Using the Power of Video to Create a Movement (Ep. 157)
by TODD HARTLEY, on Jun 13, 2018 8:27:00 AM
If you've been a frequent listener of the podcast then you know that my stepmom and wife have both battled through breast cancer.
That's why I'm extremely passionate about educating people on the disease.
After my stepmom was diagnosed, I teamed up with international breast cancer expert, Dr. Jay K. Harness.
Together, we created Breast Cancer Answers and produced over 2,000 videos that answered questions from breast cancer patients.
These videos generated over 1.1 million followers, 13 million views, and became the largest library of expert-to-patient breast cancer videos.
In short, we created a movement of physician vetted information that helped patients and families better understand the disease.
But we're not the only ones doing this.
Dr. John Williams, breast cancer surgeon in Northern Virginia and long-time friend of mine, has created Breast Cancer School for Patients — a video-based online school that teaches patients how to be an "expert" in their own breast cancer care.
And it's my honor to have both guests on today's episode.
So if you want to learn how to start a movement in your industry, and what it takes to create your own video setup, then tune into this episode of Video Marketing Mastery.
