In his session entitled “The 5 Lessons of Social Influence” Oliver will confront the fact that Influencer marketing is the most ‘overpriced’ and ‘underpriced’ attention in same sentence. He will share what the fundamental things all businesses should know about influencer marketing to aid them in effectively navigating the ‘Wild West’ of media.
As marketers it becomes increasingly frustrating to try and capture, and form real relationships with our audiences. Which is why with so much hype and buzz around social influencers, it can be easy to be tempted by an “easy-win”. However marketers need to tread carefully, in fact, in a recent interview Social Chain CEO Steven Bartlett has recently highlighted how many individuals calling themselves “social influencers” have potentially millions of fake followers. The good news is that if you know how to implement a social influencer strategy correctly, you will be capable of setting your business up for untold success in 2019 and beyond- making sure you grab a seat at Oliver’s session will enable you to do just that.
We asked Oliver what’s the number one reason marketers should attend his session and he said, “Marketers are expected to spend between $5-10b on influencer marketing next year. The cats out the bag, influencer marketing is big business. But with so many challenges facing the industry I’ll be sharing everything you need to know about the wild west of media in 2019”.
