The business case for employee advocacy

Senior marketers are familiar with a changing landscape:

  • Brand transparency and trust issues are a huge concern for consumers
  • Use of ad blockers continues to increase and paid media is now less and less effective
  • Organic social is nearly non-existent, while Facebook now prioritises posts from friends and family
  • Influencer advertising is not the same as influence marketing - popularity is not the same as real influence

Employee advocacy offers a route through. Compared to brands themselves or CEOs, employees exhibit a high degree of trust in their personal networks, so are able to influence and change behaviour.

By adopting a tech-enabled employee advocacy programme, brands are able to scale up activity through their brand ambassadors to achieve a massive increase in reach and engagement for major business growth.
