraid of receiving spam or malware.
- 18% of Internet users in the U.S. use an ad blocker, which resulted in a loss of $5.8 billion in ad revenue on 2014.
- Spotify Premium grew by a cool 10 million users since 2014 as consumers sought an ad-free listening experience.
If you’re a start-up, small company, (even if you’re pretty big) marketing budgets are tight and always scrutinized. Influencer marketing has proven to be a profitable and scalable channel, if done right.
