Success Story

Inkbox is a semi-permanent tattoo and accessories company based in Toronto, Canada. The brand leverages fashion-forward nano and micro influencers to run monthly evergreen activations, holiday campaigns, and promotions for new product launches targeted at a Gen Z and young adult audience.

the challenge

So many gifts, so little time

Because Inkbox sent products to so many different creators, the brand needed an efficient way to track which ones posted about them organically. The brand also needed a way to perform outreach at scale, easily generate affiliate links, organize content, and secure necessary content rights.

the goal

Building a community of brand advocates

In October 2022, Inkbox launched a gifting campaign to drive awareness and build positive sentiment for the brand’s new extended Freehand Tattoo Marker collection. By prioritizing about 200 creators who were already Inkbox fans, the team hoped to build a community of brand advocates who could provide honest product endorsements in their own unique way.

“Before GRIN, we only had a certain amount of bandwidth to do all these very tedious tasks. Now we are able to reach out to more creators and have time to scale our program. So we love GRIN here. It’s such a great tool.”

— Britney Dorafshani, Community and Engagement Manager at Inkbox
