Influencers are big business. They're increasingly recognized as genuine change-makers by mainstream media, and they collectively make up one of the fastest-growing marketing channels.

The industry around them is increasingly specialized and wide-ranging. From a panel reflecting the breadth of that industry, we'll ask: what are the most exciting corners of that industry right now, and where's the smart work heading?

To discuss all that, senior tech reporter Chris Sutcliffe is joined by:

  • Robbie Murch, founder, Bump agency

  • Kineta Kelsall, senior director of training (social media), Jellyfish

  • Bea Iturregui, VP of brand partnerships, Cycle (Wasserman)

The panel discusses the following, to provide a holistic look at the influence economy in 2022.

  • What does the influencer-agency-client relationship look like in 2022?

  • To what extent do micro-influencers with relatively small audiences fit into clients' priorities - or do they solely focus on the biggest influencers?

  • Does the marketing industry expect influencers to be across all social platforms, or is it fine for them to only have one core platform?

  • From which platforms and emerging trends should we expect to see the next big influencers?

  • What is the best piece of influencer creative you can think of from the past few years?

    The latest marketing news and insights straight to your inbox.
