Gatherr (SID 3752982)

Gatherr

Gatherr allows influencers to create websites to share their favorite products, brand partnerships and affiliates. They build a store, add products from Gatherr’s product catalog and they instantly go live on the influencer’s website for followers to purchase. Gatherr is looking for affiliate products to add to its product catalog.

Gatherr’s audience is typically female fashion influencers with followers from 50 to 500K, between the ages of 25 to 40. The majority of these influencers either reside in the UK or US and their followers tend to mirror this dynamic.

Gatherr splits its influencers into two types, aspirational and inspirational. Aspirational influencers are highly-revered, wealthy and tend to share higher-priced items. Inspirational influencers are more focused on sharing ideas surrounding affordable products, discounts and deals. Both create content around sharing products by way of hauls, outfit inspirations and seasonal must-haves which they feature on their personal blogs, Instagram pages or LikeToKnowIt pages. These influencers don’t just share fashion as there are many overlaps with home, beauty and children verticals.

Gatherr is a direct route for brands to access the audiences of several influencers risk-free. The influencer adds products to their store, shares the product via social media content, and brands pay commissions at conversion.

Gatherr is looking for US/UK-based brands who target female audiences between the ages of 18-40 across home, beauty and fashion verticals. Gatherr needs the brand to provide .csv / data feed / API of their product catalog.
