If you’re wondering how you can use influencers on TikTok and Instagram to drive trial with your target audience through sampling, keep reading.
I work on the Brand Partnerships team at Sampl. Outside of work, when I’m not paddleboarding along Brighton seafront I’m actually a micro-influencer, focussing on the beauty sector. When working with brands I’ll usually get a specific link to use in my stories / posts. This will direct the audience to the full size product on the D2C most of the time. This is great, but what about people that need to try a product first before committing to buying it?
I recently did a TikTok for Olaplex which reached 1.2 million views. Tik Tok is a great way to reach a younger audience with huge scope for videos to go viral. The hundreds of comments on this video are all related to the product, with questions about how to use it / who it’s for. This is so valuable to Olaplex and gives them the opportunity to engage back with this audience on this platform.

Since working with Sampl, I realise that a huge opportunity is being missed. If you can work with influencers and instead direct users to request a sample of the product, this could have a huge impact on conversion. From my own experience, I know I love to try before I buy and many of my purchases come from influencer recommendations. This is amazing for new product launches as well as giving consumers a personalised experience as an introduction to your brand.
This multi-layered campaign could increase conversion, and at the same time our platform will measure the performance of the influencers / media channels to ensure they’re actually reaching the right audience.
I would love to chat with anybody interested in finding out more about implementing this kind of unique strategy. If you’d like to learn more, contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch via our website.
