Here's What You Need To Know About An Influencer Marketing Network

Influencer marketing is booming. Poised to become a $5-10B industry in the next 5 years, influencer marketing is now a major consideration for the world’s biggest brands.

The Rock, Karlie Kloss, and Wiz Khalifa all use YouTube to push their work into a new realm in the form of tutorials, interviews, commentary, and vlogs.
