AnyMind Times: Helping enterprises go D2C, an online store for influencer merch, unboxing influencer recommendations, and more!

Your monthly round-up of what happened at AnyMind Group - July 2021 edition

We’re always looking at more and more ways to help marketers and businesses, publishers, and of course, influencers, to unlock new value in what they do. We’ve got a hattrick of case studies, some new leadership appointments, and expert insights across running a business, mobile marketing in Thailand and tackling the Cambodian market.

The past month also saw the launch of D2C for Enterprise, an offering that provides businesses of all sizes with various tools and resources to accelerate e-commerce and D2C growth.

Additionally, in a bid to help influencers showcase their own brand and products, we launched PopBox, an online retail store for influencer products, in Thailand and Japan, with further planned launches across Asia coming in the year ahead.
