With almost every other brand incorporating influencers in their online strategies, marketers must get creative with their influencer marketing campaigns.

Instead of simply collaborating with influencers to create branded content, marketers can try tactics like giving influencers more control over content creation and collaborating with a number of influencers at one time.
