Influencer Cause Marketing Case Study: How Olay Achieved An Instagram Engagement Rate Higher Than 8%

Brands recognize that launching a cause marketing campaign enables them to tug at the heartstrings of a generation that values corporate social responsibility. To potentiate those effects, brands have connected their causes to influencers in the same camp. Influencer cause marketing helps brands harness the power of influential tastemakers while also defining their mission to support a cause near and dear to many consumers’ hearts.

Today, social media has given many movements the tools to spread their message with a resounding impact. Influencers add yet another layer, which is why many brands invest in this strategy to amplify their cause. Especially in a saturated digital environment, brands find it quite difficult to cut through the noise. Instagram, however, empowers brands by handing them a megaphone to reach their audience.

Within the beauty industry specifically, one can imagine how competitive the market is when it comes to promoting products that seem to make the same revelatory claims. In order to distinguish amongst a crowded space and drive ROI, beauty brands like Olay can leverage Instagram influencer marketing coupled with good old-fashioned cause marketing.

Instagram & YouTube Influencer Case Study: Canon Vs. Nikon Photography Influencers

It’s no secret that Canon and Nikon are competitors. But when it comes to concocting the secret sauce of both brands’ marketing strategies, it appears the photography product manufacturers tap the shoulders of social media influencers. While we don’t examine each brand’s influencer marketing as cohesive campaigns, we can gather insights into individual influencer initiatives to understand how each brand leverages and execute this tactic.

Examining Canon & Nikon Through The Lens Of Influencer Marketing

Canon has multiple Instagram accounts representing different countries across the globe, and each handle has worked with different sets of influencers. In one of their largest influencer initiatives in 2016, they launched the #TagYoureIt campaign in partnership with Jamie Chung and 11 other influencers. Since then, they’ve also partnered with Instagrammers, such as actress Zoe Kravitz, to support their #LiveForTheStory campaign, as well as talented photographers, like Chelsea Kauai, for their #ShootForGreatness campaign.

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.

nfl-team-bose

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.

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.

Case Study: The Unlikely Hero in the Journey of a Tiffany’s Diamond

Jack Morris (@doyoutravel) is someone you might think of as “the cute boy next door.” The 27-year-old travel influencer is frequently pictured barefoot and shirtless with a bandana around his head as he savors the stunning scenery that surrounds him. The boyish charm really comes to life in action shots such as Morris swinging on a rope in the Philippines, skateboarding through the hills of Turkey, and jumping from ocean cliffs in Greece. With images like these, it isn’t hard to see why Jack Morris has amassed 2.8 million Instagram followers.

Morris’ casual, boy-next-door appeal makes him an obvious candidate for promoting millennial-focused brands with products for millennial-sized budgets. Less obvious is Morris’ fit as an influencer for luxury brands, so it may come as a surprise that he recently collaborated with high-end jewelry retailer Tiffany and Co. But look a little deeper and you’ll see plenty of reasons why Morris and Tiffany’s is an unlikely match made in heaven.

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.”

Mother’s Day Marketing: How P&G And The Wonderful Company Partner With Influencers

Herbal Essences and Teleflora belong to two of America’s largest business conglomerates. The former is owned by P&G, a multinational consumer goods corporation that owns 66 brands. The latter is a member of The Wonderful Company, a corporation that maintains an impressive portfolio of names including FIJI Water, Wonderful Halos, and JUSTIN Wines. In the following case study, we’ll examine standout Mother’s Day marketing campaigns from both to see how America’s biggest businesses implement influencer marketing.

The National Retail Federation predicted that 86% of Americans would celebrate Mother’s Day this year, with the average person spending approximately $180. Divided by category, 35% of consumers planned to shop at department stores, 31% planned to shop online, and 29% planned to shop at a specialty store like a florist or jeweler.

Mother’s Day presents an opportunity for consumers of all ages to celebrate their mothers. The holiday also gives brands a chance to capitalize on purchases consumers might not normally make, whether on jewelry, flowers, or other specialty gifts. Female-centric brands and carriers of products specific to the holiday (flowers, jewelry, candy) are especially poised to take advantage.

Luxury Brand Marketing: How Tiffany & Co. And Swarovski Work With Influencers

Swarovski and Tiffany & Co. are two brands synonymous with luxury and tradition. The former was conceived in 1985 by Daniel Swarovski in Austria, and the latter was founded even earlier in 1837 by Charles Lewis and John Young in New York City. Both are jewelry giants, employing upwards of 7,000 people and generating billions in sales each year. In the following case study, we’ll compare influencer marketing campaigns from both brands and explore how each leverages influencers to reach different ends.

As the popularity of luxury goods continues to grow brands within the space are looking for new ways to separate themselves from competitors.

How eBay, ThredUp & H&M Do Influencer Marketing On Earth Day

eBay and ThredUp are two resale brands that naturally align with Earth Day — both are sustainable to the point that they don’t produce any new products. H&M, on the other hand, is a name regularly equated with fast-fashion. A purveyor of the latest fashion trends, the brand historically hasn’t paid much thought to sustainability. In the following case study, we’ll compare and contrast Earth Day influencer marketing campaigns from each brand. All three sell consumer goods but recruit influencers to achieve different ends.
