It feels like everyone these days wants to get sponsored and tap into the world of influencer marketing, but today’s guest was one of the first to explore the potential of influencer marketing when she started her agency nearly 7 years ago.

Lindsey Heppner is the founder and CEO of VAMPPED., the leading creative and talent management agency based in Los Angeles. After facing a near death experience, Lindsey reevaluated everything in her life, and found herself spearheading the influencer movement. Now, she manages talent from micro-influencers to some of the biggest names in social media right now, and has worked with mega brands like Bumble, Sugar Bear Hair, PacSun, and many more. 

This conversation was such a blast to record, and just talking with Lindsey got my creative juices flowing. Press play to hear why micro-influencers are brands’ secret weapons and how to make a ton of noise when you need to get scrappy and market like a disruptor.
