How PopSugar Became Entangled In Influencer Controversy

On April 17, 2018, news outlets among the likes of Racked, The Verge, and Fashionista broke a story centered around media and technology company PopSugar and Instagram influencers. Several fashion and lifestyle influencers have come forward and accused the celebrity and fashion-centric online news site of repurposing their Instagram content, without permission, to generate profits via affiliate links.

Founded in 2005, PopSugar is more than just a source of popular culture news. The media company also sells a quarterly subscription box, its own makeup line, and until last year owned the affiliate link service ShopStyle. According to its website, PopSugar’s global audience sits at 400 million, the brand reaches one-in-three millennial women and achieves 3.1 billion global monthly content views. This is all to say, the company has the potential to earn enormous sums of money using affiliate links.

In the following post, we’ll break down the fallout of the allegations against PopSugar and discuss the scandal’s implications for the influencer industry, particularly in regards to content ownership and copyright infringement. Read More>>

Easter Marketing Campaign Case Study: How Whole Foods & ALDI Do Influencer Marketing

Few grocery stores are as drastically different than ALDI and Whole Foods. The former is known for its discount prices and the latter is practically synonymous with the terms “high-end” and “organic.” In the following case study, we’ll examine how both execute Easter influencer marketing campaigns to serve differing business goals.

The National Retail Federation projected that American Easter spending would amount to $18.2 billion in 2018, or $150 a person. Sustenance, whether chocolate bunnies or glazed ham, is a cornerstone of the holiday. Of the money Americans spend on Easter, the largest portion is dedicated to food, roughly $5.7 billion.

As such, the holiday presents an excellent advertising opportunity to food suppliers. Grocery stores are especially poised to benefit from Easter marketing because more than half of Americans (58%) prepare Easter dinner instead of eating out. Read More>>
