Influencer Marketing is the story in 2017. D S Simon Media has been doing this for 30 years turning your experts and leaders into influencers. Communicators are twice as likely to be satisfied with their own spokesperson’s ability to help earn media than a third-party expert but say it’s harder than ever to get that coverage . We not only get your spokespeople on television through Influencer Media Tours but partner with influencers to extend their reach through YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and online media using the power of video.
