Herbfluence is clearing the haze around influencer marketing.
The Virginia Beach-based company solves a problem that is a result of strict advertising laws.

In comes Herbfluence.
“These digital platforms have extremely limited advertising opportunities,” Founder and CEO Tyler Knight told Inno. “Social media influencers have become a main way for brands to promote their products and services to their immediate followers.”
