A national authority in cancer awareness and research focused on education and fundraising wanted to understand what channels were best for educating and engaging target audiences. Specifically, the organization wanted to know how to help educate primary influencers and the best ways to get messages out about new, relevant information specific to cancer awareness and treatment. In addition, the organization wanted to understand how to increase the volume of affinity groups or people who would be interested in team development for sponsorship of charitable events.

Metric Centric developed an eListening analysis that evaluated a 12-month period across national and regional targets to review feedback on events from the past year. In parallel, the analyst team reviewed how people searched for information on specific types of cancer. This was significant because content preferences varied based on audience segment, e.g. patients, survivors, healthcare providers, caregivers.


By creating a detailed marketplace map of where people source information and who key influencers are the Metric Centric team identified a pattern in how people search and what information they are consuming. The form of cancer significantly impacted people’s behavior with those researching sensitive forms, e.g. testicular cancer, exhibiting completely different choices and channels than those with other types. These findings were then layered with the type, the timing and the location of information. This enabled the organization to create a practical content strategy for their targeted audiences. The strategy reflected the knowledge of what, when, and where specific content would be of most value to people.
