The Real Need for Messaging as a Service (MaaS)

Posted by Larry Kenigsberg on Nov 7, 2021 2:40:05 PM

B2B: Eight Ways to Successfully Market to Influencers

Posted by Larry Kenigsberg on Jun 2, 2021 2:16:00 PM

Recent research indicates that influencer marketing can generate 11 times greater ROI than more traditional strategies. Unlike conventional tactics that push a message in front of sometimes reluctant audiences, influencer marketing delivers your message via credible, authoritative experts to audiences who trust their content over that from brands.
