Influencer Marketing

Short Overview

Influencer Marketing, which was once a traditional communication and small-scale promotion tool, is now a rapidly growing area in the field of communication and sales, and is considered by many businesses as the new way of selling goods and services.

The obvious importance it has for a business, both in promoting products and boosting sales, as well as building the brand, creates the need for a mechanism to manage and control this function, which businesses are constantly investing more in. The program aims to prepare executives to integrate this tool dynamically into their strategy and to be able to manage the financial and communication results it can provide.

On the other hand, for professional influencers, the program will cover the types of cooperation offered with companies and organizations, the existing and emerging ways of engagement with a brand and its products, the dual functions they are called upon to perform as well as their goals that they must achieve both for themselves and for the companies they collaborate with.

This specific program has been designed to offer participants applied knowledge based on scientific research, study of good practices, and utilization of tools in managing both their individual brand as influencers as well as companies they collaborate with.

Learning Goals
The goal of this program is to provide participants with the appropriate cognitive tools (e.g. Influencer Marketing principles) and practical skills (e.g. ways of collaborating with businesses/influencers) so that they can design and shape communication, development, and profitability strategies. Consequently, after completing the program, participants will be able to:
  • Contribute to the effective management of relationships with companies/influencers
  • Specify the framework of the operation of influence marketing and integrate it into the broader communication and marketing ecosystem.
  • Achieve results in the most efficient way
