The StoryStudio team really digs in to understand the brand, the mission, and the overall needs of the campaign. It isn’t a cookie-cutter solution; it’s custom content that delivers on the objective of the current campaign.”

"Each story has a different audience or a different goal, and yet, the StoryStudio team always reaches the right target audience and over-delivers on campaign results."

We explored topics such as stress management, preventative medicine, and aging in depth throughout the campaign. We wanted to make sure to connect the dots for the audience to not only educate readers about overall health, but to inspire them to take action.

Providence St. Joseph Health is proud to take a stand for issues they believe in and their strong values are something we wanted to make sure were emphasized.

We focused targeting for the campaigns to their primary marketings: the San Francisco Bay Area and the Seattle Metro area, with secondary targeting throughout the United States. We are continuing to expand targeting to new regional markets as Providence St. Joseph Health’s organization grows. Each story in the campaign had a custom distribution strategy using a combination of tactics, including geographic, contextual, and demographic targeting.
