Social Media Landing Page
Cigna has several pages for their different divisions that service customers and other stakeholder interests. Cigna has developed a central page as a “landing page” for all of these different sites and pages. According to Sarah Lindsay with Cigna,
“Cigna wants to be where our customers are. As part of our coordinated social media strategy, we recognized a communications need from our customers, media, and employees for a centralized place to find everything. The social media landing page, launched in January 2011, essentially created a directory of our social media channels to help people quickly locate, track, and engage in our latest announcements, campaigns, and events. In creating a “living” page, we also had the capability to provide a snapshot of what’s happening in that moment in Cigna’s social media community.”
By utilizing the landing page or online newsroom format, Cigna is able to maintain a centralized communication center for their customers. Read the full article at Socialmediatoday.com.
