2020 Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award in Public Service/Advocacy
Trinity Health is a non-profit Catholic health system serving communities across the country. They asked us to support their goals of inspiring staff, community members, and grassroots managers to get involved in advocacy efforts. The campaign needed to have a strong impact.
In 2020 we helped Trinity Health launch Care for the Common Good (C4CG), their advocacy initiative to promote affordable, comprehensive health care for all. Voters needed information and a reason to act now, so timing was crucial. For peak awareness and advocate engagement, we launched the campaign eight weeks before the 2020 election.
The campaign’s efforts generated more than 9000 petition signatures. We used online, email, social, paid advertising, and gamification strategies to leverage increased public interest during the 2 months leading up to the 2020 election.
Our campaign was recognized with a Platinum Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award in the Public Service/Advocacy category.
Create a campaign that will engage and inspire their audience (internal and community members) to become advocates for promoting awareness of the value of affordable, comprehensive health care for all.
The C4CG initiative featured 4 core themes of public health-related data, which we imagined as a deck of cards with each suit representing:
1. Access to Coverage
2. Public Health
3. Community Health
4. Affordable Health Care
We decided on a coordinated, multi-channel approach, including gamification components.
Our strategies had to be:
3. Lessen the taboo of talking politics
4. Serious, but with a positive spin
5. Easy to share
6. Buildable; one step at a time to advocacy
