Testimonials

Forrester Study: The Total Economic Impact™ of GRIN 5
Senior Social Media Specialist, Retail

“I think why our team loves GRIN so much is because they focus on communicating with influencers and relationship building. GRIN prioritizes getting to know your influencers. That’s something that has improved our [sales] funnel.”

Chief Marketing Officer, Retail

“Without GRIN, I can try to access new audiences, but the CPM (cost per thousand impressions) can range from $24 to $45. With GRIN, I can find creators that are super qualified, reach millions of people, and want to do a deal with me for free merchandise.”

Marketing Manager, Entertainment

“Now, because of GRIN, we’ve proven that influencer marketing is a ‘thing,’ and we need to budget for it accordingly. We have steadily turned it into a yearlong program and increased our budgets for both advertising and content creators. It’s made my job a much, much happier place to be.”

The full ROI of GRIN goes beyond the numbers. 

We love hard numbers. But some of GRIN’s greatest strengths are hard to put a price tag on. 

According to the Forrester study, our customers also experienced: 

  • Increased brand presence and improved brand sentiment
  • Cost savings from more effective negotiations with creators. 
  • Broadened influence of business insights garnered through the creator program.
