Success Stories🎊

Background: Emerging Ag is a Canada-based boutique consulting firm that provides communications and public affairs services to clients in the agriculture, food, and health industries. It partnered with Global Dairy Platform to celebrate World Milk Day on June 1 for 3 consecutive years.

Problem: The team at Emerging Ag initially tried hashtag tracking manually. However, getting accurate and in-depth metrics around these keywords was tough. Manual tracking also limited them to monitoring lesser keywords.

Process: After using Keyhole, they tracked more than 250,000 posts from May 29 to June 1. They tracked the impression growth and changed sentiments on a year-on-year basis.

Result: Emerging Ag coordinated a worldwide social media campaign that garnered 842 million impressions on social media for #WorldMilkDay, #EnjoyDairy, and local hashtags in 40 translations.
