Niagara County Picks Purplegator for Workforce Development Job
Digital Agency Purplegator Wins Award to Support Niagara County Workforce Development Board to Raise Awareness About Opportunities for Local Youth
Niagara Falls, NY: Niagara County Workforce Development Board (NCWDB) has awarded Purplegator, a digital marketing agency that lifts clients’ campaigns through targeted promotional strategies, to promote the NCWDB’s programs aiding disadvantaged youth for the second year in a row. Firstly, Purplegator will help Niagara County youth (ages 16-24 who aren’t working or in school) by making them aware of opportunities available to them through NCWDB (funded by a WIOA grant). Most importantly, it will also inspire youth to think about their future, with aspirational imagery and positive messaging. The campaigns will encourage and motivate the maximum intended audience to see what program opportunities are available to them, with the ultimate goal of maximizing the number of WIOA youth applicants for the three Niagara County WIOA youth programs.
Therefore, Purplegator’s campaigns will promote the programs primarily through social media. Specifically Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and gaming platforms. So, over four months, each of ten unique campaigns will have a specific theme. Themes include vocational exploration, career counseling, paid work experience, and more. Certainly, there are many moving parts with a program of this breadth and scope.
