Influencers 2.0: How Retailers Can Measure Success

Five years ago, a Forrester study found that only 18% of consumers trusted influencers, which still included celebrities. That number has been turned in its head, as consumers now trust influencers over friends and family at a rate of two to one – and seven to one over celebrities – for information on making a purchase.
In this panel, Karen Bellin, Head of Analytics at Mirum, will dissect the key components of retail influencer measurement and show you how to create a plan that transforms your retail influencer programs.
