And I'd like to introduce you to Emma. 00:05 Emma is an influencer you're not going to believe it. 00:08 Emma troubles the world. 00:12 And Bruns pays her to do so. 00:12 That's pretty good who wouldn't want to travel the world and be paid. 00:18 Some would argue it's the dream and then it gets to live this dream. 00:23 Because people like to see the world through her eyes. 00:27 They like to know what she likes what she doesn't. 00:30
I was one of those people and I follow them around a year ago. 00:33 And one day I'm scrolling through Instagram and then the pops up, 00:38 and she's like Hey. 00:41 This is my favorite hotel, 00:41 the same pancreas resonance hotel in London. 00:44 So I checked out, Great Hotel, 00:47 the next time I'm in London. 00:49 I'm going to stay there. 00:50 3 weeks later, scrolling down my news feed and pops up again. 00:52 She goes to the South Palace Hotel is my favorite hotel. 00:57
And that Oh, but what about OK, 01:01 we all change our minds. 01:03 Not a crime. 01:05 But then a week later, 01:05 he told me it was the cost world how's that OK? 01:09 am I see what is happening right now? 01:12 And then again, and again and again and again and again. 01:14 Can anyone tell me which is Emma's favorite hotel? 01:20 Does anyone here know? 01:24 I certainly didn't. 01:24 You know. 01:29 He's a cute picture. 01:29 I didn't believe it. 01:33 I don't think many people do, 01:35 I'm somewhat skeptical. 01:36
And why should our audience trust Emma? 01:36 And actually this type of practice why consumer trust in what influences says it's just 4%. 01:41 I want to give you a bit of context. 01:48 Four percent 35% of Americans believe in aliens, 01:50 16% in big 4 yet only 4% 01:54 of consumers. 01:57 Trust what influences say. 01:57
