Episode 43: Elliott Clark of Apartment Bartender on Growing Your Instagram and Working with Influencers


The old news? Brands can make money off of influencer relationships on Instagram. The new news? These relationships are more than transactions. They are part of the movement your brand is creating.

The theme of T&C this year was building brands that are more than a consumer to company transaction. Elliott Clark is here to show us how he’s using his Instagram account to get people behind the movement, Apartment Bartender. In this episode, Jenna talks to Elliott about how he grew his account organically to 55,900 followers. He’ll also give us intel about how businesses should approach working with influencers so they can get an ROI and how his spirits-based Instagram has launched a new fitness movement.
