There are more then seven million people in the US and Canada who are recovering from stroke. They constitute a large online community of information seekers that includes physicians, therapists, resellers, distributors and people recovering from the disease. This case study will present how a small medical device firm integrated Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn, Google AdWords, snail mail, email and print in an effort to reach the diverse communities and still maintain their FDA certified status. The discussion will include what worked and other lessons learned by a startup in a big market.
Social networking and community based websites are a hot topic again. It seems every site now wants you to join and be a part of that community. The question is, if you offer the tools to build a community on your site, will they come? Using Analytic Design Group’s recent work on the CIRS (Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability) website as a case study, Karyn will explore various strategies for building community on a website. She will look at the the drivers for the strategic decisions we made, the context of the CIRS site, and explore how that might work in other contexts.
