New Business and Marketing
Our client relations team works tirelessly to turn around customized proposals to match our clients’ goals and KPIs. They also LOVE chatting on the phone and meeting face to face, so please don’t hesitate to reach out for a quick brainstorm or touch base.
Innovation and Insights
Our client journey starts with sales collateral, evolves into a proposal and ends with a wrap-up report and hopefully a case study. The Innovation and Insights team sees that process through from start to finish, providing a terrific level of continuity that helps our clients to feel like the rock stars they are.
These folks are quite literally the wind beneath our wings, making sure our campaigns run smoothly and seeing through every project from start to finish.
Quality Assurance and Compliance
Did you know that we review EVERY SINGLE PIECE of content that our influencers create? It’s true! We check for FTC compliance, brand accuracy and adherence to our guidelines. Here are the bleary-eyed (yet still gorgeous!) folks who make that happen.
Influencer and Community Management
The Sway is our highly-engaged community of 100,000+ influencers. Supporting, educating, encouraging and recruiting from a network that is now approaching 100,000 takes a lot of creativity and work. Here is the team that makes that happen.
It’s not all sexy campaign work around here. We also have to pay the bills, cash the checks and make sure our employees are taken care of and supported.
