Come together with publishing colleagues online to dive into how to create effective influencer campaigns in publishing.

Book influencers have been around for years, continuing to flex, find followers, and build their niche as new social platforms have entered the scene. Meanwhile, for publishers, working with bookish content creators is now a core part of your campaigns, whether fiction or specialist.


With this explosion of activity on both sides, what is it that makes an influencer campaign stand out from the crowd? Where can you build the most buzz: Bookstagram, BookTok or X? And how do you build lasting, collaborative relationships that deliver compelling content readers love – and, crucially, convert to sales?


Join us online on Wednesday 13th November, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. GMT to hear from an influencer, marketing expert, and platform analyst – and BookMachine’s very own TikTok expert, Gemma Rostill – as they discuss the key ingredients for standing out in a crowded market, the importance of collaboration, and the impact of influencers on brand awareness, marketing and sales.


Drawing on their expertise in building their own community – from working on integrated campaigns, or analysing wider consumer trends – our speakers will shed light on what powers effective influencer strategies and campaigns.
