In this rapidly changing social stratosphere, media analysts in marketing agencies help to determine a brand’s best course of actions in campaigning. From seemingly minimal decisions (hashtags, post-tagging, timing) to larger decisions, like partnering with an influencer to make them the face of your brand, every company’s next steps are crucial to their success. Influencer marketing agencies’ fixation on fine-tuning and viewer reactions helps keep company campaigning effective, without putting more pressure on the company itself.
Among the most important decisions influencer marketing campaigns make are:
Discovering: Finding the content creators suited to represent a brand can be tricky. The product must seem like it fits the creator’s already existing content or audience. This requires tireless searching and sifting through a variety of internet personalities’ videos, posts, and media. The search also must determine if the audience is as engaged in the content as needed, beyond likes, comments, and shares. The audience must be willing to actually spend money on their creator for the campaign to be effective.
Briefing / Hiring: Campaign briefing is crucial to the success of the production of the advertisement. The hiring process is where the influencers discuss rates, schedules, and creative goals of the ads. This process will be in accordance to the terms of what the company wants to spend on advertisements. The briefing process allows influencers to be a part of the creative direction of the advertisement. This allows the promotional to be easily integrated into regularly schedules content and be personalized for the viewer’s enjoyment. The creator knows what the audience likes best and this step will incorporate those interests into the finished ad.
Review- The ultimate goal of the agency is to optimize the amount of returns the company yields from sponsoring the influencer. The reviewing process allows the agency to analyze consumer statistics to determine the efficacy of the creator’s advertisement and whether the company should continue to pursue that route. This includes setting further rates and negotiating further, as well as establishing a long-term success of the advertisement
