We hate buzzwords and bullshit, so here is what we do and don't do:
We've built a self-serve platform that allows you to run the best influencer marketing campaigns imaginable. It lets you find influencers (over 100,000 of them), get verified analytics, and find out if they have fake followers. It gives you their emails, phone numbers (does anyone call people anymore?), and addresses. It can tell you detailed demographic information about their followers, like where they are from, and how much money they make. It lets you pull reports, do competitor research, and find stats on a hashtag, brand name, or interest. It lets you make lists of influencers and export those to a .csv or beautiful PDF. It can even calculate the EMV (earned media value) of the coverage your brand receives from influencers.
Sound good so far?
Well, you can also brief influencers on a campaign, make offers, send emails to groups of influencers, and when it’s all said and done, pull a full report. It’s supported by account managers who have been working with influencers since they were called bloggers. We would be happy to give you a walkthrough where you can learn more.
We also run managed campaigns. End to end, from start to finish, initial idea to final report. We use technology every step of the way to make these campaigns more efficient and effective: pricing algorithms to make sure you're paying what you should be; tools that make sure you don't pay for fake followers; optimization for repeat impressions or total unique reach. We work on Instagram, YouTube, blogs, Pinterest, hell even Tumblr if you're feeling nostalgic. We can help with creative. We give you in-depth reporting, tracking click-through, impressions, engagements, and sales. We run campaigns from $25,000 to over a million dollars, from one influencer to 4,000.
Here’s what we don’t do: we don't help market your migraine pills or detox tea. We don’t represent influencers, and so we don't try and keep you from having a direct relationship with the influencers you work with. We don't make money by upcharging on what an influencer gets paid. We have never under-delivered on a campaign. We don't like assholes, so we don't employ any of them.
We support influencers. We are nothing without our influencer community, and we act accordingly. Every influencer gets their own Fohr profile page, expanded information about who makes up their following, and verification tools to make sure their followings are authentic. We also try and spread the knowledge we have, with a weekly show called Drink with James, quarterly influencer events like Fohr U's and Five and Wine's. What else you ask? How about access to the hundreds of brands—and millions of dollars, that we pay out to influencers every year.
If you're a brand or an influencer we want you to join us at Fohr, and we’re not afraid to say so.
James doesn’t remember much about his life before Fohr, but knows he started 10 years ago on Wall Street, somehow ended up as Oscar de la Renta’s house photographer and 8 years ago started Fohr with Rich to help more people live out their wildest dreams.
