1. Use product seeding with mega influencers like FashionNova
Fashion Nova has grown its brand through product seeding, by partnering with well-known influencers with large followings. The company has enlisted the help of around 5,000 mega-influencers who share content that appears more like a casual conversation with a friend rather than an advertisement.
This marketing strategy has been successful for the fast fashion brand, with the company's founder, Richard Saghian, estimated to have a net worth of $1.4 billion and selling $500 million worth of merchandise in 2021 alone.
2. Build your brand with influencers like Sugar
SUGAR Cosmetics, established in 2015 with only two products, is now valued at $30 billion. The founder's use of influencer marketing was crucial to the company's success, as social media marketing and viral videos helped to propel the brand forward despite its humble origins.
