What will you be discussing at Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2018?
I’ll be speaking about the ultimate management tool for influencer marketing campaigns. It’s just a small spoiler. Want to learn more? Then come to the event and watch me presenting it. I’ll be happy to discuss it.
What do you think have been the hottest trends in the influencer space during the last 12 months?
I’ve been observing a great number of YouTube channels making Fortnite content. This game has become extremely popular with influencers around the world. Vine content is a trend nowadays too.
Singing among influencer has also become popular. I know a couple of YouTubers from Eastern Europe that made some really cool tracks which were included in music charts.
Sports is popular everywhere and influencers are no exception. Social media sensations KSI and Logan Paul touched gloves in "the largest ever amateur boxing fight". The fight has been labelled "the largest event in YouTube history”.
As for advertising platforms, I’d like to underline the active promotion through Instagram influencers. All of this led to higher advertisers’ expenses over the last 12 months.
What do you think the next 12 months in are going to look like?
Today, almost all routines tend to be replaced by technologies. There are some tech platforms already offering automated social influencer deals, but they are not efficient. So, influencer marketing still has enough manual work to do.
One of the main market challenges is how to distribute roles in managing influencer marketing campaigns in the world of big data and AI, and which level of engagement into this process will be the best option for customers.
Beyond that, with higher market competition and an increasing number of ads, just having a willingness and a camera is not enough to be a good influencer. People demand creatives. And this is what will define the quality of advertising in the near future.
