In this episode of AMP Up Your Digital Marketing, you’ll learn from Michael:

  • Don’t be afraid of new ideas. Figure out what works and what doesn’t. Try something new and see where it goes. Your audience doesn’t need perfection. They need content that engages them, makes them laugh or inspires them.
  • Commit to actively managing your social channels. Give your team members clear brands to support and the autonomy to make social work for them.
  • Video isn’t the future; it’s now! YouTube recently announced that its users upload more than 500 hours of new videos every minute. That 30,000 hours of new content per hour, and 720,000 hours of new content per day. It’s a powerful way to share stories and highlight the best parts of your business. And it doesn’t have to be perfect.

With this insight, you’ll learn how they empower field teams to capture and contribute content to their company through employee advocacy. By leveraging different social media channels, CHG Healthcare has segmented their content for different audiences and use cases: Twitter for job postings, LinkedIn for career and culture tips, and Facebook and Instagram for culture, stories, and videos. At CHG Healthcare, when you can see the impact of your job, and your job is more than just a job, it's so much more meaningful.
