  35. 35. Business objectives Clearly identifiable areas of influencer Influencer partnerships should be based on two sets of criteria: The business objectives the influencer’s activity can deliver against - awareness, affinity, advocacy or action. The areas in which the influencer actually is influential. EVOLVING OUR THINKING
  36. 36. TALENT CREATORS MEDIA FIGURES EXPERTS GATEKEEPERS CONSUMER ADVOCATES E.g. Daisy Lowe E.g. Hazel Hayes E.g. Gizzi Erskine E.g. Erica Davis E.g. Catwalkschoolgates E.g. EllaRuthTaylor SIX INFLUENCER TYPES
  37. 37. Talent Creators Media Figures Experts Gatekeepers Consumer Advocates Talent Creators Media Figures Experts Gatekeepers Consumer Advocates Focus on Awareness and Affinity Focus on Advocacy and Conversion FINDING THE RIGHT INFLUENCER BLEND Establishing the key business objectives allows us to determine the correct types of influencers to seek out to best deliver an ROI.
  38. 38. PINPOINT INFLUENCER IDENTIFICATION We map the social web to find influencers based on their influence in subject areas rather than simple follower metrics. We then segment the network to understand the areas of influence and their most impactful advocates.
  39. 39. UTILISING NETWORK THEORY We use basic graph theory, and resulting metrics, to understand influence in a given social network. Looking at the network relationships allows us to understand how information has spread in the past, and will likely spread again in the future across existing communities.
  40. 40. CONNECTING THE DOTS THROUGH BETWEENNESS CENTRALITY We focus on the extent to which nodes (social media accounts) in the network act as ‘bridges’, or ‘agents’ and ‘gatekeepers’ as we’re analysing social networks. The is calculated by taking each node and drawing the shortest line to every other node in the network, then understanding how often each of these routes passes through each node. The output gives us a numeric ranking which we can use as the basis for an influencer score.
  41. 41. • Money • Profile building • New products first • Input into New Product Development • Usage of products • Access to experts and knowledge • Content inspiration • A sense of belonging to a wider movement or cause • Social currency • A face for the campaign • Network access/reach • Content creation • Events • Positive endorsement • Authenticity • Access to their fans BRANDS OFFER INFLUENCERS OFFER DEFINING THE VALUE EXCHANGE By creating a clear value exchange we can ensure both our brands and our influencers benefit from the relationship.
  42. 42. TRANSPARENCY GUIDELINES Use language that conveys the advertising has been paid for The commercial nature of the post should be clear before the user clicks/engages with the content Notice of the sponsorship should be large and visible enough for a consumer to notice it in the context of a given page and/or relative to the device the ad is being viewed on Be aware of the technical quirks of each platform and what opportunities there are to identify something as a piece of sponsored content
  43. 43. PLATFORM TRANSPARENCY Platform Best Practice Facebook Verified Profiles: Co-branded posts Non Verified Profiles: #Ad #Sponsored Instagram Verified Profiles: Co-branded posts Non Verified Profiles: #Ad #Sponsored YouTube Indication in title and/or description that it is sponsored content Twitter Whitelisted profiles for promoted posts #Ad #Sponsored for organic posts Blogs Reference in headline or byline
  44. 44. Gaining access to influencer-owned social data and analytics is becoming much easier, especially on Facebook and Instagram. When measuring the effectives, it’s important to try and compare it against other activity. We measure: • Impressions & CPM • Engagement Rate & CPE • Shares & Share Rate • Clicks/Acquisitions & CPC/CPA • Earned media featuring the influencers or their content • Increased conversation about the brand surrounding the influencers MEASURING THE IMPACT
