    Is Clubhouse the only social media platform that prioritizes conversation over content?
    Brian Fanzo, Digital Futurist at iSocialFanz, says that Clubhouse is a unique platform that could create a type of dialogue never seen before on social media.
    As an invite-only, audio-only platform, Clubhouse focuses on real conversations and a new style of networking. Unlike other social media platforms, it’s not all about creating consistent content. Instead, Clubhouse provides intimate spaces to connect and share ideas.
    As Brian says in this podcast episode, Clubhouse is all about authenticity, which is much harder to fake than on other platforms.
    After this episode, we’re continuing the Clubhouse discussion – on Clubhouse itself!

    Is the letter “r” the only difference between "influence" and "influencer," or is there more to it than that?
    Jason Falls, Director of Digital Strategy at Cornett, states that when you talk about influence, it’s not about the channel, the influencer, or even the person. It’s not a noun, it’s a verb. So, when you’re talking about influence, you’re talking about your strategic purpose. As Jason said in this episode of the podcast, “you want to influence an audience to take action.”
    Understanding the difference between influence and influencer is so important. In this episode, Jason reveals whether it’s more beneficial to have a popular influencer promote your brand vs. someone who talks passionately about your brand to a smaller audience. We also dig into why he prefers the term "influence marketing" over "influencer marketing" and some common misconceptions around influencer marketing.
    In This Episode:
    08:59 – How influence shifts the perspective to the action rather than the channel 12:02 – Why we often make the mistake of relying on influencers rather than influence 15:18 – Why people tend to be skeptical of influencers and their authenticity 18:52 – What makes influencer marketing work 21:01 – How to find the sweet spot when searching for the right influencer for your brand 23:05 – Why it’s better to have fewer influencers who you have a relationship with vs. many influencers 29:53 – Who should be responsible for influencer marketing within an organization 31:38 – The pros and cons of asking an influencer to be category exclusive 38:01 – How social pros can use the three most important words in influence marketing to their benefit Resources:
