Spot trends and the influencers shaping them
Shape messages targeted to your industry and audiences
Create a trend or two of your own
It’s time to leverage influencers in your content for maximum impact.

• Find the right influencers and get them to work with you
• Make the most of those relationships once you’ve established them
• Measure the success of your influencer programs
