STAGWELL MARKETING FRONTIERS
The Creator Economy is here.
Influencer marketing budgets are swelling, platforms are doubling down on creator funds and central support, and lucrative partnership opportunities are giving rise to a new economic class of professional creators. Consumers are on the hunt for more authentic connections with the brands that serve them, and creators offer vibrant, people-forward ways to reach new and old segments alike.
With the rise of the Creator Economy comes new priorities: managing brand safety and content controls, ensuring equitable influencer representation, and scaling influencer integrations across global marketing organizations.
