RENO, Nev. (June 12, 2023) — The Abbi Agency, an integrated marketing communications agency specializing in creative, digital and public relations services, received an Award of Excellence at the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Silver Anvil Awards for its work on the 2023 Open Enrollment Campaign for Nevada Health Link. PRSA considers the Anvil Awards to be the benchmark of high performance in public relations, with Silver Anvil Awards signifying the best strategic public relations campaigns of the year. 

For the second year in a row, The Abbi Agency curated and launched an integrated marketing campaign for Nevada Health Link, the state-based marketplace for affordable and quality health insurance in Nevada. With the overall goal to get more Nevadans enrolled in health insurance, the integrated campaign combined strategies across all of The Abbi Agency’s departments and service lines including public relations, paid media, social media, blogs, newsletter, website, creative and community relations. The campaign was guided by extensive research-based strategies through the work of renowned research partner, Marketing 4 Change, and emphasized a strong focus on equity and diversity through the support of Ericka Aviles Consulting, a multicultural PR and marketing agency based in Nevada. 

As a result of the campaign, Nevada Health Link experienced its second-highest enrollment to date, enrolling over 96,000 Nevadans in health insurance.

“We are honored to be the only Nevada-based agency recognized this year at PRSA’s Anvil Awards,” said Connie Anderson, chief strategy officer at The Abbi Agency. “As a full-service marketing agency that aims to ensure that our work is intentional, impactful and long lasting to the communities we work in, the Nevada Health Link 2023 Open Enrollment campaign was a testament to that, and we are proud to share the results of the campaign have led more Nevadans becoming insured.”
