Influencer adverts from lifestyle brands performed best in March with highly stylised photography out-engaging everything else. The Y2K look continues to reign and fashion brands are doing the best job in terms of commissioning influencer content that really delivers audience interest.
Notes on March 2022’s best performing influencer adverts:
- Beauty tutorials with an eye on Spring were well received, and even better if they included a discount code for consumers.
- There was a rare appearance from a finance brand in March with Revolut being the 11th most engaging advert of the month.
- Influencers who are talented stylists have greater value than ever with those who can create or riff on an aesthetic creating the most positive engagement in March.
