by Bulldog Reporter | Mar 4, 2019
The firm’s Most Loved Brands rankings was released earlier in February based on net sentiment, and over the next several weeks, Engagement Labs will announce awards for the highest scoring brands in each of the remaining TotalSocial categories. The brands that were most successful with everyday influencers are those with the highest online and offline influence scores in 2018.
“Effective activation of the everyday influencers can drive business success, and brands that gain the attention of consumer influencers tend to see improved short-term sales and long-term brand equity,” said Ed Keller, CEO of Engagement Labs and author of The Influentials: One American in Ten Americans tells the Other 9 How to Vote, Where to Eat, and What to Buy, in a news release. “Everyday influencers are not celebrities and YouTube stars.
