RippleXn is delighted to announce joining the UK’s representative trade organisation for Influencer Marketing, the IMTB, as a partner, in support of the IMTB’s professional code of conduct mission that is shaping influencer marketing growth, and providing innovative new tools to its membership.
Recently appointed to CAP, the IMTB is a professional membership organisation dedicated to building a robust, sustainable future for the influencer marketing industry through increased accountability, governance and a unified voice.
Scott Guthrie, Director General, IMTB said: “RippleXn’s technology aligns perfectly with IMTB’s membership and ethos by providing a market-led solution to many of the growth challenges we face as an industry, particularly around the anticipated Online Safety Bill’s regulatory changes and the need for greater oversight when marketing to younger audiences.”
For the past two years, RippleXn has been developing new NLP technologies in stealth with a small number of leading brands, influencer marketing agencies, and in regular consultation with the IMTB.
RippleXn augments current data analysis tools by processing social video content at scale. Time-consuming tasks like reviewing contractual or #Ad declarations are done in the background, enabling teams to focus on bigger, more effective campaigns by understanding what’s contained within the thousands of hours of content being produced for a product launch or by managing more affiliate partners than ever before.
By knowing what’s said, customers gain new insights into their video-based influencer marketing campaigns and greater brand safety. As part of the IMTB partnership, RippleXn will be offering early access to new developments and features to IMTB members, as well as special packages designed to tackle immediate resource and regulatory challenges. “RippleXn’s tech processes video content; the story, what’s said and how it’s said,” offered Adrian Land, co-founder and COO of RippleXn. “There are a million-and-one tools that can tell you how many views your social video campaign got, but until now if you wanted to know what’s said in a video, your team had to physically watch every livestream, VOD or short-form video.” James Beaven, CEO and co-founder, RippleXn, added: “Partnering with the IMTB signifies our resounding support for their goals and commitment to a professional code of conduct. We believe the IMTB will be foundational for growth not only within Influencer Marketing, but the Creator Economy as a whole.”
RippleXn is the first-mover in Social Video platform media listening. Over 2000 hours of new video content is uploaded to Video Sharing Platforms (VSPs) every minute. RippleXn's proprietary NLP tools process 1000s of live, short and long-form influencer videos to identify brand, product and service mentions, analysing for sentiment, and auditing for FTC and ASA ad compliance, to safeguard brands, creator partners, and audiences.
