The award-winning programs were as follows:
XOMAD thanks Ad Age, Modern Healthcare, and the selection committee for not only recognizing the quality and impact of these campaigns, but also for so definitively demonstrating the path to unlocking the potential of social media marketing: through the mass activation of armies of local, trusted, and highly vetted nano- and micro-influencers.

Quotes from notable industry leaders and experts:
Aaron Reitkopf, Senior Advisor to Interpublic Group:
“XOMAD’s clean sweep of all the available top Ad Age social awards is proof that reaching highly targeted audiences at scale on social media has finally changed. Simply put, this is powerful third-party validation of the power and efficacy of using armies of micro- and nano-influencers to reach highly specific targets at scale, create real behavioral change, and drive sales.”
Lord Matt Scheckner, Chairman of Advertising Week:
“XOMAD is the real deal. It’s hard to win one Social Media Campaign of the Year award from Ad Age, let alone clean sweep all three. What XOMAD is doing sits at the nexus of what everyone wants to talk about: using emerging technologies, like AI and social media, to build deep relationships with consumers, through powerful storytelling and creativity. Using nano- and micro-influencers is not the future for advertisers, it’s today.”
Mary Bono, former United States Congresswoman and CEO & Chair of the Board of Directors of MAPDA:
“We know that social media must be part of the solution to foster conversations about drug abuse. Leveraging the voices and platforms of social media influencers that can speak authentically about tough issues creates the kind of open, honest, and direct conversation that can lead to real behavior change in ways that billboards never can.”
Cameron Trimble, former Director of Digital Engagement in the White House:
“Social media is how we all get our news and information. Social media is long past being a fad or just a place for young people. XOMAD offers a breakthrough technology: a way to identify and deploy huge communities of trusted people on social media to convey a message. This is the new way to reach hard-to-reach communities at scale and create lasting behavior change.”
