Influencer Marketing Case Study: Gymshark Influencers Take A Bite Out Of TikTok

In September 2018, TikTok was the most downloaded social media app in the U.S. On a worldwide scale, the app achieved the same feat in Q4 2018. With more than 500 million global monthly active users, the rising short-form video network is now being included in conversations alongside more established platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube.

Businesses are also taking notice of TikTok’s potential as a marketing channel. On average, TikTok users are younger than other popular platforms while the community has a strong foundation in music (formerly Musical.ly). For fitness clothing brand, Gymshark, TikTok offers a means to reach and engage a distinct audience and demographics.

Founded in 2012, UK-based Gymshark came alive in the age of mobile social media. Utilizing influencer marketing to reach its customers, Gymshark has become an exciting global clothing competitor. The company reached 52.8 million in sales during the summer of 2018 and forecasts potential nine-digit revenue in the coming year. While companies capable of producing such numbers make many smart moves along their ascent, one of Gymshark’s go-to tools has been well-designed influencer marketing campaigns.Read More>>

Influencers Are Championing The Beauty Transparency Movement

What Is Beauty Transparency?

“Beauty Transparency” Defined

Beauty transparency is a phrase that refers to ethics and truthfulness of the beauty industry as it relates to customer knowledge. The beauty industry encompasses the sales of all cosmetic products including makeup, haircare, skincare, and fragrance. This industry has long been criticized for its opaqueness, meaning that consumers have little access to critical information about industrywide practices like the quality of ingredients, retail markup, and manufacturing process. In addition, the beauty industry has been criticized for being closed off to minorities in terms of product offerings and choice of models.

What Is A CGI Influencer?

CGI stands for “computer-generated imagery.” Put simply, it’s the process of creating pictures through the use of computers. Currently, this technology is being applied to create eerily realistic CGI Instagram models. Because CGI influencers operate as robots or artificial intelligence, they are virtual social media influencers.

By now we’re all comfortable with the notion of social media influencers of all kinds. From fashion bloggers to tech vloggers to monkeys and pigs to funky grandmas, nearly every facet of life seems to be covered in one form or another through online influencers. If you’re not surprised by a Bahamian raccoon having picked up 1.5 million followers on Instagram, then you’re probably not surprised by much—or so you would think.

That is because none other than CGI influencers, or virtual influencers, are roaming the world of social media and making big impressions on what would otherwise be considered a market for sentient beings.Read More>>

Social Media Influencers Drive Trends–But How? And Why?

Social Media Influencers Drive Trends–But How? And Why?

For the latest influencer marketing news, resources, and case studies, subscribe to our weekly newsletter!

The Shift From Celebrities To The Power Of Social Media Influencers

  • Through social media, influencers generate conversation, drive engagement, and set cultural trends.
  • Audiences are more receptive of social media influencers than celebrities.
  • Influencers are early adopters of new products and services, creating desire amongst their audiences.

Celebrity influencers have been around nearly as long as there have been celebrities. The first instances of celebrity product endorsement occurred in centuries past when royalty advertised the prestige of luxury goods. A new breed of celebrity influencers evolved in the 20th Century with people leisurely following the activities of famous actors, musicians, and professional athletes. In many ways, celebrities initiated trends.

As people have moved away from traditional media and spent more time on social media, trendsetters have molded into more relatable “influencers.” It is no longer just celebrities who influence society’s tastes; social media stars play an increasingly larger role. These modern influencers are social media personalities with loyal audiences built through regular, direct communication with their followers.

The Top 20 Latina YouTubers Boast 86 Million Total Subscribers

The influencer marketing industry has boomed over the past 5 years and is expected to reach $5-10 billion by 2020. The growth of social networking sites has provided a platform for connection, sparking a massive shift in marketing tactics. Through social media, influencers can connect directly to their audience, providing a substantial advantage over traditional advertising methods. Online social media influencers are simply more relatable than actors in a TV commercial.

Influencer marketing still shares the same basic principles of other marketing methods. When selecting an influencer, it’s imperative that brands choose someone who appeals to and influences their target market. In the US, there are currently around 57 million people of Hispanic descent, with over 14 million in California alone. Hispanics now make up a majority of the population in California at 39%, compared to 37% who identify as white.

With this shift in demographics, advertisers must evolve as well. Some TV commercials have made alternatives in Spanish, for example, and Hulu has begun to include similar ads. This inclusiveness is positive for the community and necessary for brands who want to make the most of rising Hispanic buying power. Fortunately, there are countless Latina influencers who carry clout.

Together, the top 20 Latina YouTubers boast a remarkable 86 million subscribers. Many of them have a primarily female audience, posting on beauty, cosmetics, health, and other female-driven topics. See our list below of the top 20 Latina YouTubers in order of YouTube subscribers.

For Better Or For Worse, The Wedding Industry Is Under The Veil Of Wedding Instagram Influencers

Before you read this article, take a moment to open Instagram and search the term “wedding”. As you’ll soon discover, the tag #weddingphotography includes more than 17 million posts. Similarly, #weddingdress rings in just over 20 million, while the tag #wedding appears in nearly 128 million posts. While some of these posts come from soon-to-be brides and grooms, many of them are, in fact, the work of wedding Instagram influencers.

Those tags represent only three out of hundreds. The pressure on soon-to-be-married couples to have an Insta-worthy wedding is sky-high, and that’s exactly what wedding Instagram influencers want. By subtly marketing stunning, awe-inspiring wedding photos, social media influencers effortlessly reel in loads of faithful followers. Dress sales and new trends inevitably follow. Whether or not we care to admit it, the wedding industry is inarguably under the sway of social media influencers.

Creative Instagram Influencers And Bloggers With Quality Photography And Design Aesthetics

Instagram is the world’s most dominant platform for influencer marketing—it’s estimated that the Instagram influencer marketing industry will reach $2 billion by 2019. The social media platform boasts over 1 billion users, making it a powerful beacon for consumer brands.

Instagram is home to an untold number of social media influencers who create content for every imaginable niche. It’s difficult—for both brands and creators—to stand out in this very crowded space. The trend-based nature of Instagram content can cast a generic “sameness” over your Instagram feed, to the point where it can be difficult to identify any distinguishing quality of a specific influencer.

The most creative Instagram influencers establish themselves as not just a tastemaker, but a distinct brand that expands beyond the individual. Extraordinarily creative influencers have cultivated a unique aesthetic to truly make their mark on Instagram.
