Achieve revenue growth with influencer marketing

Like everyone who’s running influencer marketing campaigns, Atfluence wanted to see real growth for their clients while minimizing costs and efforts in campaign delivery. By onboarding both traditional influencers and organic influential customers with Upfluence, Atfluence delivered a sales-generating campaign. Utilizing Upfluence’s integrations with Shopify and Klaviyo, Atfluence identified nano-influencers (1K – 5K followers), as well as celebrity and macro-influencers (500K – 3M+ followers) within their client’s customer base. Activating their creator cohort with discount codes and affiliate links, thanks to Upfluence’s integration with Refersion, the campaign generated a 350% uptick in sales revenue! 

Organic vs. traditional influencers

For Atfluence, hiring organic influencers who were already fans of their client’s brand and knew all about their products helped them to speed up key campaign processes, saving time and money. Harnessing the authenticity and reach of these organic influencers helped them drive sales and deliver meaningful growth for their clients.
