Influencers are having a #HawaiinanSummer with Hawaiian Tropic

We all know that sun protection is of the utmost important for our skin, but it’s always good to be reminded – and what better way than via social media! The influencers who participated in legendary sunscreen brand Hawaiian Tropic’s campaign this summer certainly helped get the message across to their followers.

The sunscreen brand launched a campaign with influencers with the hashtag #HawaiianSummer to present their new products and their numerous benefits.

If we analyse the campaign hashtag, we can see more than 9,000 publications, but not all of them are from the official campaign. Since it’s not a necessarily unique hashtag, the influencers’ posts as well as the brand’s are mixed up with others that aren’t related to the brand or its campaign. This is something that happens quite regularly and should be analysed before launching a campaign to see whether or not the results will be positive.

What impact did the campaign have on Instagram?

Hawaiian Tropic selected several Spanish influencers to promote their products on Instagram. Some of them raffled off products from the brand’s new sun protection range on their profiles and others simply uploaded pictures to present the new products.

But all of them had one thing in common: a photo of a top summer location and a mention of in the copy, along with the campaign hashtag: #veranohawaiian.
