Webinar: Building Brand Trust With Everyday Influencers

Consumers are losing trust in branded content – and this includes traditional influencer marketing. The result? Influencers can’t convert followers to customers at the same scale.

In a survey from UM Media Agency, only 4% of consumers now trust what influencers say online. Instead, consumers are looking for a more transparent, authentic brand experience. To build this kind of authenticity, smart brands, like Nautica, are looking beyond paid influencers to everyday influencers – people’s peers.

In this recorded webinar, you’ll hear from brand experts such as Jenna Williams, Digital Communications Manager at Nautica on the advantages of leveraging passionate customers and brand enthusiasts, and how they can help brands earn more engagement and feedback.

  • How customer-generated content can earn you more customers
  • How successful brands leverage authentic customer voices to boost engagement and awareness
