Hey Influencers, Listen To Your Audience!

By |March 8th, 2017|

While the influencer resilience post was designed to build you up when you’re frustrated, this is designed to keep you grounded. I like to think of this as the “get your sh*t together” companion piece to that article. If you’re losing your audience, don’t cast blame; rather, be retrospective about it.

If you are, then it is no surprise that you’re now getting pitched. The question then: when and how should you negotiate?

Appropriately, it seemed like a good time to raise the subject of performing post-mortem analysis on your campaigns.
