Some of Australia’s top online retailers have developed a new initiative that identifies and celebrates a new wave of online icons, aka “influencers”, given their impact on the wonderful world of e-Commerce, and in our everyday lives today.
A brand new iconic awards program will be launching in Australia this week to hail the mighty influencer. Australia’s Top 50 Influencer Awards will not only recognise, but also celebrate the modern type of small business and online influencers in Australia today.
No one segment in today’s health and wellness, fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle industries have amassed more power and legitimacy this year than the “influencers.” This group of social media megastars have challenged the thinking of brands, retailers and publications, to reconsider who it is in today’s world that truly moves the product and the needle, when it comes to effective marketing and influential power.
Online retail giant MyDeal.com.au in partnership with hotel and accommodation e-Commerce platform Trivago, TheRight.Fit and Nova 100 is launching the Influencer Awards, and the judging panel including entrepreneur and chief executive of ShowPo, Jane Lu, and a number of media industry heads from The Australian Financial Review, Cosmopolitan Australia and Nova 100 to name a few.
The awards celebrate the success and impact of Australian online influencers across social media platforms including Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, and personal blogs. As one of Australia’s largest up and coming awards ceremonies, they oversee online influencers across health and fitness industry, beauty, fashion, lifestyle and parenting.
“Whilst many award programs exist to celebrate traditional business successes, they are yet to highlight a rapidly evolving segment of the digital economy; the online influencer”, says Sean Senvirtne, chief executive officer of MyDeal.com.au.
“Major brands have created large campaigns based around influencer marketing. Global advertising and public relations agencies are making sure their clients are strongly considering influencer components for major campaigns. It’s time we acknowledged the best influencers in a more structured way.”
Registration to be in the running open on the 12th of December 2017. The winner will be announced in an editorial on Nova 100 and other media, receive $1000 voucher for Trivago to spend on any hotel room in the world, $1000 spending cash from MyDeal.com.au and a lifetime TheRight.Fit membership. The top 10 will also be announced on Nova and will receive a goodie bag with some iconic treats.
