New York, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Smart brands understand that social media is about way more than simply "posting on Twitter and Facebook". Instead, they use social monitoring and analysis to track consumers' every social movement, identify passions and motivations, and offer brand experiences that satisfy consumers' desires - both online and offline. Insights optimize engagement, which systematically drives sales and ROI. And at the core of marketing success is the evolving discipline of "Influencer Marketing".
Brand Influencers (http://www.brand-influencers.com) is a new kind of social agency, rooted in consumer intelligence, behavioral targeting and experiential marketing. By analyzing hundreds of thousands of social conversations taking place among a brand's target audience, the agency identifies key passions, interests, trending content and - most importantly - the thought leaders, bloggers and social influencers driving that conversation at the highest levels.
These "Influencers" have the ability to shape perception, drive awareness, trial, purchase and evangelism. And BI builds campaigns that systematically "influence the influencers", building SOCIAL ARMIES for brands across all verticals that brands can activate continually, in perpetuity. Whereas technology companies like Klout hand off a list of potential influencers to a brand and expect them to know what to do with it, Brand Influencers builds, activates and manages ongoing influencer campaigns, effectively overseeing entire influencer communities, continually incentivitizing them to interact with their audiences, tracking their amplification and making adjustments real-time to maximize engagement.
Whether it's a new product launch, trial or sampling program, event or sponsorship, retail or sales initiative, social or online push, or an above-the-line ad campaign, authentic influencers have proven to increase marketing success by over 23%, increase social engagement by 26%, drive trial by 31% and increase sales by 20%.
In August 2012, Brand Influencers was featured by GDR Creative Intelligence in its global trend report on Influencer Marketing and Social Intelligence. Downloaded the report here: GLOBAL INFLUENCER MARKETING REPORT.
