Social Media Influencer Policy
S3 Consortium Pty Ltd, trading as StocksDigital (CAR No.433913) is a corporate authorised representative of LeMessurier Securities Pty Ltd (AFSL No. 296877) and owner of nextinvestors.com, finfeed.com, catalysthunter.com and other financial websites.
ASX listed companies seeking to raise awareness and increase their profile with investors pay a fee to use StocksDigital’s technology platform to digitally promote their story in a ASIC compliant, regulated manner.
StocksDigital’s digital promotion includes commercially engaging third party social media influencers, and our Social Media Influencer Programme forms part of our digital promotion technology.
Via this Programme we remunerate active social media users for re-tweets or posts of our content to their followers via social media.
Typically this involves either a direct payment or a donation to the Influencers charity of their choice.
All influencers must disclose that this content is paid for, and link to this policy.
All of our content and work is compliant with ASIC regulations (ASIC Regulatory Guide RG234) for promoting ASX listed financial products.
Customer Notice: https://www.nextinvestors.com/customer-notice/
