The State of Influence event: A global perspective from digital influencers on the impact of digital influence
On 14 June, digital influencers and experts from across the world will be sharing their insights and predictions for the future of influencer marketing at MediaCom and indaHash's The State of Influence event. From indaHash's global network of 250,000 digital influencers, who has a combined reach of over half a billion followers, a select group of influencers will put the spotlight on social media in a way it has never been done before.
In October 2016, indaHash became a strategic digital partner of MediaCom, who is one of the largest content and media agencies worldwide.
Are you ready for the shift in social media?
According to indaHash’s 2017 International Influencer Report, being a digital influencer is the new profession. An influencer is someone with a certain lifestyle and social status that make a living (or extra income) from their social media skills. According to the report’s research, 77% of the consumers claimed that influencers are competition for traditional media. Interestingly, the most prominent influencers mainly engage with online videos and 51% watch little or no television. For them, the most opinion-forming sources are other influencers and social media users – only 1% chose radio, 3% press, and 5% television.
Due to this important shift in the market, MediaCom and indaHash decided to host an event in Johannesburg to explain the impact of automated influencer marketing at scale on platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter.
The day will cover thought-provoking topics such as how technology is disrupting traditional career paths, the growing phenomenon of the ‘everypreneur’, digital influencers as the new broadcasters, and even an artificial intelligence demonstration. Over and above MediaCom and indaHash experts, speakers will include representatives from event partners such as Nicola Cooper & Associates, Between 10 and 5, and InJozi Digital Design.
Due to an overwhelming number of requests, additional seats have been made available to the event for media and the public.
Date: 14 June 2017
Time: 9:30am - 12:30pm
Venue: Gathere, 2nd Floor, 11 Kramer Road, Kramerville, Sandton, Johannesburg.
