Executing a Data-Driven Approach to Influencer Marketing

The follower count is frequently used to calculate rewards, but this is a crude metric to assess the output of an Instagram influencer campaign. Solberg Audunsson, CEO of Takumi, breaks down what is behind the follower count, how to think about and tackle fraud and what tools are available to advertisers today to reduce waste at various points in the pipeline.

This presentation will discuss how brands can make the most of their influencer content to maximise the ROI from their influencer spend.
