Welcome to Brand Meet Creator Podcast, with Harley Jordan & Sonia Elyss (your Internet Cheerleader). A place where we pull back the curtain of what it means to be all-in on social media.

After hours of back and forth voice notes discussing the ins and outs of our own projects, we were sick of the amount of misinformation and disconnection between brands and creators. The only way to solve it, was to take it on ourselves.

Sonia Elyss, a modern marketing consultant and #internetcheerleader with 15 years of experience in the brand marketing space who has cast thousands of influencers using millions of dollars of budget over her career.

Harley Jordan, a creator coach and influencer agency owner who helps creators side step the 9-5 drag and leverage their social media to kickstart the career they want.

As your hosts, we discard the filters to discuss news, insider tips and predictions for the world of influencer marketing. We look at every scenario through the eyes of the Brand and the Creator to bring you perspectives and insights from all angles — straight from the mouths and minds of two experts in the space.

So pull up a chair and grab a notebook … it's time to shed some light on this industry.

    Episode 101: Is Affiliate Marketing To Blame For Issues At Parade (Underwear)?

    Parade (underwear) was recently sold in a dramatic twist of events. As an ambassador and champion of how they have structured their affiliate partnerships, Harley takes us behind the scenes on one of her favorite brands to work with in the past few years. While the affiliate strategy Parade employed was lucrative and successful for many Creators, could it be part of the reason the brand was struggling with profitability?
    Sonia and Harley dissect the positives and negatives surrounding the Parade affiliate strategy and discuss their thoughts on how brands can be more successful in their affiliate programs.

    Episode 99: Reality of Transitioning Affiliates to Paid Partnerships + Should you be on Tiktok Shops (with Sonia Elyss)

    Episode 99: Reality of Transitioning Affiliates to Paid Partnerships + Should you be on Tiktok Shops (with Sonia Elyss)

    This episode is a wild ride: Sonia and Harley take on a couple nuanced topics where Brands and Creators tend to sit on different sides of the argument. Who should be using Tiktok Shops (regardless of the fact that you are signing away your usage rights)? Can you avoid a platform because you don't stand behind their ethics? What should brands expect from their affiliates? and how can you craft an indisputable argument to transition from commission-based pay to payment per post? 
    Who are you siding with??

You need this podcast in your life

Since listening to this podcast my content has grown and expanded more than I imagined it could. Great for those new or seasoned in the creator/influencer space. Sonia and Harley provide insider tips, new ways to think of things, and push you towards bigger and better content/brand partnerships. I love that they don’t always have the same opinion and honestly, I could listen to them talking about how paint on a wall dries. The banter, topics, and guests are all so engaging and inspiring. Okay, I think I’m done gushing about this podcast? Just, listen to it. You’ll thank me.
