MnSearch – How to Build an Influencer Network (Michelle Stinson Ross)
March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Getting the attention of someone that’s never heard of your brand before gets more and more difficult every year. Securing influential advocates to link and share is critical to both top of funnel awareness and conversion-driving trust. But counting on free samples and demos won’t be enough to entice influencers to shout your praises. You are going to have to market the value of a business partnership to them just like you are marketing your product/service to your customers.
At the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Identify and qualify influencers from several sources
- Craft news, messages, and value propositions that matter to the press and industry influencers
- Create outreach strategies that span the longer influencer engagement process
