Session Replay Building a Brand Story

In our Brand Marketing session we heard from industry leaders who emphasized the abundance of influencers in niche communities, and highlighted the importance of looking at platforms that cater to the creator economy, such as TikTok for discovery and YouTube for monetization. The panel also discussed the challenges of managing an influx of creators and the need to tailor the platform choice based on the product and business strategy. The conversation addressed the evolving landscape of influencer sourcing and the rise of UGC content in the post-TikTok era.
