Karlie Kloss in those WiX commercials I always see on Youtune… urgh. I’m 100% sure she doesn’t create her own websites. She has minions for that surely??

Elana Afrika in the new desperate OutSurance campaign. So incredibly unsubtle too, as she used to work with Katlegoe Maboe on Expresso, and left quite suddenly

Sindi Dlathu being one of my favourite actress and Sho-Madjozi who’ve been so great in the entertainment industry. The Nivea Q10 face cream is incredibly doing amazing by using the hot stars at the moment.

Almost all of the influencers that were pushing the SAB campaign! Posts were all the same, and significantly different to previous posts made by influencers. Things got even worse when the script was leaked on twitter, exposing all the influencers and how they posted the same content.

SAB’s influencer campaign as part of their response to the booze ban. They did not disclose they were being paid, and all of their comms were a cut and past job. It’s a pity – this could have worked well if they rather used the influencers to drive strong responsible drinking messages to their audiences and fans. And then used social media to also tell the stories of the entrepreneurs and small businesses negatively impacted by the ban.

HUGGIES SA – Every new mom celeb promoting Huggies nappies was truly a snore. There’s evidently no brand standards for their Instagram posts, I don’t think anyone even checks to approve. Literally, if you’re about to be a new mom, Huggies SA will pay you to post. They actually made the competition look desirable and elite for babies bums.

Can anyone say SAB? What was that? That’s what happens when you just plonk influencers everywhere without thinking about your content strategy
