Perrier: Make Dry Fly
Perrier knows Dry January, a month long alcohol-free challenge, is tough. We saw an opportunity to own the challenge, which few brands in the U.S. were doing. So during Dry Jan, we'll be all over Twitter giving you some serious motivation to keep on keeping on, all month long.

The Hashtag & Promoted Trend
We created the hashtag #MakeDryFly as a way to convey that Dry January isn’t only easy with Perrier, it can be fun as well. We started the month with a promoted trend, and I wrote a copy bank of over 40 tweets. Despite some people thinking the trend was about fly fishing (who knew?) we still had positive interactions with fans.
In addition to our paid media, we also had ongoing organic content during the month. We took popular meme & tweet formats and Perrier-fied them. Organic tweets during January improved engagement by up to 200% Here’s some of my favorites:
Heart to Remind
We also had a Heart to Remind Tweet Series, where users who liked our tweet would receive a surprise motivational message sometime later in the month. Unbeknownst to them, that tweet would happen on January 17th, the day when people are most likely to stop Dry January. For these videos, I pitched concepts for six 6-second videos, helped direct the talent on set and worked with the green screen editor to help create the world.
These are the three Tweets making up the Heart to Remind series. After liking the first, they'll immediately be served the second, and be served the third on the 17th of January.
