The presence o the Above the Infuence brandwithin Facebook began as a an-created communitythat ocially launched as a Page in June 2010.Media support ollowed in November and eaturedFacebook Ads encouraging teens to visit the Abovethe Infuence Facebook Page (www.acebook.com/AbovetheInfuence) in addition to the Above theInfuence website (www.abovetheinfuence.com).The goal o the Facebook Ads campaign wasto continue to raise awareness or the brand’sphilosophy and its available resources, and to drivequality an growth or the Above the InfuenceFacebook Page.To achieve these goals, Above the Infuenceapproached U.S. teens 13- to 17-years-old onFacebook with a two-pronged strategy. First, itreached out to general market teens and directedthem to the Above the Infuence website, whereteens could learn more about Above the Infuenceand increase their knowledge regarding substanceuse and negative infuences. Secondarily, Above theInfuence targeted teens who shared the brand’ssentiments and encouraged them to join the Abovethe Infuence Facebook community.Ads targeted to the latter group o teens wereidentied as having a potential anity or Abovethe Infuence based on what the teens sharedin their public proles. This could include statedinvolvement in community coalitions (e.g., YMCA,Jewish Community Center, etc.), and/or statementsagainst substance abuse (e.g., “I don’t drink orsmoke”). The ads used provocative messages suchas “Live Above and Inspire,” encouraging users tojoin the conversation and make their voices heardon the Above the Infuence Facebook Page.To encourage engagement with Above the Infuence,teens that showed anity or the brand were alsoserved Premium Video Ads eaturing Above theInfuence television commercials. One Video Adasks, “What keeps these teens Above the Infuence?Watch this commercial and let us know. Like ourPage or more discussions.”With the understanding that teens across thecountry have embraced Above the Infuence as theirvoice in resisting negative infuences—particularlydrugs and alcohol—it was important to build astrong community where teens elt empoweredto be themselves and share their experienceswith peers. “The Above the Infuence Facebookcommunity supports the mission and ghts or theideals that we are talking about,” says Dana Fiore,Account Executive at Dratcb. “The ans know it’sa sae place or them to have honest discussions.”The campaign’s success has come rom establishinga cohesive online community through targetedadvertising eorts, careul moderation and requentbrand postings helping to guide and encourageongoing conversation.
