Little Steps, Big Impact

In both 2013 and 2014, Lovgren Marketing Group worked with the Metro Area Planning Agency (MAPA) to develop an integrated marketing campaign addressing elevated ground-level ozone in the metro with the goal of encouraging metro residents to ride the bus during the summer on days designated as “Ozone Awareness” days. The marketing campaign included TV and radio commercials, social media, outdoor advertisements, earned media and more.
