Race Johnson and Gustav Lindell founded Pixly in 2017 to provide marketers with a new way to reach their target audiences outside of traditional acquisition channels. They used their past experience in user acquisition and monetization to identify the pain points of influencer marketing and built Pixly as a solution to address those problems. Pixly has quickly become the leading full-service influencer marketing agency for brands that want to leverage influencers across YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitch.
