An Audience with an Audience: Automating Content through Influencer Marketing


Join us for networking, drinks and appetizers with Jaime Reardon and Cristine Vieira from Find Your Influence

For most brands, there’s nothing better than an enthusiastic audience raving about your products. But what if your brand’s audience had an audience of their very own? That’s the philosophy behind the rapid adoption of influencer marketing in large scale marketing strategy – tapping into influencers – and those they influence – and driving brand awareness and satisfaction in the process.

From the basic integration of social influence to turn-key automation of the process, the influencer marketing industry is evolving and smart marketers everywhere are looking to capture an increased share of voice across blogs and other social media channels.

The discussion of where influencer marketing is going has to start at the beginning – so that’s where Find Your Influence co-founders Jamie Reardon Sims and Cristine Vieira begin the discussion with both clients and prospects alike. From baby-steps to bolt-ons, influencer marketing offers agencies and brands a new and impactful way to reach audiences and begin a deeper conversation than can be achieved through traditional channels.

Following several years building influencers marketing programs in technology and identity-theft verticals, both Sims and Vieira switched gears to develop and launch a platform called Find Your Influence, based on a scoring algorithm that allows brands to find the influencers relevant in their space, and to expedite the contact and negotiation that often bogs down influencer marketing. Quicker, and less expensive – a powerful combination when dealing with limited timeframes and tight marketing budgets.

Ultimately, and like most marketing strategy, nimble execution and vertical awareness are key to ensure marketers are taking advantage of the influencer’s reach, and the very concept is often an afterthought when planning a large-scale campaign rollout.

But that begs the question – how can brands and their agency partners reach and motivate influencers without breaking the budget? And how can you find and convert the right types of influencers to speak broadly about your brands in a way that inspires their audience?

Join us on Thursday, February 12th to learn about:

  • How to increase brand awareness, share of voice and audience reach.
  • How to increase customized content.
  • About adopting influencer marketing into a large scale marketing program and strategy.
  • How to find influencers relevant to your brand, product and the appropriate industries and verticals.
