BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TapInfluence (www.tapinfluence.com), the leading influencer marketing platform serving consumer brands and agencies, announced today its partnership with Latina Bloggers Connect, a national network of Latina and Hispanic bloggers, digital influencers and content creators (www.latinabloggersconnect.com). The partnership gives marketers access to more than 2,000 registered influencers who have cultivated large multi-cultural audiences around beauty, entertainment, fashion, food, lifestyle, travel and parenting.
"Hispanics not only lead the general population when it comes to social media, mobile and e-commerce adoption, they are also twice as likely to share content or click on shared content than the general population," says Holly Hamann, co-founder and CMO of TapInfluence. "The partnership was formed in response to the exploding demand among consumer brands for multi-cultural marketing strategies that help them reach the fastest-growing minority consumer group in the U.S."
Marketers are turning to multi-cultural influencers to help create a variety of sponsored content such as images, photographs, videos, custom recipes, and blog posts with expert advice or product recommendations. They are also helping brands create buzz by sharing events, product launches, and social media campaigns.
"Our influencers create content in Spanish, English, or a Spanglish mix in-between and they know their followers and how to maximize the effectiveness of brand campaign on their platforms," says Latina Bloggers Connect founder, Ana Flores. "We understand that brands are searching for ways to authentically connect with markets. And our bloggers and influencers know how to effectively develop those conversations — building trust with an authentic cultural connection." As part of the partnership, Latina Bloggers Connect will power all their influencer marketing programs using the TapInfluence platform.
TapInfluence is an influencer marketing software platform that connects brands to influential content creators on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Vine and blogs. Marketers can instantly search, connect, and collaborate with these market influencers to help scale content reach and distribution to niche ethnic audiences. The company's rapid growth reflects marketers' need for content that is more trusted and authentic to consumers. "Consumers want meaningful content and relevant information to help them make purchase decisions and they want opinions from people they trust. Consumers are having conversations with their peers online way before they make a purchase and to be effective, brands need to be part of that dialogue," said Hamann.
Consumer brands powering multi-cultural influencer marketing programs via the TapInfluence marketplace include Mary Kay, Sears, Marie Callender's, Walgreens, and JCPenney's to name just a few.
