LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Revolve Group, Inc. (NYSE: RVLV) announces the launch of its innovative Brand Ambassador program, opening up a broad, community-driven extension of its robust influencer marketing strategy, and establishing what’s next in the social commerce arena for digitally native retailers.
The initiative harnesses the combined influence of REVOLVE’s community, empowering everyday customers to operate as influencers, and get rewarded as they engage with their favorite brands and products. The program offers commissions, and exclusive incentives including early access to new brands, participation in #REVOLVEAroundtheWorld trips, and access to events including REVOLVE Festival.
REVOLVE’s Brand Ambassador program will also offer top sellers the opportunity to create an X REVOLVE capsule collection. This underscores the retailer’s position as a powerful platform for the amplification of brands and influencers, by leveraging data and combining it with expert marketing and production capabilities.
We are incredibly passionate about REVOLVE’s Brand Ambassador program, and the value it will bring to the customer experience. It leverages the combined strengths of REVOLVE: influencer marketing, data, production and brand ideation. With this, we are creating new avenues for our community to exercise the power of influence. - Raissa Gerona, Chief Brand Officer, REVOLVE
REVOLVE’s in-house, proprietary technology facilitates a seamless product-to-social sharing process for verified users of the program. Ambassadors are able to create customized landing pages that operate as storefronts, to which they can add “favorites,” and curate products around specific themes. From these landing pages, individuals link directly to their social channels, allowing them to utilize their platforms and voices effectively to generate earnings from sales.
An initial soft-launch of Brand Ambassadors onboarded over 3,000 members and drew a waiting list of 10,000 applicants. During its nascent period the program has rapidly become one of REVOLVE’s top sources of traffic, generating incremental net sales, and yielding dynamic data insights that will further inform the company’s connection to, and understanding of, its customers and brands for years to come.
