Influencer Marketing Case Study: 23andMe Helps Influencers Discover Their Heritage

23andMe got off to a rocky start several years ago when the FDA banned the sale of their genetic health testing kits. In 2017, the company got back on track with the FDA, and tested a variety of creative partnerships in order to raise awareness about genetic testing.

The company not only convinced major retailers like CVS and Target to carry their product on the shelf, they also pioneered an animated short with Universal Pictures in which super-villain Gru discovers his long-lost brother using 23andMe.

Based on their open-mindedness when it comes to marketing, it’s no surprise that 23andMe likes to diversify their approach to partnerships, working with large brands like Lexus and more niche micro influencers. The theme that runs through all of their campaigns, however, is a very personal story of self-discovery.

Instagram Influencer Marketing Case Study: Bose Teams Up With Athletes, Music Artists, And Millennial Influencers

Many are familiar with Bose’s sleek and intelligently engineered audio equipment, which enhances listening experiences in homes, cars, studios, concerts, classrooms, and even work offices. Far fewer are familiar with how Bose designs such excellent product and then markets it. That’s because Bose tends to err on the side of secrecy and superiority, and perhaps even stubbornness when it comes to marketing. But Bose recently turned its attention to millennial influencers to stay in touch with this demographic.

The ever-evolving consumer electronic market has forced Bose to confront critical questions regarding its plan to resonate with consumers, namely millennials. Currently, trendy features like those you’ll find with their competitor, Beats By Dre, are in high demand amongst millennials, and this generation frequently consults social media in pursuit of product information. Bose has struggled to satisfy the swath of younger consumers who rely on social media and millennial influencers to guide their buying decisions, and faces an onslaught of pressure to succumb to the new marketing landscape and become more relevant on social media.

In line with their mission to create an innovative culture to provide customized audio experiences, Bose has engaged with top-tier celebrities and athletes, along with large, well-regarded partners. In more recent marketing campaigns, Bose has a rich history in following the principles of teamwork and collaboration, which has led to partnerships with elite performers and the production of specialized audio solutions for the collaborative creators of the world.

Content Marketing: What Is It, Why It's Important, & Best Examples

The phrase “content marketing” gets thrown around a lot, typically without much in the way of context or explanation as to what, exactly, it means. It sounds relatively straightforward — after all, content is, in some form or another, the driving force behind the majority of marketing efforts. But understanding what constitutes content marketing, what sets it apart, and how it overlaps with other types of marketing is vital to using it effectively.

Instagram Marketing Case Study: Chase’s #SapphireOnLocation Credit Card Campaign

With tiers such as gold, platinum, titanium, and black, the financial industry has turned credit card ownership into a symbol of one’s status. Combined with perks such as miles, points, cash back, and discount offers, certain consumers have even developed a kind of loyalty to their credit card brand. Traditionally, however, this excitement has not translated to younger spenders. That is, until the Chase Sapphire card.

The Sapphire line has been uniquely popular among millennials. Here, praise can be attributed to a team within JPMorgan that has looked to transform the mundanity of credit cards and point-earning into something more relevant to today’s spenders. Competing for attention in this space, however, have been prominent card companies like American Express that have conducted targeted outreach with younger consumers through their #AmexAccess campaign at events like Coachella.

In the case study below, we’ll take a look at how Chase used Instagram influencers to broadcast this message through their #SapphireOnLocation campaign.

There are dozens of different ways that brands partner with influencers. Every influencer marketing campaign is different, tailored to meet the nuanced needs of different industries, goals, platforms, content, creators, products, and more.

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.”
