You create great content for your audience. How does your audience feel about sponsored content?

I feel sponsored content is needed, because at the end of the day you're still delivering a service and need to cover costs of drawing equipment etc. Idees Vol Vrees fans don't really mind. It's like watching your favourite TV show. You don't really mind ad breaks, and it makes the show possible.

We know it takes considerable time to create good content, how long did the process take you from concept to sharing it on your channels?

An Idees Vol Vrees illustration from concept phase to finished product takes me about 2 hours. Obviously depending on the concept, punchlines, amount of characters and so forth.

How did your audience respond to the Showmax content?

My audience did not know anything about Showmax before the campaign, but they loved the Showmax content on Idees Vol Vrees. Thousands of likes and shares.

Can you give us some tips for brands when creating content with influencers?

At the end of the day, content is king. Keep it fresh and original. Give the people something worth sharing.
