You're in a partnership with Influencer A that has 105,000 followers (because, well, it’s an impressive number.)

Out of 60% of those real followers, 55% of that are age groups 18-21 with the remainder being age group 25+ and within that 5% being that age group 95% of that 5% is mostly women not men, which...
