The Very Group: How to Command Influence in 2023
Working with influencers – or as they’re increasingly being called – creators, isn’t what it used to be. Today it’s more of a default than an add-on, and for some brands it’s at risk of wasting their ad spend. For a focused approach to influencer strategy, we’re speaking to Shannon Jennings – head of social and influencers for The Very Group. With a huge roster of retailers in its portfolio, Shannon explains how to treat one-off and long-term talent campaigns, the pivot from traditional gifting when sustainability is front of mind, and whether or not interest in influencers will wain with the current economic state, and some marketing activity in danger of being viewed as a luxury.
