Emplifi Wins “Influencer Marketing Innovation Award” in 2023 MarTech Breakthrough Awards Program

Prestigious International Annual Awards Program Recognizes Standout Marketing, Advertising, and Sales Technology Around the World

NEW YORK, August 24, 2023Emplifi, a leading unified customer engagement platform, today announced that it’s the winner of the “Influencer Marketing Innovation Award” in the 6th annual MarTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MarTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global marketing, sales, and advertising technology industry today.

Emplifi’s combined product suite enables leading brands to manage User-Generated Content (UGC), Ratings & Reviews, and Influencer Marketing across the buyer journey. With Emplifi, brands can leverage influencer content alongside user-generated content from other shoppers via email, on-site galleries and product page displays, social media, and in-store content. 

In addition, Emplifi’s product tagging capability enables brands to easily identify specific product stock-keeping units (SKUs) using AI-driven visual search, making it easier to tag products in their UGC campaigns. This results in brands having the ability to increase the amount of UGC content in their product discovery galleries (PDG).

"Emplifi Influencer and UGC solutions are as unique as their stance on influencer marketing. Their philosophy is fundamentally different from other platforms. Much of the value of influencer marketing lies in the content created, but oftentimes that content remains siloed to social channels only," said James Johnson, Managing Director at MarTech Breakthrough. "Congratulations to Emplifi for winning the ‘Influencer Marketing Innovation Award.’ Their technology poses partnership discovery as a two-way street, and their Visual Search Powered-Product Tagging streamlines a challenging process with AI doing the heavy lifting."

The mission of the MarTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of marketing, sales, and advertising technology-related categories, including marketing automation, customer experience, performance marketing AdTech, SalesTech, marketing analytics, content and social marketing, mobile marketing, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 19 different countries throughout the world.

"The way brands acquire content for the buyer journey continues to evolve because the modern consumer now prefers content that delivers social proof and authenticity in their interactions with brands," said Mark Zablan, CEO of Emplifi. "At Emplifi, our mission is to enable brands to build long-lasting relationships with the modern consumer. That’s why we’re excited to win the MarTech Breakthrough award for Influencer Marketing Innovations. By bringing together the ability to access and manage influencers, creators, and content created by customers in one platform, we enable brands to cost-effectively captivate their audiences and build sustainable businesses."
