So Who Does Your Brand Want To Hire?

When a brand marketer calls our agency and says they want to do 'celebrity influencer partnerships' we know what they likely want to have happen as a result of a social influencer campaign - but often times what they think they are asking for isn't quite it.

Today, there is a very fine line nowadays between 'celebrity' and just 'a big-deal social influencer.'  But a very different deliverable is achieved based on who you work with.  

When someone says they want to partner with a celebrity for social media - sometimes they really do mean they want to partner with a major actor, musician athlete or personality. And we happily create those partnerships.  But they are VERY different from a partnership with a social influencer.
