Take a look at what an innovative brand like Chipotle does for their big Facebook campaign for the month of July, 2015.

Below is the Subject Explorer for June. These are all the topics Chipotle posting on. You can see how the #chipotlecultivate campaign pops out, for both its volume and engagement level, per the legend on the upper right.

From there, we can see exactly what type of content is behind that keyword, the calendar they posted on, and so on. Below is the Subject Analyzer with those data views, and more. Note the Top Related Terms chart, which gives you a sense of what the overall campaign is about.

The fan-generated content down in the lower right of the chart below is nice, too. You can see they set up a booth at the event to enable consumer posts with the event and Chipotle brand.

And it looks like Chipotle put some budget behind this campaign, as identified by the difference between the 24-hour engagement rate, and the normal engagement rate (more about how we detect post promotion here).

The Cultivate event is actually a series of events, and I’m guessing that Chipotle used private posting to reach specific groups in the geographic areas where the events where, and used public posts to bring attention to the event overall.
