The Challenge

Atfluence is renowned for delivering high-impact campaigns for its clients. In a changing e-commerce landscape, Atfluence was seeking to help their client find innovative ways to achieve growth by incorporating influencer marketing and an efficient affiliate program as a key lever in their campaign while minimizing costs and efforts.

Their high-tech approach included traditional influencer search and sourcing organic influencers from within their client’s customer base, so they needed to leverage Upfluence’s unique integrations and data to modernize and accelerate their mission.

With substantial networks to explore and influencer strategies to execute, this campaign required a streamlined approach that called for integration capabilities that would uncover and onboard
traditional influencers as well as organic influential customers, while revealing their purchase history and brand loyalty. Atfluence needed to manage multiple campaigns and digital assets simultaneously, track conversions, and deliver deep performance analytics.

Upfluence's Integrations

By integrating Shopify with Upfluence, Atfluence was able to hand-select the perfect brand representatives based on social media data and purchase history. Due to the natural affinity the creators had with the brand, this analysis resulted in the creation of authentic, repurposable content, significant sales conversions, and stronger partnerships.

Atfluence also integrated Upfluence with Klaviyo to find organic influencers hidden in their client’s customer and contact lists. Effectual outreach at scale was then streamlined by using Klaviyo’s industry
leading email automation capabilities. When combined with data from Shopify, Atfluence was able to uncover their client’s most influential customers and create highly personalized outreach to these found
influencers.

Through integrating Refersion with Upfluence, Atfluence easily invited found influencers into their client’s affiliate programs and tracked all affiliate sales associated with their client’s campaigns. The best bit? It required minimal effort for all of these data points to be captured and consolidated by one central system – Upfluence.

A Key Disocvery

When Atfluence explored their client’s integrated datasets in Klaviyo and Shopify, they discovered influential customers ranging from Nano (1K – 5K followers) to hidden gem Mega & Celebrity influencers (500K – 3M+ followers).

An excellent example of this was the discovery of five mega influencers who were huge fans of Dolly Parton, as well as existing customers.

Atfluence unearthed them among integrated data then reached out and onboarded them as part of the launch of Dolly Parton’s new fragrance. Atfluence had found the perfect influential customers for their clients, Dolly Parton and ScentBeauty.

These mega influencers went on to generate thousands of affiliate sales orders!
