Pitchfork Partners announces specialised influencer marketing division

Pitchfork Partners, a leading new-age communication strategy consultancy, has launched a specialised influencer marketing division. It is led by Sangya Lakhanpal, an Instagram influencer with a massive follower base. She is an experienced influence marketer with both back-end and front-end knowledge of the industry. 

Through this new service, Pitchfork Partners will concentrate on content and its amplification through tools like SEO in its effort to provide holistic solutions to brands and other agencies via a B2B model. The service has been pilot-tested for a year. The services will span all relevant platforms, from Instagram to YouTube and others.

Influencer marketing is maturing rapidly as an industry and is expected to grow to $16.4 billion globally in 2022. Pitchfork Partners aims to simplify and streamline the demand and supply of relevant influencers for brand campaigns along with strategic brand reputation management, thus providing holistic solutions to raise brand sentiment, awareness and engagement.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, with people confined to their homes, there was a heightened consumption of digital content and e-commerce. The early apprehensions around influencer marketing were soothed during this time as the industry flourished on the back of authentic and relatable influencer content. Brands engaging with them witnessed a significant increase in loyalty and engagement in comparison to traditional branded content. This led to more than 75% of brand marketers committing to a dedicated budget for influencer marketing in 2022. This also led to many new influencer marketing agencies and others extending their service offerings with influencer marketing. 

Pitchfork Partners believes that, with this positive shift in the marketing industry and media spends, it needs to broaden its offering to be able to cater to increasing influencer marketing demands of brands and other agencies.
