The last name of the co-founder of Find Your Influence in the second and fourth paragraphs should be Vieira (instead of Vieiera).
The corrected release reads:
INTRODUCING FIND YOUR INFLUENCE
New platform unlocks the power of influencer marketing for businesses of all sizes
In today’s crowded media space, engaging with online influencers has never been more appealing. With stronger, authentic and independent voices, advertisers long to engage with these powerful online personalities to help build awareness and shape consumer preferences. Yet the market desperately needs a solution to aid in reaching those influencers. Enter Find Your Influence (FYI), a cloud-based, online platform that does just that: seamlessly connects brands and businesses with online influencers.
“We built FYI on a simple premise,” said Jamie Reardon Sims, who co-founded FYI with Cristine Vieira after working together on influencer campaigns. “Influencers generate great content about products, services and websites they love, and should be financially rewarded for it by brands. It’s really best case scenario for both parties.”
FYI streamlines the campaign management process. Users are guided on how to identify, create, launch, manage and monitor successful influencer campaigns. Even better, each aspect of a campaign, including payment and results, is managed from start to finish within the platform.
“As former marketers, we know all too well the challenges and hassles of influencer marketing,” added Vieira. “Our goal was to create a solution for advertisers, agencies and businesses of all sizes to easily execute seamless campaigns.”
Quantifying online influence has always been a bit of an enigma and FYI has started to solve that riddle. Using a propriety algorithm, the platform ranks influencers based off a variety of factors, including audience and advocacy. In closed beta since summer 2013, FYI already has more than 1,000 influencers in the growing database. Then in February 2014, FYI opened the online platform to a select group of advertisers, including notable brands in the retail, technology, and financial and small business space.
