LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 3, 2020 / Digital Influencer Marketing firm Be Social Group, a subsidiary of Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN), has launched The Kit, a new ongoing service that streamlines organic influencer product seeding for brands. The new service is part of Be Social's Brands Services Division, which specializes in Influencer Marketing, Media Relations, Digital Strategy, and Events.

Be Social first debuted The Kit in September with a curated group of brands including Sunday Riley, Supergoop, and Vanity Planet. The summer-themed box included a complementary collection of beauty products, swimwear, women's accessories, and hair tools, among other items, that were packaged and delivered to 66 beauty, fashion and lifestyle influencers. Within just one month, 588 pieces of content were created for the brands involved, generating over 122 million impressions on social media.

"The Summer Kit was a tremendous success right out of the gate, and it was very clear to us that we could scale this business," said Be Social Group founder and CEO Ali Grant. ""The Kit is a natural addition to our menu of brand services because it provides a highly attractive opportunity to curate and deliver a package of seasonal must-have products straight to the doorstep of our close influencer contacts."

Be Social Group is currently in the final stages of preparing their second edition of The Kit, which will be holiday themed and sent to a group of influencers and creators early this month. Brands such as Arches & Halos, EyeBuyDirect, and The Happy Planner have signed on to be included in the holiday edition box, among other companies in the beauty, wellness, fashion, and lifestyle space.

The Kit streamlines and refines the process of getting products in front of digital tastemakers. Be Social carefully tailors the selection of the targeted influencers, based upon their individual product preferences. This process yields maximum social media engagement for the brands involved because Be Social matches their products with the influencers most likely to post about them.

According to Grant, "This new service is a turnkey solution to get a brand's product in the hands of highly-engaged creators and achieve impactful results at a fraction of the cost of solo outreach. Brands come to us because they don't have the bandwidth to build these relationships with influencers and often find that ‘cold-sending' products doesn't deliver the hoped-for results."

Be Social is in the process of developing the 2021 calendar for The Kit, which will include a core set of quarterly seasonal boxes, as well as themed boxes aimed at niche targets.
