Social Soup launches gamified influencer app with CUB signed on as exclusive partner

Social Soup has launched an influencer app with Carlton United Breweries signing on as an exclusive partner.


The influencer marketing agency says it will use the new platform to manage its operations and expand its offering to clients with enhanced campaign management and richer data analytics.

The purpose-built app will provide Social Soup’s influencer community with improved access to campaigns and easier sharing of content with the app featuring a gamified system which allows members to earn points, levels and achievements in an effort to keep them more engaged and motivated.


Social Soup will be expanding its offering to the market as the app rolls out with live reporting on social impact, voucher delivery to pick-up products and real-time research.

CUB has entered into a partnership with Social Soup across all its cider launches this summer across key festivals, events and summer moments, igniting an army of influencers behind its new brands.

The first launch with the app will be for Pure Blonde Cider which will see influencers sharing the new product over summer.
