While the potential for brand growth is undeniable, simply partnering with influencers isn't a guaranteed path to success without a strategic, long-term approach. Brands need data-driven insights to maximize their return on investment (ROI). Trnd's Advanced Analytics suite delivers exactly that, providing comprehensive reporting across seven key areas. 

Let's explore why reporting across the entire influencer campaign cycle is so crucial:

  • Optimizing Spend: With nearly 60% of marketers planning to increase their influencer marketing spend in 2024 [Source: Influencer Marketing Hub], making the most of every dollar becomes even more critical. Reporting allows you to identify high-performing campaigns and influencers, ensuring you allocate resources effectively.
  • Data-Driven Decisions: Gone are the days of relying on gut instinct. Reporting equips you with concrete data to make informed decisions about everything from influencer selection and content strategy to campaign budgeting and future partnerships.
  • Understanding Your Audience: Influencer marketing thrives on genuine connections. Reporting helps you understand how your target audience interacts with influencer content, allowing you to refine your approach and tailor campaigns for maximum impact.
  • Measuring ROI: At the end of the day, you need to know if your influencer marketing efforts are delivering a positive return. Comprehensive reporting allows you to calculate ROI and assess the effectiveness of your campaigns, ensuring you're getting the most out of your investment.

Trnd offers a new suite of analytics designed specifically for influencer marketing campaigns. These reports deliver valuable insights that can help you optimize your strategies and maximize the impact of your collaborations with influencers.

1. Revenue Report: Track Your Campaign Performance

The Revenue Report gives you a clear picture of how your influencer marketing efforts are performing financially. It shows you the total revenue generated, product sales, creator commissions, and any associated fees. This information can be used to:

  • Calculate your return on investment (ROI): By comparing your revenue to your campaign costs, you can assess whether your influencer marketing efforts are paying off.
  • Identify your most successful campaigns: See which campaigns generated the most revenue so you can learn from their success and replicate it in the future.

Imagine, for instance, a clothing brand leveraging the Revenue Report. They can see a significant percentage increase in revenue compared to the previous quarter after running an influencer campaign. This data confirms the campaign's success and paves the way for expanding it with similar partnerships in the future.

2. Drops Report: Analyze Individual Campaigns

The Drops Report dives deeper into the performance of each individual influencer campaign (drop) on your Trnd platform. It provides key metrics like conversion rates, average revenue generated, new customer acquisition, and the engagement funnel. This information can help you:

  • Understand what's working: Compare the performance of different drops to see which content formats, messaging, and influencer personalities resonate best with your target audience.
  • Identify areas for improvement: See which drops had lower conversion rates or weaker engagement so you can make adjustments for future campaigns.

For example, a beauty brand might discover that drops featuring makeup tutorials led by micro-influencers generate higher conversion rates compared to those showcasing product reviews from macro-influencers with large audiences but low engagement.

3. Creators Report: Evaluate Influencer Performance

The Creators Report helps you understand the impact of each influencer you collaborate with on Trnd. It details their conversion rates, new customer acquisition, number of drops and orders generated, and average revenue and order value. This information allows you to:

  • Identify your top performers: Recognize the influencers who consistently deliver strong results, allowing you to build stronger relationships and prioritize them in future campaigns.
  • Make informed decisions about future partnerships: Analyze data to understand which influencer types (e.g., micro-influencers vs. celebrities) and content styles resonate best with your audience, guiding your influencer selection strategies.

This would be useful in a scenario where a sports equipment brand discovered that a fitness influencer with a smaller, highly engaged following generated significantly higher average order values compared to a more prominent athlete with a broader audience. This data informs the brand's decision to prioritize collaborations with niche influencers who boast strong engagement with their target audience.

4. Products Report: Understand Product Performance

The Products Report helps you understand how individual products perform within your influencer campaigns. It details which creators are promoting each product, the number of drops featuring the product, units sold, and total revenue generated. This information allows you to:

  • Identify your top-selling products: See which products are generating the most revenue through influencer marketing, allowing you to focus your efforts on promoting these products through influencers.
  • Discover hidden gems: Find products that might be underperforming in other marketing channels but performing well with influencer campaigns, allowing you to optimize your overall product strategy.

Those insights could be used by a sustainable clothing brand that noticed that a specific type of eco-friendly water bottle was consistently selling well through influencer partnerships, even though it wasn't one of their top sellers overall. This data would encourage the brand to invest more resources in promoting the water bottle through influencers.

5. Locations Report: Analyze Geographic Performance

The Locations Report provides insights into the geographical performance of your influencer marketing campaigns. It shows you your top order locations, the number of orders from each location, and the top creators driving sales in those areas. This information allows you to:

  • Identify your strongest markets: See which regions are most receptive to your influencer marketing efforts, allowing you to tailor your campaigns to resonate better in those areas.
  • Discover new opportunities: Find regions where your brand awareness might be lower but influencer marketing holds potential, allowing you to expand your reach and tap into new markets.

For a supplement company, noticing that influencer campaigns in coastal cities generate significantly more orders compared to campaigns in rural areas would help inform their influencer strategy. This data helps the brand refine its influencer selection and tailor campaigns to resonate better with coastal audiences, while also exploring potential partnerships with influencers in rural areas to expand their reach.

6. Gifting Report: Measure the Impact of Gifting

The Gifting Report helps you understand the return on investment (ROI) of your gifting campaigns. It shows you the number of gifts sent, drops created from gifts, orders generated from gifts, gifting ROI, and average revenue per gift. This information allows you to:

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of gifting: See if your gifting campaigns are generating a positive return on investment, allowing you to decide whether to continue or adjust your gifting strategy.
  • Optimize your gifting approach: Identify which types of gifts and influencers are most effective in driving sales and engagement, allowing you to refine your gifting approach for future campaigns.

For example, a beauty brand might discover that gifting products to micro-influencers with engaged followings generates a higher gifting ROI compared to established celebrities. This data would inform the brand to focus its future gifting efforts on micro-influencers for a more cost-effective and impactful approach.

7. Socials Report: Analyze Influencer Engagement

The Socials Report provides insights into influencer engagement on social media platforms like Instagram. It shows you the average Instagram engagement per creator, including follower counts, impressions, and reach. This information allows you to:

  • Identify highly engaging influencers: See which influencers are generating the most engagement on social media, allowing you to prioritize collaborations with them in future campaigns.

Understand the impact of influencer content: Analyze how different types of influencer content (e.g., photos, videos, stories) impact engagement, allowing you to refine your content strategy for future collaborations.

Think of a travel company discovering that influencer posts featuring user-generated content (UGC) from their trips garnered significantly higher engagement compared to posts solely featuring the influencer. This valuable insight would encourage the company to partner with influencers who are open to incorporating UGC into their content strategy, fostering a more authentic connection with their target audience.
