Last-Click Coupons Have Dominated Affiliate Marketing For Years. Now, Brands Are Restrategizing With Influencers. – Tubefilter

last-click coupons have dominated affiliate marketing for years. now, brands are restrategizing with influencers. – tubefilter


Ad revenue slowdown caused by the pandemic has sparked a period of hyperspeed evolution for influencer marketing, says Brian Nickerson.
He would know–he’s the cofounder and CEO of MagicLinks, a marketing company that works with 19,000-plus creators and 3,000-plus brands. Its main business is providing influencers and companies with affiliate product links, but it also offers something it says is becoming increasingly crucial: accurate performance data for those links.
Affiliate links are, at their most basic, a tool to measure how much traffic a sponsored creator is driving to a brand. For example, a beauty guru may partner with a cosmetics company, and in his branded video, tell viewers to use his unique link if they want to check out the brand’s website. In some cases, affiliate links will earn creators cuts of sales based on how much product they move. But the links’ core purpose is to let brands know if their influencer investments paid off.
However, that’s not always as easy as it sounds.
“Basically, an influencer sends people to a brand, and then two-thirds of those people go look for a coupon right before they buy,” Nickerson says. It’s understandable that consumers– …



60% of Influencer Budgets to Stay the Same or Increase Post-COVID-19 – [Talking Influence]

60% of influencer budgets to stay the same or increase post-covid-19 – [talking influence]


While it may come as no surprise that 98% of marketers said that COVID-19 changed their marketing plans, the majority of marketers (71%) feel that influencers have the power to make a positive impact for their brand. This is according to the latest study from Linqia.
Influencer budgets haven’t been impacted the same way as overall digital ad spends, possibly due to the effectiveness of the content influencers produce. Once quarantines are lifted, 74% of marketers plan to activate influencer as much or more as they did pre-pandemic.
The report found that 67% of marketers said their overall digital marketing budgets have decreased in Q2 due to the pandemic, but only 41% said the same for their influencer budgets. In fact, almost 60% said their influencer budgets would stay the same or increase.
At the time of the survey (May 2020), about half (41%) said that they were planning to run an influencer marketing campaign in the next two months. And of those that are planning to run an influencer campaign, 25% plan to use more influencers than what they typically use. Interestingly, the purpose of their influencer campaign is to convey the right message, and none selected that the goal will be to drive sales.

Eminem joins a secretive text-message startup, sponsored content rates drop, and a new media kit library

Information Access and Management (IAM) Platform powers IAM Network - 60,000 + engaged information professionals worldwide.


Welcome back to this week’s Influencer Dashboard newsletter!

As always, this is Amanda Perelli (from home) with a weekly update on what’s new in the business of influencers and creators.This week, my colleague Dan Whateley and I published four influencer media kits from creators who are popular on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.Brand sponsorships are one of the main ways influencers earn money — and the first thing advertisers ask for during a pitch is a media kit. But what does an influencer media kit look like? 

It’s a document that creators use to show a brand the need-to-know information on their digital business and the impact they can have. The media kits we published — which were the exact ones the influencers used — range from 8 to 24 pages, and include audience demographics and rates, all wrapped up into one digital booklet that reflects what the influencer has to offer.These are the 4 creators we spoke to:Roberto Blake: 445,000 YouTube subscribers. Blake is a tech YouTuber who shared his 11-page media kit in February, which features a scale of the different rates he charges for a collaboration.Marina Mogilko: over 2 million YouTube subscribers. Mogilko runs three YouTube channels: language, technology, and business. …

Council Post: Diversity In Influencer Marketing: Why Your Brand Needs To Get It Right

council post: diversity in influencer marketing: why your brand needs to get it right



It surely isn’t news to you that influencer marketing has been criticized for having a diversity problem. As blogger Stephanie Yeboah wrote last year, “by exclusively using white influencers to tout holiday experiences, beauty and skincare products and fashion pieces, the story being told is that these experiences are only available to white people. Only white women use luxury skincare. Only white slim women go on holiday. Only white women wear a certain brand’s fashion pieces. It needs to stop.”
The importance of diversity in influencer marketing goes beyond the avoidance of consumer backlash. At my agency, we advise our clients to make diversity an integral part of their campaign planning, particularly if they’re looking to attract millennials or Gen Z  — not because it’s the politically correct thing to do, but because representation tells a more powerful brand story.
What Do We Even Mean By Diversity?
Diversity has become something of a buzzword in recent years, which can create a lot of confusion and bias about what people mean when they say it. For instance, it most definitely doesn’t mean “including a token person of color.” Diversity incorporates all of the elements that …

