From increasing brand awareness to tapping into new audiences and driving sales, we all know how effective influencer marketing can be. Still, sometimes our clients or bosses can need some extra convincing, which is why we put together our top ways of measuring ROI in influencer marketing.

 

Influencer Audience + Target Market Match

Finding an influencer with the right ‘look’ is all well and good, but if their followers identify as female and live in Mexico, and your product is targeted towards men and only available in the UK, it’s clearly not going to work out. Make sure your partners’ audience demographics match your desired audience. When working with your client or CEO, drawing their attention to this perfect audience match up will reassure them that your campaign is reaching the right people, a major relief when seeing that major brands are still paying for fake followers.

 

Engagement Gained

Before you select your influencers, it’s good practice to ensure they have a strong engagement rate. This engagement rate tells you how many people are actually interacting with and co-signing an influencer’s content. In many ways, this is how much influence they really have. 

When measuring the results of your campaign, we would always recommend tracking the total number of engagements, either by splitting likes and comments or counting them together. This number will show how many people you have not only reached, but actively caught the attention of enough to receive an interaction – a much stronger measurement than reach alone.

 

Earned Media Value

Earned media value is the cherry on top of your influencer marketing report! This measurement tells us how much we would have had to spend on traditional social media ads to get the same reach and engagement. This is a great way to prove the ROI of your campaign and show how the budget spent on influencer activities was a good investment.
