EMV is an estimate of the amount that would have been spent on a traditional media campaign with the same impact. Influencer marketing encompasses actions such as comments, clicks, shares, plays, or likes on influencer content. In data-driven influencer marketing, EMV is the preferred metric used by marketers to justify the ROI of their campaigns.

“Three years ago, influencer marketing was on the periphery. Now, creators are not just creating the content, they’re helping shape the strategy as we’re seeing more integrated approaches where the campaign starts with the influencer before moving out to other marketing disciplines,” says Influencer Marketing Trade Body director general Scott Guthrie.

Kolsquare conducted the same analysis in France, Italy, Germany, and Spain, revealing striking differences in the popularity and strategy of different brands. You can download the top 100 TikTok fashion ranking report here and the Instagram report here.
