First, let’s talk about Stanley Cup, originally designed for rugged outdoor activities. The journey began with an Instagram post by The Bu Guide, three women who loved the product. Their post turned Stanley into a social media sensation, with influencers and celebrities like Olivia Rodrigo and Jessica Alba joining the trend. The result? Stanley Cup’s revenue skyrocketed from $70 million to over $750 million.

On the flip side, we have Solo Stove, which pulled out the big guns by bringing in Snoop Dogg for a high-profile ad. While the campaign was clever and catchy, it didn’t significantly boost sales. The lesson here is that the objective of the marketing campaign matters. Simply having a celebrity endorsement doesn’t guarantee success. It’s crucial to align goals with key performance indicators (KPIs) and track them over time.

When considering influencer or celebrity collaborations, it’s essential to understand your audience and align your objectives. Whether it’s sales, awareness, or branding, each approach requires a different strategy. Additionally, consider the price point and the actual use of the product. In the case of Stanley Cup, influencers started the trend, and celebrities followed suit. However, for Solo Stove, the strategy relied heavily on a big celebrity endorsement.

In conclusion, the power of influencer or celebrity marketing lies not just in endorsing a product but in how and to whom they’re speaking. Stanley Cups became a lifestyle icon through relatable, authentic influencer marketing, while Solo Stove’s approach missed the mark. So, as you plan your influencer campaigns or celebrity endorsements, remember to align your objectives, track performance, and give it time to unfold.

As I wrap up today’s episode, remember that understanding your audience and genuinely connecting with them is the key to marketing success, whether you’re a big player or a small business.
