market

The pandemic has been an eye-opening experience for businesses worldwide as the world’s workforce and consumption has gone remote; freelancers and remote workers can save businesses money on infrastructure expenses. Additionally, the gig economy allows the use of various professionals while simultaneously letting the staff focus on more high-value tasks.

FREELANCER ECONOMY SEGMENT

Due to the changing landscape of the digital service industry, the speed of the offline freelancing migration to online has increased ($1.2 trillion in the US alone, $42 trillion worldwide in 2021) and presents an unprecedented wide open market with geometrically progressing supply and demand. 56% of companies are expected to employ global remote work in 2022, with 80% of the workforce participating in the gig economy by 2030.⁴

INFLUENCER MARKETING SEGMENT

Large brands have capitalized on the powerful outreach of influencers; paired with changing consumer preferences in digital advertising (80% of consumers buy based on influencer recommendations⁵), the industry exceeded $13 billion in 2021.⁶

While the industry is irrefutably growing, the threat of influencer fraud (experienced by 70% of brands) is becoming an even bigger problem. Fear of fraud has left large amounts of capital on the sidelines. With 86% of brands allocating budgets specifically to influencer marketing, the use of Brybe®’s platform allows brands to fully employ their influencer marketing budgets. We verify the identity and outreach capability of influencers and make everyone’s job a whole lot easier.⁷
