We brought the Keelings farm directly to their consumers, at Bloom 2017, by introducing them to a 360 VR tour.
Located in North Dublin, our client wanted to capture the passion and innovation that goes into growing their delicious berries.
We were presented with the unique challenge of filming the growing stages of their fruit over a 3 month period. By working with Keelings and their growers, we showcased the growing methods to bring Irish fruit from farm to fork. Keelings also wanted to tell the story of their dedication to expanding the Irish growing season through innovation.
The end result was a 360 video which allowed customers to experience a day in the life of a berry at the Keelings farm. Bubble also managed a partnership with Samsung Ireland to bring the 360 experience to Bloom 2017 with Samsung Gear VR.
The modern-world has evolved into an era of online social interactions, so it is only natural that the social media landscape has become a real battle-zone as each company vies for our time and attention. The new kid-on-the-block could also be the next big-thing, so complancency could prove the ultimate death sentence for any company, regardless of their current status in the market.
With all this in mind, we take a look at the current social media landscape in Ireland – who is currently king of the hill & who is making inrodes at the competitions expense?
Firstly, it is no surprise to see Facebook remain as the nation’s number 1 online social destination, with a market penetration of 64%. The battle for second position is much harder to call however, with Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + & Instagram with similar market penetration numbers. The are others showing relatively meagre figures, however as Facebook showed us all those years ago everything can change in the matter of weeks.
With a range of platforms all vying for second, there’s only one way to decipher who the real winner is – active daily users.
Facebook remains the leader in this regard again, with 72% of their userbase logging in on a daily basis. Interestingly, Instagram has the lowest market penetration of the four – at 23% – but their user-base is considerably more active than the 3 others, with 50% of their users logging in on a daily basis. The much documented fail in Twitter’s global following is a trend which has seen their remaining cohort in Ireland unite, there active daily numbers jumped by 4% – they come in just behind Facebook and Instagram with 39% of their overall userbase logging in on a daily basis.
You can see just how everyone stacks up on the infographic below.
Keelings customer Mathew Reilly became acquainted to Ralph the snail upon opening his Keelings fruit platter. Ralph, had a very different idea for the platter to Mathew & was using it his as his very own cross-country vehicle. The shocked, yet enamoured, customer turned to social media to notify Keelings of the whereabouts of their want-away pet snail Ralph.
Keelings were all too delighted to hear that Ralph was alive, well and in good company. So responded with thanks rather than with an apologetic tone.
This story pulled on the heart-strings of the nation & soon Ralph had his 15 mins in the limelight – as everyone from the Daily Edge to Joe.ie gave up some valuable column-inches to the story of Ralph and his epic journey the likes a snail has never seen.
#iseebeyond was an awareness campaign, spearheaded by the Bubble Digital team, which utilized social media to spread it’s message. The campaign’s aim to increase public awareness of hidden disabilities – such as epilepsy and fibromyalgia.
The campaign was launched by former Minister for Health Leo Varadkar, at a PR event. #iseebeyond began on February 3rd and continued throughout the month. During the month #iseebeyond reached a wide audience & generated a sizable buzz on the social media landscape. Not only did the campaign hit home with people who were directly affected by the issues raised by #iseebeyond, but the wider public also got on board; while there was also a number of notable celebrity endorsers, such as The Script.
#iseebeyond campaign in numbers:
The number speak for themselves, particularly on Twitter where 2.6 million users were reached throughout the campaign. 290 different users begun Twitter conversations & each mention helped spread the word throughout Ireland and the rest of the world.
While there were peaks and troughs throughout the campaign, #iseebeyond was a constant topic throughout the month. During these peaks it wasn’t uncommon to see #iseebeyond trending country-wide across Twitter.
Campaign reach on Facebook was just as impressive throughout the month. The #iseebeyond Facebook page managed to reach 609k users – through both organic (131k) & paid (478k) posts. Video posts ranked among the most popular for the campaign on Facebook; with one such video managing to generate 69,6k Facebook views, with an impressive 47% completion rate.
While the campaign has now come to completion, Bubble Digital are confident that we’ll see changes in people’s habits when faced with a person with a hidden disability. We’re proud of the work which was put into the #iseebeyond campaign and have every confidence that our clients at Headway are just as happy with the results as we are.
