As an early adopter of influencer marketing, Zapwater is an experienced ally when brands wish to harness the power of influencers. We analyze reach, engagement, authenticity, relevance, and resonance to recommend influencers on a paid or earned partnership level, who will complement a brand and successfully increase awareness amongst the right audiences. From initial outreach to partnership agreements, our longstanding relationships with micro to macro talent in a variety of verticals allow us to effortlessly navigate the influencer landscape and ensure partnerships are tailored for optimal results. Our marketing savvy within this area has also allowed us to deploy influencer strategies that provide measurable results and drive purchases through affiliate programs.
