Analyzing the quality of social media content is essential in the discovery of new influencers. In order to be able to make an informed statement about the fit of an influencer to Yepoda, it is necessary to be able to look at the content over a longer period of time. Keeping track of all influencer activities is a time consuming job on a daily basis.
As mentioned at the beginning, for Yepoda it is important to work with the right influencers from the start who represent the brand in the best possible way. Therefore Yepoda’s influencer marketing team is searching for influencers who already meet their requirements. "We don't want to change them - we need to find influencers who are already a fit." explained Eunyoung.
Yepoda entered the market in 2020 as a young company with a great set of products and a clear brand philosophy. With K-Beauty products, they were convinced of the product/market fit. An important task besides gathering information about influencers was to stay updated on what is happening in the industry and in influencer marketing. Insights about current influencer marketing campaigns help the team at Yepoda to stay updated.
To meet all these challenges, Yepoda has been looking for a tool that improves the different stages in influencer marketing such as discovery, campaign tracking and monitoring. After one month in which Storyclash was put through its paces, Yepoda decided to use the tool for the long term. A big relief for Yepoda’s influencer marketing initiatives is the fact that Storyclash stores Instagram content and thus gives marketing teams the possibility to analyze them over a longer period of time.
Storyclash allows a deep analysis of every influencer. "For me Storyclash is the best tool when it comes to detailed information about influencer activities on Instagram", states Eunyoung.
The Top Sites module provides insights into the number of Instagram stories within a certain period of time. Also the number of swipe up links, which is a new feature in Storyclash, is recorded. Other helpful metrics are the average interaction rate, fan growth, number of posts and number of fans across all platforms (Instagram, TikTok, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter).
With this comprehensive data, Storyclash takes over an important part in the influencer discovery process of the young beauty startup. Therefore Eunyoung states, "I cannot make any deal with my influencers without the insights of Storyclash!". Yepoda can discover influencers and monitor social media activities with Storyclash.
