The key takeaways from this episode:

  • Influencer marketing is when somebody that has a substantial amount of clout, whether that's on social media or on other platforms, markets your brand as an ambassador for your brand in exchange for products or payment.
  • To work with an influencer marketer you first have to establish what your niche is and what the variations are that set your product apart from the others. Then, you need to establish the type of person you will align with who might have the follower base who would purchase your product.
  • To attract followers you have to offer your audience some sort of value. From there you need to be clear on who exactly you want to be following you. 
  • It's important to be strategic and spend your time on the social media platform that's going to result in a sale for you.
