How Open Conversation Between Moms, Marketers Earns Influence
Sargento recently ran a program where 150 bloggers were invited to educate their communities around natural cheese versus processed cheese. Each blogger received a testing kit and were asked to taste, smell and write about their experience. Minute Clinic with 600 clinics across 25 states debuted in social media at the 2011 BlogHer conference and was overwhelmed with the positive response from bloggers. Director of Marketing Kristine McGee says Minute Clinic is focused on nurturing relationships with a quality base of mom bloggers. "If there is a virus outbreak we can spread important information through our base of bloggers and their readers can seek immediate health care through their nearest Minute Clinic".
Like any powerful movement, Mom 2.0 inspired Doug French and John Pacini to catalyze Dad 2.0 where marketers, social media leaders, and blogging parents connect to discuss the changing voice and perception of modern fatherhood.
Doug felt there was a need to represent the dads who are proud to take on the parenting role and share their experiences. And brands are reaching out to influential dads who blog too. Recently, Kimberly-Clark's Huggies brand was accused of portraying dad as too dumb to change diapers, and as a result, Huggies reached out to a group of dad bloggers and listened to their feedback.Editor's note: Got a question for our guest blogger?
