In the same year that our agency president George Potts was born – 1971, Ray Tomlinson sent the very first email. His technology set the stage for digital marketing. Since then, we witnessed the introduction of search engine advertising and digital display in the 1990s, social media promotion and marketing automation in the late 2000s, and the meteoric rise of digital marketing overall in the 2010s thanks to the rapid adoption and proliferation of devices used to access digital media.
Constituencies and customers are now highly dependent on digital devices and platforms in their daily lives. Starting in 2015, US consumers spend more time in digital and social media apps than watching television. And while the digital ecosystem is complex, the opportunity to realize tremendous promotional communication efficiency and effectiveness was never greater than today.

The Pew Internet & American Life project describes Content Creation as “the material people contribute to the online world.” In the 2010s, the impact of content marketing for commercial purposes was demonstrated by Coca-Cola, GE and Red Bull. Its rise in the issue/political realm is equally impressive from the 2010 Arab Spring through to the 2016 US Presidential election. Content strategy is a cornerstone of every successful campaign today.
Whether it is paid advertising, organic publishing or website development, Fifth Influence is adept at content creation that champions your agenda and moves the needle in your desired direction.
Social influence occurs when a person's emotions, opinions or behaviors are affected by others. A Social Media Influencer is a user on social media who has established credibility in a specific industry or on a specific issue.
A social media influencer has access to a large audience and can persuade others by virtue of their authenticity and reach. Using social media listening platforms and influencer identification tools, Fifth Influence will help you identify the most appropriate influencers to engage for your campaign and develop a program to market to, through and with them, increasing awareness and driving advocacy.
A subset of influencer programs but highly effective and efficient, employee advocacy is the promotion of a company and its agenda by employees who share their support for the company on their social networks. Our goal at Fifth Influence is to inform, educate and engage your workforce allowing them to become strong social media employee advocates.
Utilizing the internet and social media platforms in-particular provides immediate observations and insight.
