Does your brand partner with influencers?
If so, you could be leaving money on the table if you don’t manage those relationships properly.
Better influencer management = better ROI for your brand.
And in this ebook, they help you find out the best approach to optimize campaigns with your specific type (or types) of influencers.
• A breakdown of the four influencer types and why you can’t manage them the same way
• Are working with celebrities really worth the price?
• How to make a micro-influencer program scale and work for you
Brainy Breakdown 🤓
How to price high-end offers
When a product costs $9.99 our lazy brain rounds down to $9 rather than up to $10. This is known as “charm pricing.”
Using charm pricing can help you to sell more everyday stuff, but it’s the wrong strategy when selling high-end items.
When buying luxury products, buyers want the item to be perceived as expensive. That’s part of the appeal.
Using round numbers and streeeeeeetching the number out by including the “.00”, like Louis Vuitton does with their handbags, positions their products as quality.

Brainy Spotlight 💡
Fear is a powerful motivator.
The best marketers know how to tap into our fears—like our fear of missing out (or FOMO)—while positioning their content as a solution to fight our fears.
This Twitter thread hook by Codie Sanchez is a great example.
The 1st line is a punch in the face. The 2nd is your lifeline.
