    Thought Leadership

    We help influencers build their audience and market themselves. We take a holistic approach to building influence and thought leadership for individuals by helping you share ideas that will help others.

    Original Content

    We use proprietary big data tools to predictively ascertain what your target audience will engage with prior to creation of content. We use these insights and our access to premium IP to build actionable strategies, create premium original programming and provide a digital ecosystem to grow and build audiences.

    Long-term, your company should be building more access to the constantly changing needs of your target audience through content. Regardless of the medium, the “spokes” can be built and removed quickly once a connection has been made. Content created for one community today can make for compelling content in the future. Pushing out to other video sites and platforms such as Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo allows for repurposing as “Top 10 Lists” or audio centric mediums later. This allows for you to take the “Cream” of the past and reconstruct it safely under your home brand.

    Original content

    “My particular peeve is pre-roll. I hate it. What is even worse is that I know the people who are making it know that I’m going to hate it. Why do I know that? Because they tell me how long I am going to have to endure it — 30 seconds, 20 seconds, 15 seconds. You only have to watch this crap for another 10 seconds and then you are going to get to the content that you really wanted to see. That is a model of polluting content that is not sustainable.”

Case Studies

Individual Digital Branding:

Ivan Stravensky

Fake Influencer With Real Fans

We created a fake person named Ivan Stravensky on September 22, 2017 and built out his following to over 30,000 followers in six weeks with less than $300. This fake person had over 20,000 views on his second Medium blog post thanks to his Reddit post getting 900 upvotes in one night. He’s not real but a lot of his fans are.

Influencer Marketing:

Evan Goes Wild

Starting Account From Scratch

In March of 2019, we set up the social media accounts for @evangoeswildofficial for the Animal Planet show’s season one. We scheduled posts, responded to fan outreach and handled influencer outreach.

We asked animal lover influencers to post about the series to drive tune in and awareness.

Individual Digital Branding:

GameMine

SEO - Search Results

In May of 2017, every result for “gamemine” was for a video rental company in Florida rather than our client, a start-up mobile games publisher. None of these results was our client. Not even gamemine.com showed up. We deleted these (defunct) Florida company’s profiles in Crunchbase, LinkedIn, Google maps  (include arrows) and created social media channels for GameMine.

Now, when you Google GameMine, every search result is for the mobile games publisher and all of the Florida company pages are gone.

Social Media Strategies
We created social media handles and scheduled posts and ads to grow reach and engagement.
We also optimized individual team members’ socials.

Company Digital Branding:

Salt Life Beer

Micro Influencer Outreach
With limited spends, Cordurouy found and activated 35 micro-influencers per month to post about Salt Life Beer to assist with branding a new product. The campaign started in Florida and spread to other surrounding states as distribution expanded.
