Influencer marketing’s future mapped out in our free download guide

Over the last few years we’ve written plenty about influencer marketing. From questions about its legitimacy to the impact of major changes to social networks on this discipline.

Recently this has included our guide to using Snapchat for influencer marketing, what it means for influencer marketing if Instagram hides its like count, and the best ways to measure influencer marketing success.

But what about the future of influencer marketing?

With so much knowledge surrounding this niche sector we decided it was time to increase the reach of our knowledge sharing. on Wednesday  15th May we hosted the latest Prolific North Roundtable event, on the future of influencer marketing. We also took this opportunity to download our latest thought leadership resource.
