Transcript of "Influence Marketing: Global Survey of Marketers and PR Professionals 2013"

  1. 1. INFLUENCE MARKETING Marketer Survey Spring 2013 #InfluenceMktg Sponsored by: Copyright @ 2013 Sensei Marketing Inc. & ArCompany Inc. All rights reserved.
  2. 2. Understanding Influence Marketing The practice of influence marketing, formalized by Daniel Edelman in the late 1960′s with celebrity endorsements, is enjoying a renaissance in the social media era. As more and more consumers migrate to online communications, the concept of influence has been democratized. Increasingly, consumers are making decisions based on the attitudes and recommendations expressed by the public via online channels (instead of celebrity endorsements) with whom they now have immediate and around-the-clock access to. Businesses are now competing with – and often losing to – “the wisdom of crowds” in the branding battle. Therein lays the opportunity that has spurred on the growth of modern influence marketing: identifying online individuals who sway consumer opinion on specific topics and within specific communities. A slew of social scoring platforms have emerged with claims that they can identify who influences who online while providing various tools and scoring systems to rank those who are influential and those who are not on a variety of topics. However, as with most early adopters, their efforts have been widely criticized. Some say they’re just misunderstood and that the technology is just too new. Either way, there’s one certainty: Marketers and public relations professionals are taking notice. We surveyed marketing professionals around the world in our ongoing effort to better understand this growing industry and where businesses stand on the issue. Can social influence truly be measured? Is anyone using them? What’s the future of influence marketing? We hope you’ll find the results insightful. Feel free to share the results with your colleagues using the hashtag #InfluenceMktg and let us know your thoughts! Copyright @ 2013 Sensei Marketing Inc. | ArCompany Inc. All rights reserved.
  3. 3. More than 50% will be allocating budgets for “influence marketing” strategies, but more than 60% reported no budgets will be allocated for “social influence scoring platforms.” 79% of respondents have used social scoring platforms; 55% state social scoring platforms are ineffective at identifying influencers 94% of the marketers surveyed don’t fully trust the metrics of social influence scoring platforms Key Insights Copyright @ 2013 Sensei Marketing Inc. | ArCompany Inc. All rights reserved. 2 3 4 68% see Influence marketing as a lead generation and customer acquisition practice, not a branding exercise. Marketers and PR professionals see a clear difference between the practice of influence marketing and social influence scoring platforms. 5 6 1 674% reported that they will deploy “influence marketing strategies” as part of their marketing mix in the next 12 months.
