Butterfly iQ+ Product Launch

https://youtu.be/ytuASCxjC_k?si=m3kbZISA9qdBM1aN

Led the launch of Butterfly's second-generation ultrasound probe on social media, driving over 30,000 unique video views and a 300% increase in engagement rate, surpassing all competitors in the share of voice (SOV).

Butterfly iQ+ is the second-generation ultrasound probe created by Butterfly Network. The device and software contained many enhancements to the original offering in response to feedback and the needs of medical professionals. For the iQ+ launch campaign, I identified 15+ reputable and influential healthcare professionals active on social media who were offered early access to the device. After its launch, many of these individuals produced a flurry of unboxing videos, reviews, and educational clips with the iQ+. The authentic style and genuine enthusiasm spurred increased awareness, social engagement, new followers, and business results.

Musicologist Monday at Pandora

https://youtu.be/Zp6nrf7Z6p0

Launched Pandora's musicologist video campaign, driving over eight million views across platforms through paid and organic social posts for three months.

This project involved 19 videos featuring seven curation team members showcasing unique styles and approaches to song selection by music genre. The videos aimed to showcase Pandora's uniquely human connection to music, dispelling myths that online radio is nothing but a cold algorithm. The video series pulled back the curtain on the individuals handling music selections for popular genres, including hip-hop, rock, pop, and Latin. This campaign supported a larger brand effort to bring Pandora front and center for a more thoughtful approach to music, thoughtfully connecting listeners to the music they love.

Forge Health offers mental health care at over 15 brick-and-mortar locations and regional telehealth clinics. I established a framework for existing facilities support and ongoing service expansion, establishing a complete and accurate presence on all effective offsite SEO channels. The focus was on Google Business Pages, Psychology Today, Yelp, Google Locations, and WebMD, including a partnership with BrightLocal that led to cost savings and efficiencies in awareness, site traffic, and treatment opportunities without reliance on paid media.
