Authenticity questionable with paid influencers
Influencers are no longer promoting products for free; many influencers with large followings will do their promotions only with a fee, writes Rachel Thexton.

Use insights to identify potential new audiences
Marketers should review the insights uncovered by consumer engagement with their brands across social, digital and in stores to identify behavioral trends that could indicate growth areas outside their core audience, writes Melinda Han Williams. Look for crossover interests among audiences, such as particular sports, and experiment with campaigns to see whether new messaging resonates and drives engagement, she suggests.
