    I was recently at the EMEA PROI conference in Prague and was asked several great questions around influencer marketing and my opinions on how to do it the right way. It got me thinking - and I don’t believe there’s a universally right way go about it - each case, and each brand, is unique and requires something a little different than the next.

And since, in the fight for attention, news and advertising are inextricably linked (finding news is a big reason your target audience picks up their phone and sees your brand) we all have responsibilities as we market a brand
