Consistently, industry studies show influencers inspire a high level of trust thanks to their authentic approach to communication and relationship building. When done correctly, this can directly correlate to the ROI generated for brands who engage in influencer marketing as a channel. In fact, Forbes recently published an article sharing how e-commerce brands are leveraging creator-led campaigns effectively – and seeing up to $6.50 returns for each $1 spent.
As marketers, we tend to think in terms of ourselves: we want to know exactly how to measure the success of influencer marketing campaigns and which steps to take to achieve a successful collaboration. But getting the most out of your efforts means thinking about things from a different perspective: that of the consumer.
In influencer marketing, just like e-commerce of any type, your efforts are likely to tank if you’re not thinking about the end user. You may have the best brand-influencer collaboration out there, but you’ll be missing a huge opportunity if you aren’t offering your site’s visitors a stellar online shopping experience.
Creating a seamless, online shopping experience is key if you want your influencer marketing campaign to work. In fact, it’s the most overlooked way to get ROI out of your influencer marketing.
It makes no difference whether your target audience is young or more mature. Conversion is the core outcome of today’s marketing objectives. Consumers are more savvy than ever and they expect fast, simple, intuitive experiences online – particularly when it comes to purchasing.
Facilitating an effortless shopping experience can make the difference between a sale and an abandoned cart. Which is what makes Creatable so revolutionary.
