How Fitcrunch Gained 23K Followers by Engaging Influencers on Keyhole

FITCRUNCH® IS THE FITNESS COMPANY known for FITCRUNCH® Baked Bars–inspired by world-renowed chef Robert Irvine and FortiFX founder Sean Perich.

Like many other businesses, FITCRUNCH® started with traditional marketing. A $14,000 budget on print ads for example, would amount to about 100,000 e-mail subscribers. Soon, the company’s marketing strategy expanded to include social media marketing and influencer marketing.

Influencers

The company started working with Keyhole to engage with influencers (you can do this through the influencer tab in your dashboard), in order to expand and engage their customer base, eventually also using the tool to measure their impact.

Since launching their influencer program with Keyhole, FITCRUNCH® has found and engaged with around 20 new influencers a month. This allows the company to get the word out about new flavours they are testing and the latest news and promotions.

Alerts

Alerts also notify FITCRUNCH® when specific users, or users with more than [x] number of followers posts using their hashtag, keyword or handle. This allows the marketing team to repost this top user-generated content to their accounts to drive buzz to their social campaigns.

“Alerts is my personal favorite. When NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. tweeted he was having a FITCRUNCH® bar, we were able to jump on it and capture the buzz in real-time.”

Social Listening

An important aspect of FITCRUNCH®’s marketing strategy involves social listening, or using social media to get to know your audience. The company looks at trending conversations among its audience using Keyhole’s word cloud when making strategic decisions. Reminder: The word cloud shows you other Keywords and Hashtags that users included in posts alongside the term you’re tracking. Here’s the word cloud for #fitcrunchbar:

FITcrunch-keywords

Via Keyhole

“We rely on the world cloud to identify trending conversations, so we can include them in our posts and attract new target audience. For instance, when searching for our protein bar #fitcrunchbar, the word cloud showed that ‘snack’, ‘chocolate’, ‘butter’, ‘peanut’ as trending keywords. This gave us insights on what customers may like as new protein bar flavours.”

Case in point: When FITCRUNCH® launched a new protein bar flavor called birthday cake, they were able to use the word cloud and see certain retailers popping up. This helps FITCRUNCH® to make strategic decisions such as which retailers to partner with.

As the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities, the Special Olympics represent more than 4.9 million athletes, alongside 1 million volunteers across the world. They began to use the real-time social analytics platform Keyhole to capture the social buzz around their 2015 World Summer Games in Los Angeles.

How Keyhole Helps

Keyhole’s Dashboard allows Ryan and his social media team to watch the social action of the Special Olympics unfold in real-time, with context-aware Posts that sort audiences based on follower count and engagement. This provides his team with insight into who is truly a “Social Ambassador.”

While monitoring social media action is a top priority, the social team at the Special Olympics also monitor and organize all celebrity endorsements and ambassador work, which allows the team to be far more robust when planning how social activations roll-out.

When Ryan’s team tapped model and actress Brooklyn Decker to work with the Special Olympics, they used Keyhole to see exactly how much engagement and conversions were being driven by her efforts on social. Combining influencer marketing with celebrities as well as social media stars allows Ryan and his team to really drive at what is the most optimal investment for social, year after year.

In a noisy social climate, being able to really drive home the organization’s importance is a top priority. Using Reports generated from Keyhole’s Tracker Dashboard, as well as custom reports infused with data from Keyhole’s API (available on certain Plans) allows the Special Olympics team to ensure that they “maintain steady growth.”

How The United Nations Gains Consumer Insights with Keyhole

Every Woman Every Child is an unprecedented global movement that mobilizes and intensifies international and national action by governments, multilaterals, the private sector and civil society to address the major health challenges facing women and children.

Every Woman Every Child was launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Summit in September 2010.

The movement puts into action the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, which presents a roadmap to ending all preventable deaths of women, children and adolescents within a generation and ensuring their well-being.

The Challenge

Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) is a UN initiative aimed at reducing maternal and child mortality, and improving health overall. Much of their work focuses on advocacy, and helping people to understand why the health of women and children is critical to societies. As part of this, they needed to understand who they were reaching on social media, and how they could measure the success of their strategies.

The Questions

The social media team at Every Woman Every Child was kind enough to share with us their goals on social and what they hope to accomplish with their various initiatives. A key component of effective messaging was getting a grasp on their truly global audience- Where are these people from? What devices do they use to access and engage with our content?— while also capturing and mobilizing this data so that they make effectively drive their campaign forward.

