Tortoise vs. Hare: An Influencer Marketing Case Study

You know the story. There’s a score to settle between the tortoise and the hare. The hare is haphazard and in a big hurry. The tortoise is methodical and willing to pace himself. If influencer marketing were a race, my money would be on the tortoise. Of course, influencer marketing’s a strategy, not a race. Even still, hare’s need not apply. Word on the street is, in their haste, hares implement several ill-advised tactics, including

  • leaving spammy blog comments (“Great post, but have you seen mine?“)
  • tagging popular profiles randomly (“Hey, @You! Wanna help me sell myself?”)
  • blasting the masses with identical text (reproducing content like, well, rabbits) and
  • popping up with pitches out of the blue.
As you may know, tortoises commit to the long-haul instead. Their approach is much more suited to influencer marketing.

My son was going to gain points – and hopefully some kickbacks he could really enjoy – by telling the Easter Bunny about this great resource he’d found. Influencer strategy #1: Make the Bunny’s job easier by knowing what he needs and helping him find it.
