How Nykaa's consistent influencer marketing strategy reaps results!
In a most recent case, Nykaa took to influencer marketing to create buzz around the launch of its latest product Clay it Cool mask. The brand collaborated with influencers with a following less than five lakh and was able to garner a reach of more than three million in days from an earned media value pegged between Rs 5-7 lakh.
Consistency, in the long run, is the key to fetching ROI through influencer marketing. The omnichannel beauty and personal care brand Nykaa has always been consistent not just in influencer marketing but it also made sure that it creates long-term partnerships with the influencers on board in order to garner consumers' trust and increase engagement.
In one of the previous interactions with BuzzInContent.com, Madhavi Irani, Chief Officer, Content, Nykaa, said, “Brands need to stop looking at short-term gains and look at the potential to really build trust and loyalty that comes from using an influencer who truly fits the bill. Audiences today can smell a push from a mile off. Only when they see an influencer’s (they look up to) devotion to a brand over an extended period, are they convinced that it is a genuine belief in the product and not fake enthusiasm.”
She further said, “Sticking with an influencer who truly aligns with the brand ethos for prolonged periods makes it far easier to highlight various aspects of the brand offering and appeal to different audience segments. Once brands see the long-term gains of doing so, the situation can be turned around.”
Another thing to be noticed about the brand’s influencer-led content strategy is that it has always had influencers on board who have following less than five lakh. The brand has maintained its relationship with these followers as its working for it. They are giving expected results to the brands resulting in consistent long-term influencers-brand partnerships.

Giving some insights into how brands can fully capitalise on influencer marketing, Irani said, “For brands looking to truly capitalise on an influencer’s reach long term, it’s important for them to use deep metrics and analyse the influencer’s audience demographics, engagement and growth rate to ensure they are making a sustainable choice and that both—the brand and influencer—will continue to grow over time.”