  • What is our demographic split in terms of geography, gender, sentiment?
  • Are we reaching enough men and boys as well as women and girls, and if not then how can we improve?
  • What devices are people using to access content?
  • How effective are our partnership engagements?

How Keyhole Helps

With Keyhole, Erin and Nada can track real-time data to easily assess their social media engagement. This allows them to measure the most important metrics to them, such as:

  • The demographic of people engaging with their posts and their mission
  • The effectiveness of partnership engagements
  • The geographical reach of their social media presence
  • The ways in which people are accessing their content

“In terms of users’ demographics: geographic location, gender, sentiment, Keyhole has the best balance of everything we want.”

Keyhole Customer Success Story Grand Hyatt Social Listening Consumer Insights Social Media Analytics

How the Team at The Grand Hyatt NY Optimizes Travel Experiences with Keyhole

“Our customers are what matter most, and Keyhole reporting and software grants me the ability to elevate their travel experience better than ever before.”

Building an audience. And a reputation.

With increased pressure from factors such as Airbnb and added hotel room inventory in the New York City market, the already-ferociously competitive hospitality industry has to come up with innovative, unorthodox ways to help leverage their brand and capture additional in-house revenue. Combined with an audience that is already eager to share their experience, Hanna and her team of marketing experts have built a robust social listening operation surrounding the hotel’s hashtag, #LivingGrandNYC.

“When it comes to tracking our various hotel hashtags, Keyhole is far and away the best platform available… it came highly recommended at various digital conferences I’ve attended and from corporate colleagues I work with.”

Hannah-Bankston-Grand-Hyatt-NY--1
Hanna Bankston
Digital Marketing Manager, Grand Hyatt New York

How Keyhole Helps

Automatic weekly recaps help Hanna report to her property’s senior management team to ensure they have a sense of how their campaign is performing.

“Weekly Keyhole reports show me what UGC and hotel-curated content has reached the most people in addition to which posts have the highest engagement; more importantly, they ensure future development of a seamless brand experience and a positive, trustworthy business/consumer relationship. This strategy intends to translate into a conversion which satisfies a need and helps establish trust, creating a loyal customer base – the backbone of any business.”

Alerts notify Hanna and her team at Grand Hyatt when there’s a spike in activity — like when the Reverend Jesse Jackson visited the hotel, and helped her team drive almost 4 million impressions with a single tweet; otherwise unmeasurable if it weren’t for Keyhole’s suite of products and services.

Social Listening enables Hanna’s team to monitor posts and sentiment and ensure a quality impression is left with every one of their guests. Tracking sentiment, the origin of negative messages on social media, and all awesome moments is what modern, social powered marketing is built on.

“Keyhole gives me a strategic look into what my customers’ interests are, where they spend their time while on-property, and their overall sentiments regarding their NYC travel experience.”

You’re already giving your audience something to share. Now make sure you’re keeping track of it.

7 Holiday Ads That Dominated Social Media [2016 Edition]

We may know it as the season to be jolly, but for advertisers the holidays are a time of cutthroat competition.

Blockbuster-quality seasonal ads are part of a longstanding tradition, with many companies investing millions of dollars each year (just look at retailer John Lewis, who spent $8.7m on their 2015 slot alone). Ultimately, they know it’s a smart investment: the National Retail Federation predicts this year’s holiday spending to exceed $650 billion in the US alone, and the right ad can be key to directing those funds your way.

2016 saw an impressive number of holiday ads go viral, with contributions coming from seasoned veterans (we’re looking at you, John Lewis) and newcomers (well-played, Allegro) alike.  To see how this year’s ads stacked up, we used Keyhole to dig into what the people of Twitter have to say. Instead of focusing on view count, we decided to rank the Top 7 ads based on social buzz (and we’re glad we did – take a look at #4!)

Influencer Marketing 101 – How to Find the Right Influencers

Influencer Marketing is a form of marketing where the focus is placed on key individuals who can influence the buying decisions of the target market. 


A 2010 study by the McKinsey Quarterly team found that “
marketing-induced consumer-to-consumer word of mouth generates more than twice the sales of paid advertising.” This positive impact seems to be lasting – the same study found that customers acquired through word-of-mouth had a 37 percent higher retention rate.

Although this study focused on word-of-mouth marketing, there are many parallels between influencer marketing and word of mouth. Your brand’s advocates review and promote the products or services you offer, which becomes a form of a direct recommendation.
