Sinéad Carroll Biography.
After a 15 year career in Banking and Finance, in 2015 I established one of Ireland’s first dedicated agencies for Digital Influencer Marketing. Irish Blogger Agency is home to more than 500 bloggers, vloggers and social influencers. Irish Blogger Agency is a web platform that allows brands to collaborate with online influencers and social media content creators.
Since 2013 I have been immersed in digital marketing and the blogging Industry running my own Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Blog and founder of the highly successful Blogger Network called Into The West Blogger Network in 2014. I have seen first hand the power of influencers combined with the gap in the marketing for a dedicated Digital Influencer Agency and late 2015 Irish Blogger Agency was born.
Over the years I have implemented successful influencer marketing strategies and campaigns with a broad range of brands within the beauty, hospitality, retail, food, lifestyle and financial services industries. Being nominated as a finalist in the Accenture Digital Media Awards 2016 in the category Best Brand / Company Using Digital and receiving an Award in 2017 for Outstanding Contribution to Irish Blogging by the Waverley Academy has been a few of my key highlights to date.
