Brands have made a decisive shift toward creator marketing for several reasons. It’s proven at this point to be one of the strongest sales channels. It’s also clear that consumers trust creators more than they trust companies.


There’s more at stake now though than just revenue and consumer confidence. Access to buyers has changed dramatically in 2022 with stricter privacy rules having been established.

They’re having to figure out how to connect with people – how to talk with them, instead of talking at them.

Build a Community of Brand Loyal Fans

The best approach to this is by building an in-house community of content creators who are loyal to your brand and post on social media at scale. Smart brands should see this as an opportunity to build a family of ambassadors, one relationship at a time.
