Dreamers & Doers episode 4 with influencer marketing expert Nik Speller

I’ve followed Nik on social media for a year or so and he talks and writes a lot about influencer marketing, in particular the issues around social media fraud – so people buying fake followers and using bots to artificially create engagement on their content and posts.

Over the last year, I’ve run a number of events and workshops about influencer marketing. Whether I’m speaking to brands and businesses, PRs and marketers, or bloggers and influencers, the topic of social media fraud and influencer marketing ethics comes up time and time again.

Nik’s worked specifically in influencer marketing for five years and is really opinionated when it comes to some of the issues in the industry, so I wanted to speak to him to get his thoughts and insights into the matter.
