Orlando, Florida, May 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IZEA Worldwide, Inc.

In a session titled The Past, Present and Future of Influencer Marketing, Murphy will lead an in-depth discussion sharing a look back at the evolution of influencer marketing—supported by more than 16 years of transaction data and expertise—and will look at how the discipline is expected to grow even further in 2023 and beyond. Conference attendees will learn valuable insights on the benefits of working with micro-influencers, consumers’ desire for personalization in marketing, and the challenges and opportunities presented by using A.I. and automation tools in the social media landscape.
