Interview with Christian Brown from Glewee The Try Hards

With over $8 billion a year spent on influencer marketing, why not tap into a market which seemed so untapped? Seeing exponential growth and a lack of security, organization, and structure within the marketplace, Christian Brown wanted to build a platform that solves all these issues. “Glewew is now in our Web + iOS Application pre-launch phase. Focused primarily on executing marketing tactics in order to bridge the gap between brands and digital content creators. With a small team, they wear many different hats and have learned the importance of teamwork, versatility, and late many nights on slack (a notification noise that now wakes me up from any degree of sleep).” Outside of work Christian is an avid reader, writer, film watcher, and social media aficionado. Having years of experience with social media management, marketing, and brand development I have been around the world and back working with friends and colleagues who have grown exponentially in the influencer space while having a tremendous amount of fun along the way.
