Ep. 22 – Influencer Marketing with Corbin from Three Warriors


Social media is a great way to promote your products and services and influencer marketing is just one of the ways a lot of brands these days have successfully positioned themselves in the market.  

In today’s episode, we talk to Founder and CEO of Three Warriors, Corbin Halliday, about how he has used influencers to grow his brand from a little side-hustle to now having seven full-time employees.

He also shares how he approaches influencers, the red flags to look out for, how to measure the number of sales an influencer generates, why he doesn’t like the word “influencer” and why this mindset has been key to his success and how he has gained exposure from some of the world’s most famous celebrities – without paying a cent.

About corbin

Born from a love of self-tanning, Three Warriors CEO/Founder Corbin Halliday was discouraged by the limited range of certified toxic-free and organic tan that didn’t compromise on colour. In 2014 Corbin’s health deteriorated, and a clean tanning option quickly became non-negotiable.

The Three Warriors product line was created for those who want to maintain a safe and natural looking tan whilst considering the health of their skin, our biggest organ. When sourcing the purest ingredients for the TW organic range, Corbin didn’t need to look further than his own home, Tasmania.
