Finding Success with Influencer Marketing in 2021: Strategies for CPG Brands

April 21, 2021 1:00 p.m.

Consumer packaged goods brands have always needed to stand out from the crowd in order to reach market-saturated consumers, and this has been especially true for the food and beverage industry during the past year.

Not only is the playing field more crowded than ever, COVID-19 has changed our grocery buying habits, certainly for the time being and perhaps permanently. Contactless shopping, no more free samples, fewer opportunities to browse in-store and discover new products all have changed the CPG shopping experience and, opportunities for brands to be present. Add to that supply chain disruptions, distrust, social change, lack of access to goods and the result is widespread and significant impacts to marketing.
