However, just take a look at what others are doing, how simple and natural it is for them, and see if it could work for you too!


5 Examples of Influencer Marketing paid campaigns done right:

1. Lays Romania

Lays Romania worked with local influencers for their mission to spread millions of smiles by releasing specially designed bags featuring infectious smiles in support of a life-changing cause. For every purchase of the Lay’s specially designed bags, a donation was made to a Romanian NGO: Teach For Romania, I’Velo by Green Revolution, Asociația Adi Hădean or Let’s Do It, Romania!

The campaign aimed to get people talking about Lays, using the @lays_romania sticker link and the Instagram hashtag #daruiestezambete. The brand set specific quantitative and qualitative requirements in their influencer selection. These included: minimum 1000 followers, minimum 5% engagement levels, proven past performance, meeting authenticity requirements.

Ultimately, they selected and worked with over 2k local influencers for the campaign – each one creating at least one authentic Instagram story. The local influencers generated >4000 pieces of unique branded content, having an organic impact of almost 1 million and reaching a great community engagement of approx. 14%.
