“There are certain [Keyhole] features that we didnt know about before, and they opened a new lens for us to look at campaigns through. One of them is sentiment, which is underestimated.”

This new lens has given Oliwia and her team have a unique approach to selecting influencers: using sentiment to drive decisions alongside common metrics like engagement and reach, and best practices.

“It’s about the feeling and likeability. Especially with content creators like influencers.”

Now, when considering top athletes to connect their client brands with, they
look at sentiment to understand how likeable influencers are in the eyes of their followers.

“But, it’s hard to understand Sentiment just from scrolling through someone’s profile and posts, and it would take you ages to analyze the profile enough to figure out average sentiment. So it’s great that Keyhole does this job for you: basically taking the wording and context of posts and reactions and using the algorithm to analyze the sentiment behind the copy.”

Olivia’s Tips for Choosing Influencers:

When looking for influencers, consider:

  • Is this person heavily commercialized?
  • Does their lifestyle represent the brand?
  • Are their followers in the same demographic as our target audience?
  • Are they likeable?

“At the proposal stage we want to be as efficient as possible when it comes to gathering data. Keyhole is definitely an advantage to save time. Before, we would collect data from each social account or influencer separately and it would take ages. It was in excel files, and as you can imagine everyone has their own way of managing this data. It would be one big mess, whereas now, everything is there.”
