Driving Sales Through Influencer Marketing

Strategies to turn creators, customers and influencer communities into your brands best sales people.

Driving Sales:
The Long & The Short Of It 

All influencer marketing efforts should lead to sales in some way — either long-term or short-term sales. The question for brands to get clear on is whether your goal is long-term or short-term sales. 

Long-Term Sales occur as a result of brand-awareness and engagement initiatives over time and are trickier to measure.

Short-Term Sales can be tracked as direct sales through seasonal activations or special sales-focused campaigns. 

Today, we’re going to focus on short term sales initiatives.

How Do You Know If Your Brand Is Ready To Drive Influencer Sales?

Every brand wants to drive sales through influencer marketing — but certain brands are better positioned to drive direct, trackable sales through influencers:

  • Brands with a lower purchase point

    For example, make up and hair care would work more effectively than diamond rings
  • Products with a short customer journey and lower consideration purchase

    A new sofa usually requires some consideration compared to some new cushions you might buy on the spot
  • Brands that are established on social media and have social media storefronts

    I.e. those who already have a following and a level of brand awareness
  • Brands that have are engaged with their target audience

    Engagement metrics such as comments, saves, click throughs, email sign ups show great potential for future sales
