Announcing Hashtag Tracking Campaigns!

Alan VanToai

September 27, 2017

Today, we’re excited to announce the release of CrewFire’s biggest feature update since launching the CrewFire 2.0 redesign earlier this year – an entirely new campaign type we’re calling **Hashtag Tracking Campaigns**.




With the new **Hashtag Tracking Campaigns**, your Ambassadors can now:

- Post multiple times per campaign (no longer limited to one post per campaign)
- Post across all social networks (no longer limited to a single network per campaign)
- Post their own content, GIFs, video, etc. (no longer limited to your suggested content)
- Get organic-level reach, because every post is made natively in each network!

Previously, CrewFire had just one campaign type – Post Suggestion Campaigns – with which Brands can suggest single Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram posts to their Ambassadors.

While Post Suggestion Campaigns remain a powerful tool for getting hundreds or thousands of your Ambassadors to share your suggested content with you on social media, they are limited in a few ways:

- Post Suggestion Campaigns are limited to one post per campaign
- Post Suggestion Campaigns are limited to one social network per campaign
- Ambassadors can’t post their own images
- No video or GIF support
- Posts made via third-party apps are often penalized with diminished reach in each network’s News Feed algorithms

- Today with Hashtag Tracking Campaigns, Managers give the Ambassadors broad instructions on what to post, and assign a designated hashtag to the campaign.

The Ambassadors receive the campaign instructions via SMS and email.

Ambassadors can then make their posts natively on each social network, using the designated hashtag.

CrewFire will listen for posts made with the designated hashtag, and pull them into the campaign (giving the Ambassador points for each post).

Managers can review a Feed showing all the posts their Ambassadors made using the designated Hashtag, and delete any that aren’t suitable for the campaign.

With the new Hashtag Tracking campaign, your Ambassadors can now:

- Post multiple times per campaign (no longer limited to one post per campaign)
- Post across all social networks (no longer limited to a single network per campaign)
- Post their own content, GIFs, video, etc. (no longer limited to your suggested content)
- Get organic-level reach, because every post is made natively in each network!

The new
is an incredibly powerful new tool that will help your business drive more sales, shares, and engagement from social media than ever before.
