Show Notes

YouTube Stars on IGTV

  • Gil: Instagram didn’t have this in mind, and it’s probably not good for Influencers. YouTube has taken liberty with demonetization because there’s nowhere to go.

Cheeseboard Trend

  • Gil: I’ve been into cheeseboards for 40 years.

  • Kayli: This article is relevant. I have friends who are Cheeseboard influencers.

  • Kayli: At Hypr we measure audience health.

Vidcon Insights

  • Gil: Lots of competition in Livestream, Shortform Video. As marketers, this gives us a ton of options and ability to price discriminate.

  • Kayli: I’m a cousin of Jojo Siwa, and she was on a top 20 influential list. Built her following mainly with young generation.

  • Gil: My son in starting a class on making your own YouTube channel.

  • Gil: I smirk when I hear “Be Authentic”. I think you just have to Be Different.

  • Kayli: That authenticity takes work. Emma Chamberlain spends 70 hours a week editing her videos.

Trust Insights

  • Gil: We trust people like us.

  • Kayli: I think about purchases I made, and I didn’t buy from Glossier until I saw some content by a buyer.

  • Gil: Don’t mistake Fame for Influence.

Traditional Metrics

  • Gil: How do we ensure that your campaign is effective? There’s a fear to measure against normal marketing metrics.

  • Kayli: Top challenge is to find the influencers, and the 2nd is measuring.

Jobs in Influencer Marketing

  • Gil: 7,700 Influencer Marketing jobs on Indeed. up from 0 in early 2015.
