Company: life'sDHA™ & National Center for Creative Aging
Campaign: Beautiful Minds
PR agency: Carmichael Lynch Spong
In 2009, the organic DHA supplement company life'sDHA released its National Index of Brain Health. It is now looking to launch a similar index in 2011 to further raise awareness about brain health in the US.
“Beautiful Minds: Finding Your Lifelong Potential” is a Web campaign that solicits citizens 55 and older (or those who love them) to submit essays or videos highlighting the extraordinary things they're doing with their minds and bodies. In partnership with the National Center for Creative Aging, the website beautiful-minds.com will accept submissions until May 13. From there, 20 semi-finalists will be chosen.
AOR Carmichael Lynch Spong will manage the website and leverage a proactive outreach to traditional, online, and broadcast media outlets, including Examiner.com, AARP, and Boomer health magazines. The campaign will also engage social media platforms with a Facebook page, Twitter account, and its own YouTube channel.
“We can target traditional media,” notes Martin, “but Boomers are also online, as are their daughters and sons, and granddaughters and grandsons, so nominations can be made by someone other than Boomers themselves.”
Success will be measured by how many entries are received, media placements and impressions, and traffic to the company's website.
