Agreement enables L'Oréal Canada to monetize video content and track performance across their entire Influencer network
TORONTO, Dec. 12, 2016 /CNW/ - dubdub, a Toronto-based tech company in the mobile space, today announces a partnership agreement with L'Oréal Canada to enhance and accelerate their influencer marketing programs.
dubcandy is a brand new video application, available on both iOS and Android, that for the first time unlocks the power of independent video content creators to generate direct sales by turning any video into a shoppable video. The ability to measure and attribute sales to specific influencer content is a unique benefit in terms of ROI, but also in terms of being able to refine and modify their messaging for new audiences. Forward-thinking brands are realizing the huge potential upside in unleashing the distributed nature of influencers – both established influencers and the growing volume of micro-influencers – who are passionate about their brands and products.
"It's amazing to work with an iconic global company like L'Oréal Canada who is genuinely looking to innovate its marketing efforts," said dubdub CMO, Hilton Barbour. "L'Oréal Canada is actively using dubcandy to optimize their influencer campaigns and that highlights how astute brands want new ways to engage their consumers, but require a simple way to attribute direct sales from authentic content creators. It's going to be fascinating to see how dubcandy can help them do both."
The power and importance of influencers continues to grow exponentially, particularly as advertising legislation and ad-blocking technologies plays havoc on traditional advertising channels. Data-driven campaigns have become the new norm, and now both influencers and brands are demanding a way to calculate and track the ROI of their video content. Through dubcandy's dashboard, influencers and brands can keep track of important metrics to assess success.
"We are happy to partner with dubdub and the dubcandy app. We are always looking for ways to innovate and be 'digital first.' Ecommerce acceleration is part of our growth strategy in Canada and as a longtime advocate and supporter of influencer marketing, we feel that partnering with influencers through innovative e-commerce initiatives is the new way to operate," said Stéphane Bérubé Vice-President & Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) L'Oréal Canada. "dubcandy is helping us convert content into ecommerce sales. This will definitely change the way we produce in-house video assets and the way we work with influencers in the future. dubcandy is helping us elevate our influencers' partnerships and launch a new compensation model that will be directly linked to the influencer's branded content reach and engagement."
