What is benchmarking?
Benchmarking is the process of measuring a business’s performance against competitors and your brand's individual, unique campaign performance. Companies benchmark to understand how they are performing and to find areas for improvement to accelerate their successes.
For some brands, influencer marketing is a completely new territory they are considering because they see competitors effectively using it. For them, benchmarking identifies where they are and how they can best differentiate themselves in their approach to influencer marketing.
Other brands have been in influencer marketing for an extended period of time but need benchmarking to stay competitive in the market.
No matter what stage of influencer marketing participation a brand is in, the market is dynamic and understanding where they are positioned compared to competitors and how to best align with influence creators to achieve their goals.
