During the pandemic, marketers across the board have culled or cut down on their traditional campaigns and instead leant on influencers to directly reach out to consumers. But just how do you measure the impact of these campaigns?

Welcome back to Campaign Asia-Pacific's Crash Course learning series, in which you will learn valuable lessons and practical business tips on trending and essential topics from industry experts in just five minutes. Think of it as a mini mini MBA, if you will.

Lessons will cover the breadth of the marcomms industry, including technology, creative, media, strategy, leadership, diversity and inclusion and more. We'll start off by introducing you to larger topics and delve deeper into specific elements in the future. This series is designed to be useful to C-suite executives as well as those just starting out in their careers.

The lesson

The 19th lesson in the Crash Course series will detail effective ways to measure the impact of influencer marketing. As the pandemic has cut into ad spend and crippled big format campaigns, many brands have turned to influencers or key opinion leaders to more effectively reach consumers confined to their homes. But just how should marketers measure the impact of their influencer-driven campaigns?

This lesson will cover the nuances of influencer marketing across five key areas:

  • Defining what you're looking to get from influencer marketing.
  • How influencer marketing fits into your marketing mix.
  • Using the right metrics .
  • Benchmarking influencer marketing on your owned channels.
  • Understanding the sentiment of your brand.
