Our Story

We discovered the  power of influencer marketing in 2007—when Twitter was the darling of SXSW and Instagram wasn’t even an idea. At a digital media startup, we launched some of the earliest influencer campaigns  connecting Fortune 100 brands with star bloggers and their super-engaged audiences.

We didn’t know it at the time, but we were inventing a powerful new way to market products and ideas.

In 2013, we launched Collectively with a single vision—to offer brand marketers a more successful way to communicate through influential voices on social media.

Today, with offices in San Francisco and New York, a global client list, and a bookcase full of awards, we're continuing to define one of the fastest growing, rapidly evolving marketing practices of our time.

Data, or it didn’t happen.

Data fuels every aspect of our work. It tells us what’s working, and what’s not. It sparks new ideas. With every campaign, it makes us smarter.
