Questions I covered:

  • How did David get his start in the gaming industry and what led him to the influencer space?
  • How does gaming intersect with the influencer space?
  • What makes good influencer content? What do influencers care about?
  • How do you find the right influencer? Why is this so important?
  • How does David influencer technology company (Carro) work?
  • What are some examples of brands that are great case studies to look towards for inspiration?


  • Influencers bring a human aspect to business strategy and marketing. They are able to tell a brand what they would and wouldn’t do as a consumer, what their audience might like or dislike and what motivates them. Once a brand takes the time to fully understand the type of person they are working with, it is easier to benefit from their influence.
  • A social influencer is more than happy to promote a product that they love. Most influencers want to promote something they believe in, because it makes the promotion authentic and provides a better experience for their social fans and followers. Some influencers will even promote a brand they love for free! As opposed to getting paid to promote a brand they aren’t personally invested in.
  • Uncover how influencers interact with and view brands that need influencer promotion. David is developing an Influencer technology platform to help brands and influencers connect and find products. There are plenty of features that will be added in the upcoming months. This is something to keep an eye out for on the horizon.
