Truth Nutrition X @Stellathelight = Influencer Collaboration Success!

When a great brand and influencer pair together, what you see are quick results. Recently one of our clients, Truth Nutrition, an all natural, vegan pre-workout supplement, and influencer @stellathelight, came together for an epic giveaway collaboration.

 Stella, who is a plant-based health coach and fitness enthusiast, was not only a perfect fit for our client, but was also a positive, and professional partner. For the giveaway, Stella was asked to create a post promoting Truth Nutrition’s Vegan BCCA and she truly exceeded our expectations!

Instead of a simple in-feed post for the giveaway, Stella stepped it up and created a well-directed video showing how she incorporates Truth Nutrition into her diet and in the caption, explained all of the benefits of the product. Her motivation to do a stellar job for the giveaway showed that she is a hard-working partner, and someone we’d like to collaborate with in the future.


Not only did Stella provide excellent feedback and create good quality work, but it also produced great results! Our client saw an uptick of 200 followers, which is significant for an unknown brand and from a single post. This giveaway also earned a reach of 16,861 users and 397 profile visits which represents some solid visibility. The fact that she presented it in a fun and simple usage case, made that even more impactful. This served as an excellent advertisement for how and when to use the product. = Win!

Because Instagram is now saturated with influencers, it has become more and more difficult to find partners who will settle on a reasonable and accurate market price and also provide very solid work. Sircle is always on the hunt for value plays in this arena and this partnership with @stellathelight provided just that. We will most certainly be working with her again!

Video Creative = Increased Reach and Awareness

Screen Shot 2019-08-29 at 11.28.48 AM

As we’ve seen throughout Instagram’s evolution, videos tend to get more engagement than photos. Why is this? When we’re mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, we expect to see a photo. We don’t take much time to look at a post unless it really catches our attention. That’s why when we see something deviant from the norm (in this case, an eye-catching video), we become interested.

Because of mindless scrolling on social platforms (Instagram especially), it’s more important than ever to create engaging creative to stand out from the clutter and generate awareness. When you combine the power of paid social, with the psychology and creativity of a great video, you put your business into a position to win.

At Sircle Media we believe in the power of innovation and being on the forefront of change. That’s why we sat down with one of our content leads, Zach McAdam, to learn more about his approach to creating effective, eye-catching video ads.

Zach says that because many CPG Brands advertise similar products, it’s important to be bold and try and differentiate from the rest. Because of this, Zach has been experimenting with comedy video ads for one of our clients, @TruthNutrition, a 100% natural, vegan fermented BCAA supplement.

He says that many brands like to show how their product is the solution to a problem, but don’t show the actual problem. In his recent Truth Nutrition video ad, he shows a person (attempting) to run on a treadmill but eventually failing, falling face first. He implies that the reason this occurred was that he forgot to take Truth Nutrition. Not only do ads such as these create interest, but they also add a layer of personality and humor. The icing on the cake – adding a call-to-action for the user to move beyond the ad. If you create a video ad where the consumer is curious about what happens next, they’re more likely to follow through on your call-to-action, thus improving your ROI.

When working with in-feed ads, Zach says that bright and/or uncommon colors are a great way to grab attention. Especially in the crowded CPG space, where there are so many products, you have to think outside of the box and go the extra mile to create interest. You can also do this by really showcasing a brand’s personality, which can draw prospects in a little emotionally to who you are and not just what you sell.

Sircle is also always keeping an eye on new areas to test, especially for those clients who are open both financially and conceptually to experimentation. One potential consideration for a brand like @TruthNutrition, which has a target audience of athletes, is Spotify. Here they can serve as a ‘digital billboard’ for those working out in the gym to one of their favorite playlists. While only 40% of Spotify’s users are premium members, 60% are still interrupted by ads while using the app.

In a world where paid social is essential (meaning nothing is really that organic anymore) and video outperforms photography, it should be clear why video ads are so important for your business. It is mission-critical to invest in giving your brand the best chance to succeed both on current platforms (i.e. Instagram) and emerging ones (i.e. Spotify, TikTok, etc.).  The good news is, we can help!
