Lunchtime Talk: The Influencer Marketing Dilemma - Unlocking Real Value Amidst Fake Followers, Views & Likes

Join us at our Lunchtime Talk series that brings together the LEVEL3 and Unilever community to hear innovative startups share their ideas, insights and approaches. Lunch and learn with us and be inspired by our resident innovators!

Despite the uphill battle against the growing sense of mistrust in the IM ecosystem, over 50% of all marketers who use IM plan to increase budget allocations next year.

Earlier this year, Unilever CMO Keith Weed vowed not to work with influencers who buy followers, not to buy followers for the company’s brands, and to prioritise partners who increase transparency, and help eradicate bad practices throughout the whole ecosystem.

This session attempts to sketch a blueprint on how to fight fraud, fix gaps in IM practice, and bring content back to influencer marketing.

The session will cover these key areas:

  • What is Influencer Marketing (IM) fraud, and how can brands learn to tackle it?

  • How can you fix the inefficiencies in the IM lifecycle?

  • What is the role of 'content' in IM?
