Isobar India, the digital agency from the house of Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN), has announced the launch of Isobuzz, a unique solution-based tool that will help map influential people on social media - considered to be subject matter experts across a variety of fields. Launched in association with Qoruz, the agency’s technology partner, Isobuzz will analyse the influencers’ content, the engagement value that they create and their follower-base.
Isobuzz will offer solutions to challenges such as identifying the right set of influencers for a brand, along with their followers. This, in turn, will help the brand understand if the influencers are a match to brand product’s ideal target customers. The tool will also help in measuring the effectiveness of the influencer and the brand’s overall campaign communication strategy.
Commenting on the launch, Gopa Kumar, chief operating officer, Isobar India said: “With all kinds of influencer strategies in place and a lot of them becoming experimental in nature, content still needs to be tailored for the brand’s advantage. Isobuzz has been developed for creative brand advocacy, which will help with quality creation/co-creation of content. With the measurement of influencer marketing becoming more scientific in nature, Isobuzz will focus on mapping the virality-potential of an influencer and the influencer content.”
Speaking about the tool, Aakriti Sinha, national head, Isobar Social said: “Influencer marketing budgets are changing every year. Also, they are constantly driven by ROI and measured for impact and quality. Isobuzz is designed to help with the most important step of influencer discovery. After all, brands are choosing their influencer associations as carefully as their brand ambassadors, especially on social media. Measurability in this case becomes imperative, and as we build content around influencers with brand integrations, Isobuzz will give a detailed analysis of influencer content performance along with their follower-base understanding and whether or not the association has had the desired impact.”
Praanesh Bhuvaneswar, chief executive officer, Qoruz mentioned: “Brands are heavily reliant on story-telling based narratives to attract the attention of audience, and influencer-centric strategy is pivot in these instances. At Qoruz, we believe in a data-first approach to influencer-planning and ideation. In our initial discussions with Isobar, we realised Isobar’s strong intention to set a new standard as a creative-tech firm by launching Isobuzz for influencer marketing. This sets an example for the marketers of the country for a scientific approach towards influencer space. The team at Qoruz is very excited to partner with Isobar on this initiative of bringing Isobuzz solution to brand partners of Isobar and up the advocacy game!”
