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.
