How to Adapt your Influencer Strategy for the New Industry Climate
Watch On demand
The CV-19 pandemic has disrupted the business landscape as we know it, and while many challenges have arisen, we know that big changes bring about equally big opportunities. While the global population remains indoors, people are focusing their attention on social media and relying on the influencers they trust in new ways. Social channels are playing a key role in keeping people connected to each other and, of course, brands to their customers. This is an opportunity for brands to rebuild direct relationships and ensure relevancy in their customers’ lives. The onus is on companies to take the time to analyze and measure what their audiences needs are in order to maximize the result of each and every brand action. As a part of this brand journey, influencers will also need to elevate their role to be part of this re-setting of the industry.
As we prepare for this “New Industry Climate” and what it means for Influencer Marketing, we’d like to take you through the trends that we think will define the status of the industry in the next period to help you design your future strategies.
