Influencers – Buy their time, not their mind
By Ted Wright November 4, 2019
Just a quick note.
If you must use an “influencer,” approach the relationship by seeking to buy their time not their mind.
The more requirements you put on them (i.e. # of posts, length of video, etc) the more you make the relationship about the contract and not the partnership.
As my good friend Chrissy, who runs a global surf brand, says “I’ve never had an ‘influencer’ under deliver on quantity only quality.”
We have found that the more respect you show an “influencer” by giving them as few Must Do’s as possible, the more they will do for you.
