Episode Info: In this episode, Deividas and Jure catch up for the first time since Jure’s visit to Lithuania.Jure, the CEO of WeScale and all-around expert in influencer marketing and eCommerce scaling, first reached out to Deividas in 2019 with some advice on scaling his business. And now, he’s back to talk about all things influencer marketing, how he got his start, eCommerce scaling, and more.When Jure first got his start in digital marketing, around 6 years ago, it was a completely different scene. Back then, he was just trying to learn digital marketing, spending up to $22 a day, and getting little to no mobile conversions (because sites weren’t even optimized for mobile back then!).Now, Jure shares his experience with scaling up from $0 to $50 million in just under 4 years.He talks about the process behind the secrets of his success: influencer marketing and localization.Jure also explains his secret sauce for working with influencers - the content creation process, and how his approach to influencers’ content has changed since then. He realized that in terms of content creation, if the influencers created the content themselves, the agency could start using it for ads.He explains how he went all-in on user-generated content, and even decreased the budget for in-house production.This move, as he found out, was well worth the ROI...So, he started sending influencers the products and told them what kind of content they needed.

From there, he translated all the landing pages, reached Germany, and that’s when he started scaling quickly…Only to encounter even more issues in Germany.People weren’t used to buying products via cash-on-delivery (COD) there and would return a lot of the products delivered. Jure learned that he had to handle unexpected challenges while scaling on the go.Jure also discusses his experience with other sides of scaling up. Including outsourcing, logistics,  localization, and going glocal - global with a local approach.He also talks about putting out fires as an agency-owner, and how he’s had to react qui...
