It's the most wonderful time of the year for marketing, espeically if your brand has an influencer marketing platform in place! While 2017 may be winding down, influencer marketing is continuing to trend up. In fact, according to HubSpot, 71% of consumers are more likely to make a purchase based on a social media reference. Influencer marketing can give brands a more engaging and authentic voice with consumers, especially during the holidays when consumer spending is at its highest

From retailers to beauty brands to toy companies, here are a few of the best holiday influencer marketing campaigns this year.

BECCA Cosmetics: #BECCAScape

This Australian-based beauty brand has a cult-following largely based on the power of influencers. In fact, the brand's rise to notoriety is in part thanks to YouTube vlogger, Jaclyn Hill, who promoted her love for the beauty line in 2015. Now, just a couple years later, the brand continues to make strides in influencer marketing by taking a group of their most influential beauty bloggers on an intimate winter retreat to launch their Après Ski Glow Collection.

Shutterfly: #MyShutterfly

It seems very natural for the photo-printing giant to pair with Instagram influencers to showcase moments of their holiday celebrations. But that's not all.

From gift ideas to holiday cards to party favors, influencers with all types of followings are creating content that shares the range of products that Shutterfly offers.

 

 

Lego: #ShakeUpImagination

This holiday season, Lego launched a holiday campaign, Shake Up Imagination, via TV, online, and of course, social media. An army of influencers took to Instagram to share their families playing and creating together.

 

Macy's: #MacysLove

From flat lays to stories, Instagrammers love to show pretty things in pretty ways. Which is exactly what Macy's is leveraging this holiday season by empowering their consumers with a hashtag to share their purchases and gifts. In conjunction with user-generated content, influencers are jumping onto this hashtag with sponsored content to showcase the many different offerings of the large online and brick-and-mortar retailer.
