The winning case: How to create a powerful influencer marketing entity by combining perf-influence and brand influence? Rethinking your processes with the Stellar technology
More than ever, the organization of teams in a marketing department must be re-thought. Silo management must be replaced by flexible and collaborative organizations. La Redoute France understood this and with its partner AWIN, they have decided to rely on Stellar technology to rethink the way they use influence in the leading fashion and home goods retailer.
Challenge for La Redoute: creation of an influence brandformance entity
Create synergies in influencer campaigns that have been run for too long in parallel and asymmetrically by two different teams with distinct objectives: the performance team (traffic and conversions) and the brand team (visibility, image). The objective is to eliminate the boundaries between branding and performance in order to be more efficient and remain competitive in the sector. The breakthrough innovation lies in the structural modification of the organization between the different marketing departments of La Redoute.
Solution: change your processes with the Stellar technology
The Stellar platform has enabled La Redoute and AWIN:
- to find and map relevant influencers according to their universe, the audiences they reach and the objectives they can reach (visibility or conversions) while providing a common database to the teams in order to avoid duplicating contacts and actions.
- to organize projects and communications with influencers in a transparent manner for a global view of all teams. The result: industrialization of processes, intensification of collaborations (from 80 partners in December 2020 to 500 in June 2021) and a duplication of actions.
- to make quick cross-platform campaign assessments, with automatic content feedback, and efficient, with a detailed view of the KPIs achieved and cost-effectiveness: by campaign, by social media and by influencer. Results: 1 single campaign for 2 teams and several objectives.

Stellar seen by La Redoute – Interview with Anna Faure, Head of Media at La Redoute
Q: Stellar, failure or success?
Anna Faure: “For La Redoute, it’s clearly a great success because we’ve finally found a tool that allows us to manage our influencer campaigns more effectively, both on the branding and performance side, through the choice of influencers with whom we’ll collaborate, the implementation of campaigns and, last but not least, the performance monitoring.
Q: A real asset in a brand/performance strategy?
AF. : “Stellar is a real asset in our influencer performance strategy, because at La Redoute, we’ve been working on the influencer segment for many years, but each time it was split between two teams: the team that managed the branding part and another team that managed the performance campaigns. Thanks to Stellar, we were finally able to combine these two teams through a common tool that allowed us to monitor the management of our influencer campaigns much more efficiently, between the choice of influencers, the identification and management of campaigns, and the performance monitoring part, which allowed us to monitor all of the actions, both branding and performance, operated by La Redoute, using the same tool.”
Q: What impact did this have on the organization of your marketing department?
AF. : “The implementation of Stellar at La Redoute has also allowed us to better organize our services and our organization within the marketing and communication department. Indeed, we were able to unify our strategies more easily, have common objectives and work much more collaboratively, whether it was in identifying influencers, ensuring that there was only one contact by one person and that there was no duplication in the collaboration, to be able to implement campaigns much more effectively with perhaps common objectives, once again, which could meet branding objectives as well as performance. And last but not least, the performance tracking part, because thanks to Stellar, we can much more easily track all the KPIs that we track at La Redoute, and once again from the more branding KPI’s to the more performance KPI’s and have all that on the same tool to be able to easily share internally, to our management for example.”
