87% Of TikTok Users: Instagram Reels Is “Basically The Same” (Forbes)

While TikTok deals with controversy surrounding a still-uncertain future and threats to the impending sell-off deadline,, it’s no surprise that the new release from Instagram, Reels is gaining traction and quietly slipping into TikTok’s shoes. But if there’s one thing they’ve made clear, it’s that they’re not going down without a fight: TikTok has launched a marketing partner program, a feature allowing creators to sell merchandise through the app, and a new “stitch” feature to facilitate content creation.


New Report Says B2B Influencer Marketing Still Has Massive Room For Growth (Forbes)

While brands of all kinds have found success with influencer marketing, it remains critically underused in B2B campaigns. With traditional in-person and word-of-mouth marketing reduced as a result of the pandemic, there has never been a more opportune time to incorporate influencers into B2B marketing strategy. Brands looking to seize the opportunity can look to other successful influencer campaigns for inspiration, and get involved in the community by starting a conversation.


Influencer Culture Is Changing. Who Will Influence Us Now? (Refinery 29)

Consumers left disillusioned by a lack of personality in traditional marketing are turning to new forms of influence, searching for down-to-earth figures who share their moral values. Priorities shifting from exclusive products to inclusive marketing indicate the rise of a new kind of influencer–one who values community, collaboration, and caring for your fellow human beings.
