Unsocial Media: Embracing Unsocial Metrics, The New Way To Win At Influencer Marketing

With so many changes to consumer behaviour, new platform innovations and a shift in the expectations audiences have on creators, the influencer marketing industry continued to redefine itself in 2020. These developments are forcing brands to change how they view the success of their campaigns, with ‘traditional’ social metrics no longer providing an accurate measure of the success of influencer marketing - if they ever really did. Social media is becoming unsocial and it will be those who use these new measurement tools to their advantage who will be the true winners in 2021.

In this talk, Ben Jeffries, CEO of global influencer marketing platform Influencer, presents the findings of Influencer’s latest research report, Unsocial Media: Embracing Unsocial Metrics, The New Way To Win At Influencer Marketing, including comments from 30 leading creators, advertisers and partners; people who have already embraced the shift to unsocial media metrics.

Does it take a scientist to talk to a scientist? Opportunities and barriers for B2B Influencers marketing in the Professional Oral Care community

Influencers are relatively new to B2B marketing. Professional communities like to be spoken as experts, so a key challenge is how to get the right balance between forming emotional connections with the oral care professionals whilst keeping a professional and scientific tone. Finding and selecting the right influencers is not easy. There aren't enough influencers in this sector, and therefore the competition can be high. At the same time, we are faced with the opportunity of creating our own advocates.

Marcus Foley

How to work with top tier talent

Who leads the relationship when an influencer is almost as famous as your product?

Distinction and authenticity are critical. Chasing reach without understanding the connection between your product and the influencer will create content that feels hollow. Get the wrong star, or an overused celebrity and your brand won’t get the attribution it deserves. Working with someone who doesn’t want to truly collaborate can end up being a thankless task.

Marcus will also share some great work, some rules, observations and considerations to help you get the most from working with top tier talent.
