Think HQ Account Coordinator Jade Delios Callanan shares her experience attending this year’s VidCon.
At VidCon 2018 it wasn’t uncommon to hear the term, ‘as an influencer…’ when someone was giving their answer to a question.
Most of the content creators or influencers on the panels had followings in the hundreds of thousands to millions, but it turns out that when it comes to using social platforms for a cause, smaller followings can have the greatest impact.
At the 'Social Media to Social Change' panel moderated by Tara Gosling, PR & Content Coordinator at JustGiving with Anna Akana, Hank Green and Caspar Lee, it kept coming back to the impact of micro influencers.
Caspar Lee, who has 7.5+ million subscribers on his YouTube channel and has recently been raising awareness about growing up with Tourette’s, said it’s those with smaller followings who can potentially have a larger impact.
“Micro influencers have bigger opportunity to make change. They have smaller communities of...Read More

Senior Account Executive Nick Edrington is our newest recruit. With extensive experience in social media marketing and copywriting, Nick shares his experiences and advice below.
You’ve spent some time overseas working in a PR agency. Did you find any significant differences between working in India and Australia?
The Indian media landscape is notably different to Australia – the print industry is still very strong, and local papers have high readership. This is partly due to the affordability and accessibility of traditional print, but also the variety of languages – there are 22 official languages across India.
I had exposure to corporate multinationals, luxury property developers and even the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as clients. Pitching stories about Australia, as an Australian in India to the Indian media was a great experience – on occasion journalists couldn’t understand my accent on the phone!
The work culture in Mumbai is interesting,...Read More

Gamers are the new fundraisers
Know an enthusiastic gamer? They’re likely to be members of Twitch, an online platform where gamers can view live streams of other gamers in action – think PewDiePie but live stream.
Well-established gamers on Twitch can support the cause of their choice by hosting a gaming marathon, where they stay online and engage with their viewers for an excessive amount of time (12 hours or more), and viewers are encouraged to donate and share the event via social media.
A plus side is if the stream is for charitable purposes, Twitch will help promote it on their homepage. In 2015, the platform raised...Read More
