Creating Influencer Partnerships for Emerging Brands

June 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT


A study by Rakuten Marketing found that for every $1 spent on influencer marketing, businesses made an average of $6.50 in revenue. This workshop will provide emerging brands with the beginning tools to initiate fruitful influencer partnerships, establish authentic connections, and effectively communicate in the constantly changing field of digital marketing. We will also discuss fair compensation and showcase the principle of equity and how influencer relationships might benefit. Join us to learn useful hints and tactics for reaching out and building rapport with content creators.
