Influencers who champion supplement and functional food products to their followers give those brands great opportunity for exposure to a welcoming audience, but companies must be selective when choosing influencers—yes, more than one—who will speak about their offerings, notes Amy Summers, owner and president, Pitch Publicity. In this podcast with Sandy Almendarez, content director, Informa Health & Nutrition, Summers covers best practices when using influencers, including:

  • An “assessment test” to ensure an influencer is the right fit for a brand

  • The importance of providing feedback and guidance to influencers

  • Using many influencers and asking them to distribute messages on various outlets to ensure a far reach.

Summers will be speaking at SupplySide East in Secaucus, New Jersey, on “Selecting a Spokesperson for your Supplement,” on April 21 at noon.
