When used right, influencers can 7x your revenue.

Ashton Marshall, Affiliate Manager of Mindful Health, joins the POD to talk about the differences as well as the benefits of influencer marketing and working with creators.

Mindful Health focuses on internal and external wellness, acquiring brands to promote and achieve their mission.

In the podcast, Ashton not only discusses the benefits of influencers but also the benefits of a good affiliate strategy.

Affiliate and Influencers are two different things that are often confused, but affiliate generally encompasses email and traffic.

It is a lot easier to gauge specific traffic from affiliates, rather than through using influencers, and understand how much revenue can be generated.

But when you combine spend with gut and analytics, influencer marketing can be much more lucrative than affiliate marketing sometimes.

Influencer Marketing has shown to be a necessary strategy for Mindful Health.

In the past, Ashton had little success working with influencers to grow the brand, especially Instagram.

Using Trend has helped Ashton and Mindful Health with achieving more success with influencer marketing.

Trend pre-vets influencers for brands. Pre-vetted influencers on Trend create better content and have more to offer to brands. This was key in Ashton's success with Trend.

It is also important to understand and know your audience so that you can properly get the message across to them.

Stay tuned as Ashton shares his experience as an affiliate manager and working with influencers for Mindful Health and how it has helped the brand grow
