OUR STORY

OUR SECRET SAUCE

OUR SECRET SAUCE

The beauty of MagicLinks lies in our win/win structure. Since 2015, we've created organic revenue streams for influencers whose fans trust their authenticity and recommendations. Brands know their products are in front of the right people by virtue of us connecting them with the right influencers.

Partners Who Inspire

PARTNERS WHO INSPIRE

Our vibrant and curated community is home to over 20,000 influencers (and their 150M+ millenial fans). Meanwhile our diverse partnerships (5,000 and growing) mean world-class brands trust our collaboration to grow their market share and provide reliable ROAS, every time.

Growing Our Way

A FORCE FOR GOOD

We give a lot of damns at MagicLinks. That means rolling up our sleeves and giving back to our community whenever possible, while continuing to benefit all our business relationships.

MagicLinks is a Certified B Corp, a distinction shared by only about 3,500 certified B Corporations globally. MagicLinks was one of the first influencer technology companies to join the B Corp ranks in 2020.

Looking ahead, what matters is not the certification itself, but the way we live into the spirit of B Corp through well-defined commitments, followed by actions. To our current and future partners alike, we invite you to join us in reinventing e-commerce for the conscious consumer.

OUR TEAM

We are digital video natives, driven by data, passionate about influencer community,
and committed to leaving the world a better place.

At MagicLinks, we recognize diversity as something bigger than a search term or buzzword. Diversity here is an acknowledgement that the world is made up of many different facets, that all human beings have intrinsic value and worth, and are under no obligation to be anything other than their honest selves. Diversity means recognizing that different views and experiences are as important as those we’re already familiar with. It means taking radical ownership of the things we affect as individuals and as a company - including even inherited ways of doing things which may be destructive or biased and which we must work to change. It means looking at the world and making sure we embody as many of its best qualities as we can, and striving for that as a matter of principle, not as a marketing goal we check off a list.

Diversity goes beyond what we look like, who we are, who we love or how we think. Diversity is shorthand for an integrity-driven way of operating and growing every single day, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
