Authentic Influencer Endorsement Drives Measurable Action in CPG

Tracking online sales is relatively easy but the real story in CPG happens at the supermarket checkout counter. Tracking offline sales — what people are actually putting in their grocery carts — is challenging. Without measurable, attributable, and reliable offline data though, CPG products can’t accurately gauge the success of their influencer marketing programs.

When all is said and done, CPG influencer marketing success begins and ends with finding the right partner.
