(NASDAQ: IZEA), the premier provider of influencer marketing technology, data, and services for the world’s leading brands, today announced it has launched IZEA Flex, its next-generation, comprehensive influencer marketing platform built for brands and agencies of all sizes.
First announced during IZEA’s “SUPERCHANGED” streaming event, IZEA Flex is a data-centric suite of marketing tools that allow users to track, customize and export relevant data, from creator profiles to campaign metrics. The tools in IZEA Flex are powerful on their own but, when tied together, empower marketers to manage and optimize influencer marketing campaigns and strategies at an enterprise level.
“The influencer marketing industry has changed and so have the needs of our customers,” said Ted Murphy, Founder and CEO of IZEA. “The macroeconomic environment has driven marketers to emphasize measurement of effectiveness of campaigns and return on influencer marketing investment. Flex allows marketers to directly track the impact on sales down to the product and customer level by integrating with their existing martech stack. We are meeting the unique needs of brands and agencies while maintaining a price point that provides tremendous value for marketers.”
Flex Core Toolset
