Kimberly Whitler:Can you provide some background on your business?Justin Kline:Markerly is an influencer marketing agency working with some of the largest consumer brands and advertising agencies in the world to create influencer campaigns on popular social media channels including Instagram, YouTube and TikTok.  

Whitler:Why did you decide to focus on an influencer strategy to drive awareness?Kline:For this campaign in particular, our client Meow Mix wanted to make a big splash on social media to promote the launch of their new Tasty Layers food line. Along with that launch came a vinyl record of Meow Mix jingle remixes — because why not!?

It’s no secret that cat content is, has and likely always will be some of the most popular content on the internet. Not only are there countless cat-owning influencers but just as many influencers who are literal cats themselves. Going with an influencer strategy presented itself as the clearest choice to drive awareness for MeowMix’s Tasty Layers line and catchy, remixed jingles. There are many competitors in the cat food industry, popular cat influencers and creative content that incorporated the latest trends on TikTok and Instagram Reels were a surefire way to cut through the noise

Whitler:What was the process you followed to develop an influencer strategy?Kline:To help Meow Mix stand out from the competition, Markerly targeted humans and cat influencers who really immersed themselves in cat internet culture. Our team also took a close look at account demographics to determine if there was a dedicated follower base consisting of cat lovers and other cat-fluencer accounts who would engage with the post and spread its reach to other interested users. That meant looking at quality of followers and engagements, not just volume. Creativity was also a big component of this campaign - we wanted the cat-fluencers and their humans to really run with the product placements, audio and campaign messaging and put their own spin on it. Creators with a history of fun, silly and engaging takes on the latest trends were a must. This helped us decide which accounts to target, that would not only produce content for the jingle but also promote the new Meow Mix Tasty Layers product to fellow cat lovers.
