ORLANDO, Fla., April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IZEA Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: IZEA), the premier provider of technology, data, and services for the Creator Economy, announced today that Hoozu, its Australia influencer marketing agency, was recognized as Highly Commended in the Best Influencer Strategy category at the Mumbrella CommsCon Awards in Sydney.

Hoozu worked with regional client RYOBI, a power tools and equipment brand, on a campaign called Em'Power'ing People to Shape the Space They Live In. In the campaign, creators showed how they improve their living spaces with the help of RYOBI products.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised in the Best Influencer Strategy category at the prestigious Mumbrella CommsCon Awards,” said Natalie Giddings, CEO of Hoozu. “Our collaboration with RYOBI illustrates the power of strategic influencer marketing and our commitment to creating impactful and innovative campaigns that resonate with audiences and drive tangible results for our clients.
