The ROI of Influencer Marketing

In the age of authenticity, there’s no greater tool at a marketer’s disposal than influencer marketing. Consumers no longer blindly trust advertisements. Instead, they trust influencers whose judgment has a proven track record. Done right, influencer marketing can communicate a brand’s culture directly to a target audience in a real way. But how do you justify investment in an influencer program, and how do you measure tangible results? How do you go about finding influencers to engage with in the first place? What are realistic goals to set? Which metrics matter and which are simply vanity metrics?

In this panel, our experts will discuss:

  • Why influencer marketing is one of the most effective marketing tools
  • How to find talent that is brand-appropriate and also aspirational
  • What kind of business goals to set with an influencer program
  • How to track and understand metrics to measure a program’s effectiveness
