Repurposing Your Influencer Marketing Content for Maximum Value
You’ve heard it many times: reuse, reduce, recycle. Did you know that this piece of advice doesn’t just apply to aluminum cans and plastic water bottles?
You can repurpose your influencer marketing content to increase its value to your campaign. Think of it like a neighborhood recycling program: You’re preventing waste while putting resources back into the community — or, in this case, your company.
Repost on Social Media
Your influencers likely share content related to your brand on social media, but the buck doesn’t have to stop there. Just as you would toss your Dr. Pepper can into a recycling bin at work, you can repost content that your influencers have already shared with your audience.
In addition to supplying you with free content, reposting influencer content also ensures that your message reaches the broadest audience possible. Influencer campaigns often cost money, so make sure you get as much ROI as possible out of each piece of content.
Use Content For Advertisements
Many people recycle for altruistic reasons, but others expect to earn money for it. Scrap metal yards, for instance, will pay for aluminum cans and other metals. You can use this same philosophy to give your digital ads more meat.
According to an eMarketer report, one-fifth of respondents to a marketing study revealed that they had used influencer content in their digital ads. They might post a photograph of an influencer wearing a piece of clothing, for instance, to promote an apparel brand. Along with a well-worded pitch, this type of advertisement can easily move product.
Make sure you have permission to use the content commercially (which is usually part-and-parcel of influencer campaigns.) Additionally, target your advertisements to an audience that will recognize your influencer and therefore ascribe more meaning to the promotion. If consumers don’t know the influencer, they probably won’t feel swayed by his or her opinion.
