In a time where consumers have been confined to their homes and social contact has been limited; influence has been pulling to the forefront of our increasingly virtual reality. Where other channels have been on the back foot, unable to activate amongst social distancing, influence has found itself in a unique position. In this episode of Social Minds, we’re joined by head of influence at Ogilvy, Rahul Titus, to find out how brands and agencies can future proof the influencer marketing landscape when it is needed more than ever, and new platforms like TikTok are changing how we interact with and discover talent. Challenges such as brand safety, engagement fraud and consumer mistrust still plague influencer marketing, and Rahul says it’s up to us to address these issues as influencers will become ever more important to their brand partners. In this, expect to hear why the ASA is crucial, the opportunities for influencers now and the measures brands can put in place to ensure real ROI from their influencer campaigns.
