What examples can you give of accounts that have grown a lot through this type of approach?

Previous approach:

A skincare brand might have sent products to influencers with large audiences, hoping they would simply mention them in their posts. These mentions were often superficial. Although they could reach many people, they did not generate genuine engagement or educate the audience about the real benefits of the product.

New focus:

The brand chooses to collaborate with micro-influencers, influencers and content creators who not only have followers interested in skincare, but also share detailed knowledge and personal experiences on the topic.

Education and awareness:

The brand collaborates with dermatologists and skincare experts who create educational content about the ingredients, benefits, and proper application methods of their products. They post explanatory videos that break down the properties of active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and how each can benefit different skin types.

Authenticity and transparency:

Influencers share their skincare routines, showing before and after using the brand’s products and speaking honestly about their experience and results.

Videos are posted showing the product development and testing process, highlighting the brand’s commitment to safety and efficacy.

Interactivity and participation:

Live sessions where followers can ask questions to dermatologists and skincare experts.

The brand launches challenges on social media, inviting followers to share their skincare routines using the products, and holds raffles selecting winners to give away products.

Visually appealing content and narratives:

-Step-by-step tutorials and videos are created on how to integrate skincare products into a daily routine, adapting to different skin types and needs.

-Personal stories are shared narrating the process towards healthier skin and how the brand’s products helped them solve specific problems.

This more authentic and educational approach not only improves confidence in purchasing decisions, engagement and loyalty among followers, but also establishes the brand as an authority in the skincare field. Consumers value transparency, education and effort when it comes to caring for their skin or any issues they may have.

How to put a mark without the account “losing its natural value”?

It is essential to integrate the brand in an authentic way. First, the content must remain valuable and relevant to the audience. Instead of just promoting products or services, you should show how these can improve the lives of followers. For example, using tutorials, tips, solving a problem that you identified the audience has, entertaining, inspiring, showing success stories.

Additionally, it is important to keep the brand voice and tone consistent and genuine. Let the publications reflect the personality and values ​​of the brand without seeming too commercial. Collaborations with influencers who truly connect with the brand and its audience can also be effective, as long as these collaborations feel natural and not forced.

Finally, encouraging interaction and listening to the community is key. Responding to comments, asking questions, and showing genuine interest in followers’ opinions and experiences helps maintain a close relationship and preserve the original value of the account.
