The Impact

We brought focus to Alcon’s hero products through stories, galleries and Instagram posts readers lingered on. Our Instagram posts, which included a “shelfie” product arrangement popular with Cosmo readers, drew scores of positive comments, including this one: “Best contact solution!” The program’s content connected with our audience—three of the stories ranked in the top 10 for branded content for their sites in 2017. And “5 Essential Grooming Steps You’re Definitely Overlooking” was the most popular piece of branded content on Esquire.com in terms of reach for the year.
