The Ins and Outs of Employee Influencing

Ayanda Seboni, Group Executive Brand Marketing and Communications at PPS, joins us to discuss the ins and outs of employee influencing and her personal experience with it.

“When you have employees who are influencers, it’s almost like a pyramid. One person amplifies your message and helps you reach other audiences that you wouldn’t have ordinarily reached,” comments Ayanda.
Employee influencing is on the rise in South Africa and is an effective way to create awareness of your brand and your employees’ expertise.

Influencer marketing and paid media: a heavenly partnership

This episode is an interesting chat and informative to any marketer, PR consultant or anyone else working in the influencer marketing industry. Matan Atias talks to us about why combining paid media and influencer content works exceptionally well.

Matan is a performance driven, creative marketer that has spent the last 8 years in the digital marketing and advertising technology space. He is passionate about connecting brands and consumers in a way that is meaningful to consumers and impactful to marketers. He like to fuse creativity and sales/revenue driven strategies to deliver to business objectives.

“On average, combining influencer content with paid media, delivers 8 to 11 times more in terms of return on ad spend,” says Matan. “This is not to say that we should stop everything we do in traditional paid media, it’s a complementary product. The reason for better ROI is authenticity. People have become good at blocking ads that feel like ads. By pairing advertising with influencers, it doesn’t feel like an ad. It’s human to human communications and connection.”

James Creech on Influencer Marketing Tech

James joined us all the way from the other side of the world to record this episode. He spoke to us from his home in Los Angeles, USA. He is the co-founder and CEO of Paladin Software, an influencer marketing platform.

He talks to us about his journey into the industry, why he thought that there was a gap in the market for their software, why he thinks influencer marketing is now more important than ever and the importance of having a competent human team behind tech tools to ensure campaigns deliver good results.

“A human team behind influencer tech is essential,” said James. “We can build the best tools in the world, but they’re not going to run the campaign for you. At the end of the day you need a trusted advisor, someone who knows the space well and knows what they’re doing to run a successful influencer campaign.”

To learn more about James and Paladin, connect with him on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/jlcreech/

The State of Influencer Marketing... Jhene Nel

Jhene Nel is one of the best players in the influencer marketing game, along with her team, they continue to run greatly successful campaigns not only in South Africa but also other African countries and the US. She lets us into some insights on the industry.

“I don’t think that TikTok is the next big thing in South Africa,” says Jhene, “it’s difficult to figure out how to make it work from a South African perspective, even if brands use local content creators, there’s no way to track where there audiences are based, and thus it’s not greatly beneficial to South African brands. But there are ways to use the content that are beneficial.”
