Start by following iDrive on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Like and comment to show support for iDrive campaigns. Help make the movement to go viral.

iDrive Agent Tips: Creating Social Media Campaigns
Hey, social media champion! Want some inside tips on creating viral content?
- Attention-grabbing graphics. Not many people want to read a block of text or pay attention to a short text tweet. Create a graphic with a campaign slogan and design theme.
- Emotional appeal. People are interested in things that make them feel something. Include an images and “word pictures” that evoke surprise, empathy, sense of solidarity–something that triggers a sense of shared identity.
- Statistics. Consider beginning your post with statistics that captures the attention of your audience and raises concerned about your issue.
- Hashtags. Hashtags are your friend! Check which ones are trending and choose ones that are relevant to your topic and incorporate them into your post. Hashtags increase the chances that people — especially those with lots of followers — who don’t yet follow your social media campaign will see and share your posts.
- Call to action. Now that someone has read your post, what can they do to help further your cause? Perhaps it is making their own post, sharing your post, or simply following iDrive on social media to stay informed of current events and initiatives that matter to us as teens living in a technology-based society.
