Hinge Worked With Influencers to Rebrand and Relaunch Their App

Over the years, New York-based Hinge has worked diligently to carve out its niche in the uber-competitive world of online dating. Founded in 2011 by Justin McLeod, Hinge app was released in February 2013 in a market largely dominated by online sites such as OkCupid, Match, and eHarmony. At launch, Hinge’s free app had a similar function to Tinder, offering swipeable profiles of prospective partners. However, in an ever-crowded space — which would come to include rivals such as location-based Happn and female-empowering Bumble — Hinge struggled to find its unique point of difference among today’s busy daters.

Rebranded as “The Relationship App,” swipes are gone, an Instagram-like format has been adopted, and subscription plans range from $5-13 per month. Now with 100K+ app installs on Google Play and a recent acquisition by Tinder parent company, Match Group, Hinge seems to finally be having its moment. Hinge App describes itself as an “alternative to swipe culture by creating smart matches and natural conversations among people who are on the same page. That’s why 75% of our first dates turn into second dates.”

Instagram has provided a means for contestants on the Bachelor and other reality shows to translate their exposure from the show into a social media footprint and lasting exposure.

Just how much can top reality stars on Instagram earn? Our forecasts (detailed below) peg the median amount nearly $1 million a year.

FTC Endorsement Guidelines For 2018 [Infographic]

FTC Endorsement Guidelines For 2018 [Infographic]

The Updated 2018 FTC Endorsement Guidelines: What Brands Must Know For Sponsorships On Social Media & With Influencers [Infographic]

The FTC's new endorsement guidelines for sponsored content rests on a simple assumption: consumers are likely to react differently to recommendations that come from trusted friends (or social media stars) than from people who receive compensation to endorse a product. To that end, the FTC is attempting to create more transparency in sponsored social media content by placing more onus on brands (and in some cases, on influencers too) to openly divulge the relationship between companies and the digital stars who recommend their products or services.

While the FTC now offers more guidance on exactly what it expects proper disclosure to look and/or sound like—the agency even published a simple Q&A to address marketers' basic concerns—the ever-changing nature of social media makes establishing a set of clear-cut rules nearly impossible. Instead, the FTC offers a number of guidelines that brands can follow to convey a reasonable degree of transparency to digital media/social media consumers.

Based on our experience developing sponsored social media content for global brands, we've identified what we believe to be the most important FTC endorsement rules below.

What Marketers Must Know About Instagram’s New Branded Content Policy

The Instagram influencer marketing industry has grown tremendously over the past several years, and is expected to reach a value of over $2 billion by 2019. As the industry grows, rules and regulations are beginning to catch up with influencers and brands. The FTC issued warnings to over 90 top influencers earlier this year, and the recent CSGOLotto scandal marked the first case that charged individual influencers.

The FTC isn’t alone in moving towards stricter regulation of sponsored content. In late August, Instagram announced its adoption of Facebook’s branded content policy, which requires that all branded content be clearly marked using Instagram’s new paid partnership tag.

This shift in Instagram’s policy has major implications for the influencer marketing industry as a whole. Here, we break down what Instagram’s branded content policy is, how it fits in with FTC guidelines, and what it means for the future of influencer marketing on Instagram.

Why Influencer Programs Fail (And How Marketers Can Fix Them Before They Do)

In a digital landscape crowded with content and advertisements, influencer marketing has proven a powerful and effective method for rising above the noise to connect to consumers authentically through creators they trust.
