XOMAD vetted and engaged 113 Louisianans with prominent social media followings to share personal stories about why they were vaccinated.
The campaign, launched in January 2022, captured the bronze award in the advocacy category for Social Media Campaign of the Year.
The health department and XOMAD used the latter’s client and creator platform to engage influencers and gauge audience sentiment so the campaign could grow and evolve. Additionally, the health department was able to prepare messaging for influencers to share on platforms such as TikTok during real-time events, including a hurricane.
The five-phase campaign garnered 16.4 million impressions and reached nearly 5 million users, according to XOMAD. Despite the polarization associated with the vaccines, overall sentiment was overwhelmingly positive, the agency said. Less than 1% of the reported 91,000 engagements reflected a negative interaction.
