MODERNSPEAK would like to engage with you on an influencer campaign aimed at Albertans who are moving homes or thinking about moving homes and are looking to set up utility services with Direct Energy. Our strategic approach involves partnering with influential content creators who boast a substantial following in Alberta, specifically within the lifestyle, DIY, finance, and education niches. Vetting and sourcing the right influencers who resonate with your target audience and align with Direct Energy's values is key to the campaign's success.

Here's an overview of our vetting process:

  1. Thorough Research: Our team will conduct extensive research using Upfluence and additional platforms and social media analytics tools to identify influencers with a sizable Alberta following.
  2. Audience Analysis: We will conduct an in-depth analysis of shortlisted influencers' audience demographics to ensure their followers align with Direct Energy's target audience.
  3. Content Evaluation: A careful review of creators' content will be conducted to assess their expertise in lifestyle, DIY, finance, and education. We will look for influencers who can provide valuable insights and guidance during the moving process.
  4. Brand Alignment: We will assess how well influencers' personal brand aligns with Direct Energy's values and messaging, ensuring a genuine interest in home-related topics.
  5. Engagement Assessment: The influencers' engagement rates, comments, and interaction with followers will be evaluated to gauge their ability to create meaningful connections within the Alberta community.

With this vetting process, we will select a diverse group of influencers who possess a strong presence in Alberta and expertise in relevant niches. These creators will bring authenticity, credibility, and a genuine passion for assisting Albertans with their home-moving journey and utility service setup.

Our objective is to establish Direct Energy as a trusted partner during this significant life transition. By harnessing the power of Alberta-based influencers and their dedicated following, we will create an influential campaign that not only promotes Direct Energy's services but also resonates with our target audience.

Creator Niches:

  • Lifestyle
  • Real Estate
  • DIY
  • Finance
  • Interior Design/Home Builders

Content Suggestions:

Home Buying Advice:

Example: The Hidden Costs of Home Ownership

Deliverables: IGTV session. The influencer can host an IGTV session or Reel discussing the less obvious costs of home ownership, particularly the cost of utilities. They can highlight how choosing Direct Energy as your utility provider can result in savings thanks to their energy-efficient plans and programs, helping new homeowners manage their budgets better. This can include explaining different types of energy plans, understanding your usage, how to read your energy bill, and tips for choosing a reliable utility provider like Direct Energy.

Energy Efficiency:

Example: Boost Your Home's Value with Energy-Efficient Upgrades

Deliverables: IG Post. The influencer could create a post featuring a home they've sold, upgraded with energy-efficient features like smart thermostats, LED lighting, and improved insulation. They could discuss how Direct Energy provides tools and resources to support such improvements, and the potential increase in property value from making these upgrades.

Money Tips:

Example: The Smarter Way to Save Money When Moving Homes

Deliverables: IG Reel. A finance influencer creates a reel outlining ways to save money during the moving process. It can highlight the potential energy cost savings by choosing Direct Energy as the utility provider, including exclusive moving packages, energy efficiency, and usage tracking services. The post can also discuss the importance of budgeting and planning expenses while moving, and how switching to energy-efficient options can contribute to significant savings in the long run.


Example: DIY Energy-Efficient Home Makeover with Direct Energy.

Deliverables: Series of IG posts or reels. A DIY influencer can create content showing simple and budget-friendly home improvements to make a new house more energy-efficient. This might include installing LED lights, sealing windows and doors, insulating the attic, and using smart thermostats. Throughout the posts, the influencer can highlight Direct Energy's role in providing useful resources, tools, and incentives for such initiatives, driving home the point that everyone can take steps to create an energy-efficient home.

Creator Co. is the exact program we’ve been looking for as content creators. Having access to our own room and vehicle to be able to roam and capture content on our own terms is fundamental in creating meaningful and purposeful content. The team behind the program was thoughtful, fun, caring and extremely insightful. I would 100 per cent recommend this format to other tourism agencies looking to promote their destination. Can’t wait to come back!”


Victoria’s fun humour and creativity went to a whole new level with this collaboration. She captured the soul of our customer in an entertaining but also appropriate manner, displaying the product in an effective way while embracing the “extra” levels our customers go to for their pets.

"In addition to helping facilitate curated content about our community by influencers, ModernSpeak provided great value by generating interest from several mainstream news media sources, including CBC radio and the Red Deer Advocate. We appreciate the opportunity to have generated this publicity, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them."


"Kristyn changed my life. She saw potential in my work, and took a chance on me. She accessed my value, and helped guide me through the new and exciting field of content creation. Since we started our partnership, I was able to work with brands that I could only dream of, and have peace of mind that she was ALWAYS fighting for my worth and success. Kristyn is special. A friend. She sees me as a human, and always puts me first. I can confidently say that I would not be where I am today without her long standing and continuous mentorship."


"MODERNSPEAK has an incredibly unique and fine-tuned ability to uplift both their clients' and creators' goals and needs. Their competency in finding the perfect fit between creator and client allows their partnerships to be highly fruitful. We were so pleased to work with Erica from MODERNSPEAK for our summer collaboration. She was swift in relaying everything we needed to work efficiently, and never hesitated to be a pillar in our partnership with the client. Her ability to be concise and detailed made us the most well prepared for our collaboration, and Erica gave us the creative freedom to be authentic to ourselves. We hope to work with MODERNSPEAK again in the future! Their understanding of creators' minds made them an amazing team to collaborate with."

“Working with Modernspeak was a big investment for us that really paid off. We were able to secure 12 different media placements leading up to our holiday gifting season, one Gift Guide alone generated over 3000 website visits. Our web media placements continue to pay dividends. As a start-up company, we could not have done this without the professional, strategic approach of the Modernspeak team. We will definitely be working with them again.”


"Working with Modernspeak over the last year has been a dream! My income has increased tremendously, the projects have been on brand and very enjoyable, and the process has been seamless. The women behind Modernspeak are absolute weapons and I am grateful to have them as my (not so) secret weapon."
