@Humana and the Micro Influencer Employee

Jason W. Spencer is wearing an outdated Fitbit and my brain can’t handle it.

Once I was able to move past that old flex he said some great things to say.  From talking about building and managing a couple thousand micro influencers to failing fast so you can learn, he inspired a few of my new favorite story notes.

Humana saw that their employees were already talkingIMG_20170403_100804_280 about the company and decided to give them quality content to share.  Not every post is branded as from Humana, in fact most posts are about getting healthy and making choices that will improve quality of life. Quality, not fake news, information allows Humana to reach out with information and also create a great relationship with not only their employees but with potential consumers.
