A Beginner’s Guide to Influencer Marketing

A Beginner’s Guide to Influencer Marketing

Influencer marketing is a type of social media marketing where a person with an established following promotes a brand. If done right, it is effective because followers trust and listen to the influencers they follow. They also have incredibly specific audiences. For example, Kylie Jenner’s company Kylie Cosmetics made her a billionaire because she targets her following of young girls, who are interested in makeup, and willing to pay her price. Kylie has not paid a single dollar in social ad spend because of her following on social media. Kim Kardashian’s makeup brand is slightly less successful because she has an older crowd that is less interested in makeup and not always willing to spend money on expensive products.

Brands With Marketing That Empower Women

Brands With Marketing That Empower Women

In light of March being Women’s History Month, we are highlighting brands that empower women. These brands are essential to the marketing world because society glorifies the opposite. Too many industries are focused on bringing women down and making them feel like they need to change. Brands market to women that they are not good enough, and the worst part is, it works. The brands that use their name to bring women up, instead of tearing them down have our support, and we specialize in brand-building.

Brands with the Best Diverse Digital Marketing

Brands with the Best Diverse Digital Marketing

February is Black History Month which sparks the conversation of diversity in digital marketing. Ads are commonly created with iStock or Canva images, which could sound simple. However, the appearance of the people in those images matters, and you should be strategic about them. 64% of people will take action after seeing an ad that they view as diverse or inclusive (thinkwithgoogle.com). Likewise, Generation Z and Millennials are more culturally competent and have higher expectations of diversity in brands. These generations will commonly research a company and its culture before choosing to buy from them. Businesses that promote social justice and run diverse ads are more popular amongst the younger generations. Therefore, if you are targeting a younger market you might want to consider making your brand, and business, more diverse. Here at PPL Labs we can help you build that brand and get your name out there. Here are some examples of brands that did a stellar job of implementing diversity in their marketing.
