March Executive Luncheon

March 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

The Evolution of Influencer Marketing

Influencer marketing isn’t what it used to be…even from just a year ago.  Its no longer the wild wild west of marketing.  Brand marketers now know how to evaluate and monitor the effectiveness and alignment of influencers.  Consumers are now much more aware of influencers’ role in promoting brands and products.  Legislative bodies have finally caught on and are working laws to protect consumers.  Attend the March executive luncheon to discuss:

  • The growing complexity of influencer marketing
  • New tools and forms of social engagement
  • Evaluating influencer attributes and brand alignment
  • Long term relationship building with influencers
  • The power of micro influencers
  • Best legal practices for brands using influencers

Panelists include three brands and one huge influencer!
