A Case Study: Johnson & Johnson Health Channel

The creation of the Johnson & Johnson health channel on YouTube is a non-branded site with the goal of presenting a better understanding of health and health care issues. Roxanne will interview Rob about the creation of J&J's program, from logistics of putting the channel together and populating it with content, to legal and corporate considerations, obstacles and opportunities, and internal resources and budgeting. In this session, they will talk about:

  • when and how J&J decided to build a YouTube channel
  • what were some of the considerations/obstacles/opportunities you encountered?
  • how many people work on this project? What portion if any is outsourced?
  • has it met J&J's expectations? Any surprises?
  • did you encounter internal resistance?
  • any rough numbers on budget that you can share?
  • is your video re-purposed from other uses or are these created specifically for the YouTube channel?

Rob's presentation is available!
