Prediction 2: The “New, Trusted Web” Will Present New Challenges
6
Influencer
Marketing:
The Foundation
of the Trusted
Web
…FOR BRANDS
Consumers demand transparency and authenticity. They look to
their networks for recommendations, rejecting claims brands make
about themselves. Influencers deliver authentic brand messages—
right inside consumers’ existing, trusted networks. Brands know
this, and need to know how to connect with influencers, manage
the influencer process, and measure the ROI of influencer efforts.

…FOR BRANDS

right inside consumers’ existing, trusted networks. Brands know
this, and need to know how to connect with influencers, manage
the influencer process, and measure the ROI of influencer efforts.
…FOR AGENCIES
Agencies joined the social game at their clients’ requests. But the
content creation and distribution cycles are exhausting, as finding
the right talent with influence over the right niche markets is a full-
time job. And managing and executing influencer programs? It’s
beyond agency expertise.

the right talent with influence over the right niche markets is a full-
time job. And managing and executing influencer programs? It’s
beyond agency expertise.
…FOR INFLUENCERS
Making connections: That’s the superpower of the influencer.
Armed with a particular point of view, and as passionate about
their interests as they are their followers, influencers transformed a
creative release into a primary source of income. Because the trust
of their audiences means everything, opportunities to monetize
must never come at the cost of creativity or authenticity.

Prediction 3: Influencer Marketing Will Deepen Customer Relationships
10

Prediction 4: Content Distribution Will Drive Content Creation
12
Distribution Is Important,
but Still Puzzles Marketers
Of marketers say that “targeting
precision” is the top attribute of
a content marketing campaign
(12)
Yet the number one method of
distribution for content marketing
programs is the company website (12)
Are not satisfied with their ability
to distribute content to the right
audiences (12)
65% 47% 87%
13
Think “Distribution”
to Maximize Your
Influencer Marketing
Efforts
Sharing your content through
influencers in your industry will triple
conversions, in some cases
increasing conversions by a factor of
10. (14)
14
Prediction 5: Influencer Marketing Will Allow Marketers to Be More Efficient
15
Influencer
Marketing
Budgets and
Expectations:
Increasing
As digital marketing portfolios expand to
welcome Influencer Marketing, brands and
agencies will need to scale and measure to
create predictability.
How will we do it?16
Consider:	
  
73%
of marketers will have
budget for Influencer
Marketing (5)
59%
plan to increase the
influencer budget in the

Prediction 6: Influencer Marketing Will Require Automation
20
Influencer
Marketing
Automation
Why?
21
To engineer a new era of customer intimacy that
harnesses the trust and social influence of consumers,
who create and exchange meaningful content with
their audiences on all digital channels
To drive engagement via authentic social
conversations with known and unknown audiences
while rescuing marketers from a dependence on
broadcast and ad-based distribution models
	
  
A New Category:
To connect the right influencers to the right
content in the right channels at the best times
through data-matching and algorithms
To produce predicable, measurable results
for marketers at any level of expertise through
the automation of influencer marketing best
practices and methods

Influencer
Marketing:
How to Scale
Manual Influencer Marketing won’t
support growth, scalability, and
predictability with results.
Influencer Marketing is not a core value proposition.
However, it can quickly be added to the overall
digital strategy with automation.
Influencer Marketing expertise is rare. Finding,
training, and keeping talent is expensive in terms of
cost and resources. It’s much easier to build
expertise through automation.
