S3 EP21: HOW TO FIND INFLUENCERS WITH CEO OF SOCIAL PUBLI, ISMAEL ED-QUDSI

Ismael El-Qudsi is the founder and CEO of Influencer marketing platform Social Publi. Like many PR agencies in the early days of influencer marketing they realised having huge excel files kept updated with influencer data was a huge challenge. In addition to that Ismael says not everyone has a PayPal account. Social Publi works in 35 countries and many of the campaigns running are between 50-200 influencers at the same time so having a proper management tool is essential. Social Publi have over 300,000 influencers signed up to their platform and therefore the data is being driven by the recipients. Ismael shares more of his insights on this great podcast.

S3 EP20: HOW TO WORK WITH MICRO-INFLUENCERS, DAVID MORNEAU EXPLAINS ALL

David Morneau is the CEO of US based Inbeat agency – specialising in micro-influencers. Micro-influencers can create great value for your investment, they often don’t have agents. The brand fit with the influencer relationship is so important. David talks about how to budget for campaigns. Could you run a pilot to see how they engage with perhaps a free product. Understanding how to create an effective ROI is still a challenge for some. Phoneloops is a brand who have 1,000 ambassadors in place, they can ‘ship’ them because it’s a low cost product. It would be different if it was a higher value product.

S3 EP19: GAUTAM GANGLANI, INFLUENCER, THOUGHT LEADER AND GLOBAL EVENTS ORGANISER

How does a global event organiser and speaker management service run events in a challenging 18 month period? Gautam Ganglani ran 100 webinars last year just to stay connected to his global audience and to build value with no commercial return he says. Traditionally he represented authors and not all of these make great online speakers so it was a big learning experience. The skill set required for trainers is very different for speakers with 1,000 people. Gautam talks about some amazing events he managed with Stephen Covey. Diversity and inclusion have been major topics. Technology, strategy, gaining trust and anything in the communication space. Strategy in particular has been a major topic, hear more from Gautam in this enlightening episode. Thought leaders are providing content online. One of the best examples is Marshall Goldsmith where he provided all of his slides that can be copied and shared. He was the highest paid and most booked speaker by Right Selection.

S3 EP14: LIVESTREAM SHOPPING IS EXPANDING HUGELY; WE SPEAK TO VIDEO COACH DEXTER MOSCOW

In this episode we are talking livestream shopping with Dexter Moscow, video coach and author of Stand Up and Sell. Dexter has worked with many well known brands and been a former guest presenter for many years on the shopping channel QVC, a brand that now generates over $9bn in revenue. Big E-commerce platforms like Amazon and Alibaba have realised the value of influencers not as mere promoters but highly successful sales drivers. In 2020 Alibaba said it was recruiting 3m influencers, 100k in the first year and Amazon too have requested similar numbers to launch their Amazon influencer programme. Dexter talks about some of the qualities it takes to be a good sales person in a live environment. Some influencers like BeautybyCarla now promote themselves as Amazon Influencers, so what does the future hold for this rapidly growing area. I started by asking Dexter about how he started out in his career.
