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.”

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.”

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.
