Influencer Marketing works – just ask Samsung Spain. Thanks to their latest campaign’s hashtag, #SomosSMARTgirl (in English #WeareSMARTgirls), they were able to successfully launch and market several new mobile phones, such as the Samsung Note8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9, to a female target audience.
#SomosSMARTgirl was devised to catch the eye of those who love fashion and design. To do so, they created a series of designs that fit in with the brand’s image and are attractive to consumers. It’s not all material though; through the use of their hashtag, they brand sought to share stories and send a special message with the help of their influencers.
Many influencers participated in the diffusion of the hashtag, but only the following 11 females were chosen to share their stories: Paula Echevarría, Blanca Suárez, Bely Basarte, Beatriz Matallana, Sara Bueno, Bibiana Fernández, Gemma Mengual,Cristina Oria, Esther Holgado, Gemma Reig and Beatriz Gaspar.
The collaborators were not all influencers from the world of fashion, but actresses too, such as Blanca Suárez and Paula Echevarría, who reinforced the brand’s image by posting elegant and attractive content.
Furthermore, not all of the influencers selected for this campaign are necessarily famous, but they’re all real and authentic women who work hard.
The message that Samsung wanted to get across to its target audience is clear; being a SMART girl is about setting yourself challenges, smashing goals, laughing, crying, feeling liberated, but most of all, enjoying life!
Each one of the girls used in this campaign transmitted a different message, sharing their achievements and showing their most authentic side. Many of them have continued to collaborate with the brand for the launch of other mobile phones.
