Influencer marketing platform HypeAuditor has released data revealing the brands that have received the highest number of organic and paid tags or mentions on Instagram from influencers during the fast half of the year.
The data reveals that department stores such as Kmart, Target and Big W and Australia’s top supermarkets Woolworths and Coles lead the pack when it comes to influencer marketing. Kmart Australia tops the list with 2.79k mentions by more than 700 influencers, followed by Woolworths raking in 2.05 mentions from 616 influencers.
The influencer marketing industry, according to HypeAuditor data, is set to be worth over $22 billion by 2025, therefore presenting an enormous opportunity for brands and influencers alike.
Only three of the Top 10 are fashion brands with Glassons, Princess Polly Boutique and Aimn Oceania ranked 7th, 8th and 9th respectively. It’s a sharp contrast to the UK where 9 of the top 10 brands are fashion retailers including ASOS, Zara, H&M and Shein.
Although Bunnings Warehouse is ranked 10th for the first half of 2022 with 367 influencers sharing 863 mentions on Instagram, the hardware giant may climb up that list for the second half of the year following its recent influencer marketing push to target Gen Z Australians amid soaring house prices.
Full details of the top ten, including reach, followers, mentions and the number of influencers promoting them, can be found here:
|Rank||Account||Followers||Mentions||Number of influencer posts between 1 Jan – 30 June 2022||Reach|
|8||Princess Polly Boutique||2.29m||856||403||1.85m|
