Cisco, a Fortune 100 company and a leader in the global technology industry, wanted to increase thought leadership, raise executive visibility, and support the brand’s key messages, by supporting the social media content of a SVP of enterprise networking.
Through Social Factor’s Digital Audit + Strategy, a unique digital strategy was built on the executive's goals, target audiences, key messages, and tone of voice.

COBLATION◊ plasma technology from Smith+Nephew has enabled over 10 million ENT procedures since 1998. The Social Factor team was tasked to not only identify patients that may have an upcoming need for an ENT procedure, but also identify parents of potential young patients. Social Factor created and deployed a complete digital experience that described the impact a COBLATION◊ wand can have on procedures, giving patients a faster recovery time with reduced chance of post-surgery negative effects.
After a complete strategic audit and development process, the Social Factor team worked with Smith+Nephew to launch MyTonsils - a digital platform including website, blog, social channels, and paid media. This platform targeted potential Patients through Organic/Paid search and social media to educate patients and point them toward an ENT surgeon in their area that uses COBLATION◊ technology. For the Sales Team, Social Factor created an eBook for each Sales Representative with trackable links to measure each surgeon lead.
In our first program year, over 5,000 patients were driven to sites of ENT surgeons using COBLATION◊ to schedule a consultation for their surgery need, with tracking to each individual practice so the Sales Team could promote this to their surgeons.
