Authentic content for owned channels

Scaling Influencers without breaking the bank

Clarins USA needed to find a way to scale influencer efforts without adding headcount or overtaxing their already busy staff. Typically, managing the logistics for influencer campaigns is quite time-consuming. For each influencer engaged in the #worththewrinkle campaign, hours were spent by marketing staff on emailing, managing product fulfillment, content approvals and reporting on results. Additionally, details of ever-changing seasonal beauty products are often released last minute, making the challenge of getting content produced quickly all the more difficult. Dealing with hundreds of influencers in a series of large-scale just-in-time influencer campaigns would be nearly impossible without marked efficiency improvements.

Improving productivity, increasing performance

By launching the Clarins Influencer Network on Tidal Labs’ ContentMetric platform, many of the steps that were performed manually for the #worththewrinkle campaign have been automated. This includes identifying the right influencers, inviting and communicating with them, gathering their addresses, reviewing their content and compensating them at project end. Between the first and second influencer campaign executed by Clarins, the number of hand interactions for each participating influencer dropped from 1.2 to 0.75. The amount of time and effort spent by Clarins marketing managers for each earned engagement dropped by a factor of 4 over the first 8 weeks after launch. Using the ContentMetric platform, influencers require less attention and perform better, resulting in increased return on marketing investment.

A stream of quality, authentic content

Clarins USA has built an ongoing relationship with hundreds of influencers, activating them to produce hundreds of high-quality posts on blogs, Instagram and Snapchat each month. All photos and videos produced are automatically gathered from their creators in high-resolution form for use by the Clarins marketing team. Over 1,400 high-quality original images have been gathered, with the best reused across Clarins-owned channels including Instagram, emails and other digital campaigns. Based on this early success, Clarins USA plans to utilize influencers not just for content and social campaigns but also for product testing, trendspotting and collaborating on local events. Having one place for both the brand and influencer to manage this interaction is an integral part of this new strategy.
