Influencers are beginning to do more than inspire people and market brands. Now more than ever influencers are creating their own brands, and are impacting what brands are selling. Creators have a superpower – they have total access to the consumers’ thoughts and opinions via their platforms. So brands are starting to tap into that superpower, taking the temperature before releasing products so that when they do, those products will be hot. By pulling macros into the development process early, and including micro and mid-tier influencers in product testing, brands are doing just that. In this episode of A Drink with James we dive a little into the FTC guidelines, including influencers in product development and listen to what James has to say about fighting follower fraud in influencer marketing.
