Why run an influencer marketing campaign?
Influencer marketing is the way of the future. A recent survey reported 84% of marketers are planning on investing in at least one influencer campaign this year. Another statistic that highlights the importance of influencer marketing is the fact that 47% of online consumers use ad blockers--making running ads less rewarding than they once were. One cannot rely on their ads going through to their target markets’ newsfeeds, but they can reach their ideal market through the beloved social media personalities and leaders that they follow! Through this type of marketing you can benefit from the fact that your target audience is already interested in the influencer’s posts.
Those with social media influence understand that their audience is fickle and can unfollow them with a click of a button. For this reason, influencers prioritize the quality and tone of each post. Everything they share with their followers must feel authentic to their personal brand that their audience has grown to know and love. This reinforces their audience’s trust in the honesty of the endorsement behind the brands and products that the influencer features. This is what makes influencer marketing so impactful! The amount of reach, exposure and impressions is only half the value of what a social media influencer has to offer a brand. The association to the influencer’s personal brand and their seal of approval makes an impact on their viewers and on your sales!

What are the requirements for mandatory disclosure?
If your business operates in the US or Canada, there are industry regulations that govern the usage of sponsored social posts. The Competition Bureau and Advertising Standards Canada (ASC) require social media posts contain mandatory disclosures that outline the relationship between influencers and the brand – whether there’s a monetary exchange or an in-kind exchange – if there’s a relationship established, your brand is subject to these regulation and potential fines.
Our team helps facilitate the collaborations between you and the influencers and will remind you of the mandatory disclosure rules.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us.
