An influencer is a social media personality who has built a reputation and following for their expertise on a specific topic.
Joe Floww focuses on fashion. He has more than 70K followers on Instagram. On TikTok, he has amassed 260K followers and 12 million likes. Joe, who creates engaging social media videos for brands like Levi’s, Doc Martens, and ASOS, told us he “uses his love for fashion and style to encourage others to be themselves and wear what they want.” (Is your brand on TikTok yet?

A Metaverse professional is highly knowledgeable about virtual reality, a space where users can not only interact with a computer-generated environment but also with other users.
Fortnite is one of the most successful online games ever made. The creators are looking to the future: They’ve turned the world of Fortnite into a Metaverse with live concerts from superstars such as Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish.
Daily rate: $700 — $5,000+ (The rate is wide-ranging because you may need to account for the cost of renting a studio to design the deliverable.)
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR)
A Virtual Reality professional uses immersive experiences to replace a real-life environment with a simulated one. On the other hand, an Augmented Reality professional augments your surroundings by adding digital elements to a live view, often by using a smartphone camera.
Meta spearheaded an immersive VR experience in collaboration with The International Paralympics Committee and Phoria.
“Paralympics RAW takes the stories of five Paralympic athletes and the emotions that define the most important moments of their life,” Jay Morgan, a creative director at Meta’s Creative Shop, told us. “The power of VR for this story came from the notion of being able to translate physical human emotions into a virtual experience. And VR allows us to do that in a way that hasn’t been possible before. When you watch a classic film on either TV, your phone, or the web, it’s very 2D. There are some emotions you’ll get because storytelling has that sort of ability, but within VR, it’s indistinguishable from the real world.”
Snapchat uses AR to enhance its user experience all the time: there are more than one million lenses on the app, and more than 75 percent of its users interact with AR every day. In 2020, they launched Local Lenses, making it possible to augment larger areas, including city blocks. Snapchat’s first Local Lens was “City Painter” on London’s Carnaby Street, allowing Snapchatters to “join a persistent, shared AR world built right on top of the physical one, and collaborate to paint the space around them,” according to this press release.

On-camera talent is an actor or on-screen performer who can deliver a performance to communicate a specific narrative.
Aubree Dumas, on-camera talent, is a “creative and forward-thinking storyteller with a demonstrated track record of fostering innovation through producing and creating original content.” She creates digital content on social media under the handle “Where Aubree Goes.” In one of her series called “Iconic Eats,” she takes audiences to discover new places, foods, and experiences in Atlanta, Georgia.

A wardrobe stylist is a fashion consultant who selects clothing for a project or an event. You may need to hire a stylist to dress your talent in something cozy for a 30-second holiday-themed video ad or an attention-grabbing outfit for a music video. A stylist will make sure the clothes express your brand in just the way you want.
Here’s a video mobile apps developer and Storyhunter client Lightricks created showcasing how to use one of their apps to edit a fashion video. It’s an instance where a wardrobe stylist could come in handy.
