Indiana Youth Services Association wanted to bring awareness to the Indiana Lifeline Law and empower young people to call or text 911 in an emergency and to know the signs of alcohol poisoning.



After assessing the client’s goals of the campaign, the Emmis Marketing strategy team created a flighted annual social media campaign to help drive awareness to the dangers of alcohol poisoning and the Indiana Lifeline Law.

The Emmis Marketing team targeted the campaign to college and high school aged persons and their parents across Indiana, paying close attention to areas known for under-age or a very active drinking culture. Emmis Marketing created a call to action hashtag around which the campaign centered and used a variety of platforms including Snapchat, Facebook & Instagram. These platforms were used in tandem with creative that was consistently fresh and customized for demographics and platform delivery to better reach and engage the target audiences. Emmis Marketing also employed a Connected TV strategy in which an emotional testimonial video was given to drive home the seriousness of the issue and was relevant and relatable to a larger audience.
