In this era of Content Marketing, many brands struggle because they just don't have their own content. Thus, they focus on curating content produced by others. Cleveland Clinic, one of the largest academic medical centers in the world, takes a different approach: they create, rather than curate. In 2012, Cleveland Clinic launched a robust new health, wellness and medical blog for healthcare consumers, called Health Hub from Cleveland Clinic, which features content written or approved by its doctors and other experts. In this session, Scott Linabarger, Director, Digital Marketing - Cleveland Clinic, will discuss how Cleveland Clinic launched the blog and is comprehensively leveraging its content throughout its various digital channels, including advertising, social media, mobile and email, to grow brand awareness and engagement.
