ABOUT US

THE COMPANY

Influencd was born from our realization that no dedicated online space existed for influencers to connect with home and design brands. After chatting with countless friends in the design community, we learned we weren’t alone in desiring such a space. We also discovered that brands and influencers alike craved guidance with their influencer marketing efforts, from finding the right partners and creating effective campaigns, to monitoring workflows and digesting analytics.

Like the design industry itself, influencer marketing is grounded in personal connections and authentic relationships. That’s why, in building a collaborative network of influencers and brands in the design community, we’ve created a platform that doesn’t replace human interactions but rather enhances them. Influencd is a high-touch service agency backed by technology.

Our recipe for success? Simply put, our extensive experience and our passion for the home and design community enables our laser focus on the needs of our industry. Authority and advocate rolled into one powerful package, we’re here to guide you from start to finish and beyond—so you can focus on your creative and business goals, and leave the backend stuff to us!
