Are measured to see how many clicks or swipe ups your advertisement got. You can add any link you want to the ad and lead the traffic from the influencer’s profile to your own web shop or campaign site.
A complex analyzing tool, giving you the opportunity to extract valuable insight on the target group. Here you can find detailed results on who saw your ad, where they came from, how long they spent consuming it (for example reading time on blogs). Google Analytics also gives you the opportunity to make custom ads on Google’s platforms, which you can choose to show to the people who already saw the original ad from the influencer.
A short code added to the URL (link address), which gives you the opportunity to track specific campaigns/ads in Google Analytics. You can follow the potential customer and see which ad they came from. This is a great opportunity to get insight around which influencer contributed to most traffic and to analyze what worked best.
Facebook Business Manager
A platform for advertising on Facebook and Instagram. It gives us the opportunity to use the influencer’s content and channels to make custom paid ads. We can do retargeting based on the influencer’s pixel (code for tracking visitors built into their blog/website) or use Facebook’s targeting tool to reach more people in the target group. This method is often used to create a sales funnel where the audience gets custom ads based on previous interest. The campaigns are optimized continuously for the best possible result.
