  • Why your influencer partnerships should be treated as a branded community that you cultivate, nurture, and tap into regularly
  • How to vet influencer partnerships during long-term collaborations to ensure brand safety
  • Things to remember when budgeting for long-term partnerships (exclusivity costs, usage costs, etc.)
  • The benefits of leveraging your influencer relationships for product research/development through focus groups and questionnaires
