Bolthouse Farms Introduces Innovative New Social Engagement Program Beta Testing On The Instagram Platform
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bolthouse Farms today announced the launch of a groundbreaking new social media engagement program across the Instagram platform – the Juice Recognition campaign is an innovative new program that scans photos and visuals from public Instagrammer posts and verifies imagery of branded content, recognizing not only keyword and hashtag use but also photo use. To develop the program, Bolthouse Farms partnered with industry-leading partners, including positive change advertising agency Tiny Rebellion, digital technology agency Wildlife, and RevTrax, a marketing technology company that drives in-store sales through digital coupons. This is one of the first brand promotions of its kind on the Instagram platform.
The program seamlessly folds into natural behavior on social media channels. For the program beta test on Instagram, community members are encouraged to "Snap it, Tag It and Get It" in order to participate in the campaign, posting imagery of Bolthouse Farms® product, advertisements, website visuals, logos, etc., plus the hashtags #carrotfarmers and #gotcoupon. Once the program verifies the visuals, the Instagrammer is automatically sent a link to download a coupon, which can then be redeemed in-store at participating retail locations.
"Bolthouse Farms strives to make the healthy choice the easy choice and this exciting new program raises the bar, allowing us to spread this message by engaging with fans instantaneously through their natural social behaviors," said Suzanne Ginestro, Vice President of Marketing for Bolthouse Farms. "Social media is an incredible force and we are excited to see the opportunities that build from this innovative new program."
Added Jonathan Treiber, CEO & co-founder of RevTrax: “At RevTrax, we see the value of secure, personalized engagement across multiple channels and devices, and are thrilled to partner with Bolthouse Farms on this Instagram visual recognition program. Our online-to-offline marketing technology is the perfect tool to drive fans to try Bolthouse Farms products.”
This innovative new program is a key element to Bolthouse Farms' current marketing initiative, which takes a non-traditional approach to marketing by driving the brand's farm fresh message of 'making the healthy choice the easy choice.'
