The Objective

Engaging New Moms & Young Minds With Curated Activities

KiwiCo develops engaging hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) projects and activities to spark curiosity and creativity aimed to inspire a lifetime of learning. With award-winning products for kids of all ages, KiwiCo has shipped over 50 million activity crates worldwide. Each crate is thoughtfully developed by experts — thoroughly tested by kids — and designed to inspire new discoveries and experimentation.

As early adopters of creator-led content, the in-house marketing team at KiwiCo had the knowledge and experience to see the value in influencer marketing. So the brand decided to work with Later Influence to help scale their influencer marketing program, including their latest campaign to drive more awareness and conversions for the KiwiCo Panda Crate line designed for 0-36-month-olds.

The brand wanted to specifically work with creators who represent their target audience, including mothers with newborns and toddlers, as well as expecting mothers. The team also hoped that by tapping into their target audience, they would uncover new talking points for storytelling about the KiwiCo Panda Crate.

“We needed something easy to implement and manage, and that also wasn't a huge strain on our resources and costs — and Later Influence did just that.”

The Solution

Streamlining Influencer Search to Find Champion Creators

KiwiCo tapped the Later Influence Services team to help carry out their KiwiCo Panda Crate initiative, from influencer outreach to negotiations and execution. The brand decided to boost posts across both Meta and TikTok — knowing that they had previously seen a lot of success with creator content on TikTok, which could be re-shared on Meta platforms.

Influencer outreach & negotiations

The KiwiCo team had Later help guide them through the entire influencer search, outreach, briefing, and booking process. The brand wanted to work with authentic creators because they perform better, and knew they could reuse and repurpose their content.

The Later team used their expertise to source and create a shortlist of recommended influencers to share with the brand, who then helped to narrow down and select the influencers used in the campaign. The Later team also helped with negotiations to reduce back-and-forth with influencers, helping the KiwiCo team save extra time.

Finding champion creators

It was very important for the brand to work with influencers who genuinely matched with the KiwiCo brand and enjoyed their products. This also helped cross off the brand’s goal of finding influencers who could speak about their products in a new, authentic way — instead of giving creators specific messaging to post about.

Later helped the team find what they eventually called their “champion creators”, who shared UGC content using the KiwiCo Panda Crate paired with their own unique messaging and personal, fun take.

Unlimited content usage rights

The KiwiCo team wanted to find creator partners that they could continue working with regularly and also wanted to be able to repurpose and reshare their content across different platforms.

The Later Influence platform was the perfect solution because they were able to specifically filter and work with creators who allowed for content usage rights in perpetuity — meaning KiwiCo owns the rights to their content and can repurpose and re-post it across channels indefinitely.

“We’re able to easily find creators who allow for content rights in perpetuity, so we can easily repurpose & repost their content across platforms without extra costs. No other platforms offer this.”
