Influencer marketing was on the radar of almost every marketer in 2017. What was once considered to be a trend has become an important part of nearly 90% of marketers’ strategies. That’s why we have been hard at work and improving our product in order to make the influencer marketing process run smoother for hundreds of brands.

We will always be committed to this mission and promise to continually invest in new technology that makes this possible.

We’d like to thank all of our customers and the thousands of creative influencers for their commitment by taking a look back on amazing campaigns that they ran over the course of this year.
