Fairtrade’s Influencer Campaign

@begoodorganics Fairtrade #stand4fairness


The Fairtrade #stand4fairness campaign had an important message to share.

Millions of farmers who produce the food we eat don’t earn enough to feed their own families. Influencer helped change this by showcasing how to take a stand for producers in developing countries while encouraging their followers to do the same.

Influencers were asked to show how they #Stand4Fairness in developing countries by including the concept of “4” in their posts. Whether it was four people, four products or the number four, the message was clear!


The goal for Fairtrade was to generate as much awareness as possible for their social message and build momentum around the topic of fair trade goods.

The influencers helped reach a diverse audience with the 25-34 demographic making up 39% of all engagement and the 18-24 age demographic making up 34% of all engagement.

To help increase engagement the influencers also used #Stand4Fairness which was a part of a larger campaign. By using the hashtag in conjunction with an instagram challenge, the influencers were able to inspire their audiences to post #Stand4Fairness content of their own, resulting in some awesome user generated content.

By giving the influencers some creative freedom, they were able to tell a story of their own and explain how Fairtrade was important to them and their families through their captions. This type of authenticity and content collaboration can go a long way in regards to reaching consumers.

Overall the campaign included influencers made up of family/parent influencers, chefs and athletes who are mostly micro influencers, which helped Fairtrade leverage the deep and authentic relationships that the influencers held with their respective audiences.

Super Rugby 2017: Influencer Campaign

With the Super Rugby kicking off in April, we teamed up on a campaign to build hype around what has turned out to be a very hype-worthy season.

It was all about getting fans pumped to watch their team play and to create some noise around the games: not just the rugby, but the wider occasion, too. Super Rugby connected with six Social Club rugby aficionados who posted some awesome content in support of their favourite teams.

Across Instagram posts + stories & Facebook posts, Social Club influencers achieved a 29.6% engagement rate, including 19.5k likes and 230 comments. Even Waisake Naholo could chant about that!









With the challenge of generating a high level engagement and to encourage fans to attend the games, authenticity was key in connecting with all those rugby fanatic followers.

Keeping the content as organic as they could, influencers personalised their message, capturing moments of them supporting their favourite teams. This authentic approach proved to resonate well with their followers across the board.








We credit the success of this campaign to the creative, authentic content that The Social Club influencers made for the campaign. The stats really speak for themselves and the collaborations were met with an awesome response from all audiences.

Influencers, keep your eyes peeled on the platform for the sporting competition and team opportunities that we have coming up!

M&M’s Crispy Mint Campaign


To promote their new, limited-edition Crispy Mint flavour, M&M’s connected with 14 pumped up fans from a wide variety of content types.

Overall it was a hugely successful campaign with unreal content created and an overall engagement rate of 12.6%.

The goal of this campaign was to generate excitement arounf M&M’s new crispy mint flavour – by keeping it fun, real & creative. Influencers shared images of their own favourite ways to enjoy M&M’s, with almost total creative freedom. To help people interact with their favourite treat online, our Influencers provided links to the M&M’s NZ Instagram account.

Fans loved the eye-catching content showing so many ways to enjoy the sweet treat, and they expressed nearly endless excitement about the new flavour.

This campaign generated heaps of excitement about the new crispy mint flavour, bags of M&M’s flew off the shelves after it launched.

The sentiment was positive, fans loved the shared recipes and were inspired to try out their own versions. Fans also related to the athletes in the campaign, they loved to see that their favorite athletes enjoy a sweet treat just like they do!

In the end, the true highlight of the campaign was seeing everyone’s childlike excitement about a new flavour of chocolate…because who doesn’t love chocolate?!

In turn creating some awareness and direction to purchase!

Everyone loves a good food gram!

Our goal was to create a buzz on Instagram and inspire viewers to try out their own recipes, in turn creating brand awareness for Exotic Foods.

We had our domestic goddesses in their kitchens cooking up a storm and plating up some beautiful dishes for the viewers to drool over. The engagement from viewers was encouraging, with everyone wanting to know the recipe details for their own dinner that night. Success!

Check out some of their creations below…

“Was craving a good old Pad Thai tonight, I had never made one before and always had in my head it would be a lot harder than it was, in reality it was super simple and tasted even better than a shop brought one plus I knew exactly what I was putting into it which is a definite bonus. I cheated a bit with @exfoodnz Pad Thai sauce- but this made it far quicker and was super tasty.
Such yummy fresh flavours can tell this will be my go to when I feel like a takeaway style dish! #exoticfood
