Storytelling is one of the most powerful marketing tools that exists. Stories have the potential to shape who we are and what we become and fuel social change. During Social Media Week London, our Influencer Equation track and accounts of those leading in the space will help us explore our ability to act on this opportunity as part of our 2019 theme: STORIES.
The Influencer Equation Track
Influencer marketing has rapidly evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry. And it shows no signs of slowing down. During #SMWLDN we’ll inform your strategies so you can take advantage of the growing opportunities successful influencer partnerships afford.
The Influencer Equation track features leading platforms, brands, and agencies including Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Snap, Julius, Takumi, Ogilvy, General Mills, LEGO Group, and Edelman. Throughout their sessions, they’ll tackle important topics that include best practices for forging emotional bonds with audiences and driving brand conversations, short and long-term influencer marketing expectations, how to execute brand-safe campaigns, and harnessing the power of brand loyalty.
