Geoffrey Blair’s Session(s):
1:00 pm–1:45 pm PDT — Thursday, June 11, 2020
How many people would you expect to watch a two-minute video about an academic medical center? UK HealthCare, the health system of the University of Kentucky, wanted its brand story to ignite its social media audience like never before. It needed influential people in the area and its own employees to amplify the power of the story and connect the brand to the audiences it serves. UK HealthCare’s Geoffrey Blair and Cornett’s Jason Falls will explain how harnessing micro-influencers and a hunch about the Facebook algorithm drove more than a million views from a community of about 300,000.
