We’ll prove it works with examples from these five powerful brands who have created a plan and path so you can forge ahead and find your payoff.  

  • Plan: Connect with retail associates in 876 unique retail stores—a prime location for influential conversations—to promote their product, Purina Muse. 
  • Path: Impacted 70,000 weekly, ongoing conversations between retail experts and customers. 
  • Payoff: Retail experts were six times more likely to recommend Purina Muse to customers. 
  • Plan: Seek out trusted product reviews that achieved an organic ambassador approach that could naturally support the brand positioning of specific products. 
  • Path: Utilize the gear tester program to recruit experts within the ExpertVoice network to provide online reviews for their refined Bluetooth Speaker line.  
  • Payoff: The reviews poured in. And it wasn’t just about quantity, but the quality of those reviews that helped reinforce the positioning of this product line.
  • Plan: Reposition Reebok as a top running shoe brand through the successful launch of the Floatride running shoe. 
  • Path: Involve the most serious and passionate runners, a group narrowed down to 1,256 known as Reebok Elite, early on with exclusive behind-the-scenes access into development and a pair of their own Floatrides to put to the test and provide authentic observations. 
  • Payoff: Best debut award for the Floatride shoe with 1.57 million social impressions generated and 17,000+ running experts engaged 90 days after the launch.  
  • Plan: Help experts in mountain biking become experts and ambassadors for the Diamondback brand. 
  • Path: Target specific experts, provide product discounts and brand knowledge, and create a relationship with them to influence future products. 
  • Outcome: Experts relay their experiences and positive brand interactions which generates full price sales. 
  • Plan: Increase and improve expert recommendations to drive consumer sales for Mammut.
  • Path: Identify, educate, and incentivize experts with an all-inclusive approach to engage and empower them.  
  • Payoff: 31,911 experts engaged to review 24,259 products which resulted in a 28% increase in the likelihood that those experts would recommend products vs. experts who did not engage.