Why influencer agencies must be more than talent agents – PR Daily

why influencer agencies must be more than talent agents – pr daily


“Have your people call my people” is a well-worn phrase finding a voice among a new generation of famous faces: influencers. While traditionally seen representing professional actors, writers, musicians, and athletes, talent agents have begun to pivot to woo today’s digital content creators.
This trend seems to be picking up momentum, but the talent rep model isn’t the right idea for clients or influencers. We know because we tried it ourselves, almost ten years ago.
When we first launched Sway Group, we structured it like a talent agency. We were pioneers in seeing a need for bloggers to be paid what they were worth, and have someone negotiating on their behalf.
However, it wasn’t long before we had to adapt to better suit our clients, our creators—and ourselves. The talent agency model simply isn’t ideal for full-scale production of highly successful influencer marketing campaigns.
A full-service relationship
In the talent agent world, agents focus on negotiating the best rate possible for their client. Once a price is agreed upon, the agent typically steps out of the creative process.
This model isn’t ideal for many influencer/client partnerships since the value of working with a …

Where Do Influencers Sit in the Marketing Funnel? – [Talking Influence]

where do influencers sit in the marketing funnel? – [talking influence]


For the last decade, influencer marketing has been a vital strategy for marketers offering benefits like raising awareness with target audiences, building trust and creating customer loyalty. Whilst it’s widely established that influencer marketing is a great tool for awareness, many marketing professionals still struggle to convincingly demonstrate ROI. 
When evaluating the question of where influencers sit in the marketing funnel, most would suggest the awareness phase. Influencers have become synonymous with debuting new products and services to the market and campaigns are normally measured with ‘softer’ KPIs such as reach and engagement.
Whilst influencers are indeed excellent for awareness, they can also be used to successfully generate sales. With so many stages and touchpoints in today’s consumer decision-making process, there is no single best time or method to use influencer marketing successfully.
Influencers in the awareness phase 
In the recent 2020 Influencer Marketing Benchmark Report from IMH, 40% of surveyed participants listed awareness as the main objective for running influencer campaigns, a trend that has remained unchanged. So, why are influencers so great for building awareness?
One answer is that they provide brands access to their ready-made audience. Not only are these audiences often substantial but they are also …

Six core techniques for boosting influencer marketing ROI during the pandemic – Glossy

six core techniques for boosting influencer marketing roi during the pandemic – glossy


Unless you work for a supermarket, pharmacy or retail giant, chances are you’re facing pandemic-related budget cuts. Marketing is often the first to be told to do more with less. This can be discouraging, especially given that 2020 was supposed to be the biggest year in influencer marketing history.In many ways, it still might be. While the pandemic may have canceled exotic influencer trips, store opening parties and on-location photo shoots, it’s accentuated the importance of authentic influencer relationships and influencer-generated content.
Screen time has skyrocketed. People are socializing and shopping from their phones more than ever. But to survive long-term stay-at-home orders and encourage people to shop e-commerce, marketers need new ways to create content and expand their reach.

For brands, if there is a silver lining to the quarantine, it’s that influencer marketing is experiencing unprecedented growth, sophistication and creativity. According to Traackr data from over 30,000 beauty and fashion influencers, mentions of TikTok on their Instagram feeds increased 99 percent in the first month of quarantine.
Everyone, influencers included, are trying out new content and formats. Whether brands are tapping into organic advocates, scaling ambassador programs or leveraging influential creators to produce quality content for their …

What Are The Opportunities For Influencers

what are the opportunities for influencers


The world won’t be getting back to a complete normal anytime soon. Everything from the dining out to … [+] a trip to the shopping mall will be dramatically different, and influencers will have to adapt.


While it would be easy to assume that the global novel coronavirus pandemic would make influencers seem a lot less relevant, the fact that so many people have had extra time on their hands has proved to be a good thing in many ways.
According to research from Matter Communications, 63% of consumers have actually spent a lot more time over the past two months viewing and/or posting on social platforms, and as a result many are seeing more content from influencers. This has also increased the level of trust among influencers – along with recommendations from friends and families – from a brand itself. The study also found that influencers have not been tone deaf to the situation. And only 19% of respondents say they felt that influencer content has become unhelpful in these difficult times.
Most surprisingly, even during the global pandemic influencers have continued to drive the conversation about brands, and continued to drive sales from their social media platforms. The study found that 82% of …

Viewers No Longer Relate to Lavish Instagram Influencers

viewers no longer relate to lavish instagram influencers


|15 mins ago

There is so much speculation about how brands and influencer marketing will transform (or won’t), but I’m more curious as to how we have already begun to evolve as human beings during this time. To what extent have our values and belief systems changed? How has this impacted our relationship with brands and influencers?In many ways, there’s been a loss of innocence. Generations that have never been touched by catastrophe are suddenly learning to grow up. With this maturity comes new perspectives, values and expectations. There will continue to be a complete revaluation of what matters and what is worth our time or expenditure.The success of brands and the influencers they engage will depend on the extent to which they can understand and anticipate these new perspectives and shifting attitudes. Many will need to reevaluate the role they play in our lives and the stories they tell.Although the internet has democratized many things, social media has always been about projecting the life that you want to live. But what happens when that life is not even remotely attainable? We’ll continue to aspire to a life well lived, but the allure of …
