This is the case study you've been waiting for.
We all know that running successful social media channels takes a ton of work and a robust strategy to boot. Most people think it's all fun and games, but the truth of the matter is that it takes a lot of effort to make it look effortless. The accounts that get it make our eyes widen and our ears perk up.
That is certainly the way REVOLVE operates. The Los Angeles-based e-tailer took its operations to entire new heights by leveraging social media and focusing particularly on Instagram. I meannnnn.😍 Can you blame us for wanting to dig into it?
To provide a quick recap: REVOLVE essentially hopped onboard the influencer marketing train very early, quickly realizing that using young cool girls to promote their cute threads was a super effective way to reach their target demographic.

The REVOLVE game plan progressed into super chic activations across the globe (#REVOLVEaroundtheworld), making a major bang by telegraphing big fun. These campaigns became and integral component of their Instagram marketing strategy, helping them boost brand awareness, organic reach, and ultimately, sales. By selecting the cream of the crop of Instagrammers with substantial social influence, their epic parties actually stemmed from serious strategy.
