Valley Water is responsible, in part, for securing, managing and delivering safe and reliable water supply to the region. The potential of advanced purified water as a new, reliable, locally-controlled water source that can augment drinking water supplies is exciting for a region that suffers frequent drought.
Past public opinion surveys conducted by Valley Water revealed overall support for potable reuse using purified water; however, certain groups such as people of color and women with children are less accepting of the concept.
PRxDigital, working in conjunction with Valley Water, developed an digital and social media marketing campaign that effectively positioned the campaign messages with impactful creative and a consistent look and feel.
PRxDigital invited community leaders, a key component of the campaign, to learn about and sample advanced purified water and video-recorded their testimonials attesting to the water’s taste as well as its benefits. PRxDigital arranged interviews with 15 community leaders, recorded the sessions, and produced seven videos, four in English and one in each of the following languages: Chinese, Spanish, and Vietnamese. The videos were used as pre-roll ads (a video advertisement that automatically plays directly before a featured video) on YouTube and Facebook/Instagram.
The online display ads developed by PRxDigital for the campaign were actually videos that showed alternating images of community leaders who had provided testimonials. These innovative and eye-catching ads encouraged the audience to click on the ads.
In addition, images of the community leaders were created for a series of posts that were shared on Valley Water's social media accounts and by the community leaders themselves.
Next, in order to engage the public on this matter, PRxDigital developed a comprehensive digital and social media marketing strategy that showcased the videos and other creative to effectively reached the target audiences.20
