Like Fiverr did with gigs, Brybe, Inc. is disrupting the Online Advertising industry by democratizing Influencer Marketing with Brybe Marketplace designed for the underrepresented Lower to Mid-level Brands and Influencers to communicate and run every aspect of influencer marketing campaigns in a secure and user-friendly environment. This free full-service platform minimizes fraud via escrow-like deal flow, streamlines orders via influencer-created service packages, and even allows for additional income stream via an integrated affiliate revenue module.
Ranked as #4 among the Top 25 Influencer Marketing Platforms in 2020.
Our multi-faceted growth strategy is designed to maximize new customer acquisition through a combination of organic growth, digital marketing campaigns, and PR.
As online recommendations continue to bolster our increasing success with warm market word-of-mouth exposure (adding 85-100 new registered users to the platform every day since release), we expect a heightened rate of organic growth of our consumer base. We currently have 3,700 active influencers and 370 brands with general audience span of over 200M.
90% of influencer campaigns contain Instagram as part of their marketing strategy. The unique outreach capability of Facebook targets advertising, Brybe will utilize these channels for new influencer acquisition.
LinkedIn’s networking capabilities allows us to target an advertising campaign on the site, combined with Google ads, to capitalize on brand searches for influencers and direct them to Brybe.
With an average return of $5.79 for every $1 spent on earned media in 2019, large brands have capitalized on the powerful outreach of influencers, increasing their engagement by 300%. Paired with changing consumer preferences in digital advertising (80% of consumers buy based on influencer recommendations), the industry is set to exceed $10 billion in 2020.
While the industry is irrefutably growing, the threat of influencer fraud (experienced by 70% of brands) is becoming an even bigger problem. Fear of fraud has left large amounts of capital on the sidelines. With 86% of brands allocating budgets specifically to influencer marketing, the use of Brybe’s platform allows brands to fully employ their influencer marketing budgets. We verify the identity and outreach capability of influencers and make everyone’s job a whole lot easier.
Problem or Opportunity
Due to the entry barriers, majority of lower- to mid-level Brands and Influencers still don’t understand what Influencer Marketing is and how to use it profitably, while the existing solutions are costly, agency/membership based, poorly built and confusing.
The industry is dominated by large companies and mega/celeb influencers.
Solution (product or service)
Brybe introduces an innovative, transparent platform that gives brands and influencers the peace of mind they deserve, with the opportunity to engage authentically and create profitable advertising campaigns.
How we address the problem:
` MINIMAL FRAUD using escrow-like control of order execution and payment for services
` SAFE, spam-free direct communications between verified Brands and verified Influencers
` FREE, secure, user friendly SaaS Marketplace/mobile app listing both Brands and Influencers
` Integrated AFFILIATE PLATFORM with revenue share for Brand and Influencer Referrals
` NO MIDDLEMEN/agencies
Although there are strong performers in the Influencer Marketing Marketplace arena, the leader board barely contains one name, Izea. Platforms that managed to retain the status of Marketplaces are tapping into the 3 Billion user market, sort of like the Wild West pioneers were staking their land claims. What makes us different is that we have analyzed over 1000 providers, and created a platform that is benefiting from the positives of the known tech and none of the weaknesses. We didn't invent the bicycle, we created a much cooler one!
