What makes marketing in the health IT space unique? Who are the movers and shakers? What’s working, what’s trending? Where can you learn more? This monthly roundup post will focus in on all things health IT when it comes to marketing.
Tune in to What’s My Tagline? where we put the microphone in front of the healthcare marketing, sales, social media, and PR community. On the show, host Carol Flagg (@carolflagg) questions industry experts relative to their occupations on the impact of social media, the evolving role of content marketing, the critical factor of engagement to build brand loyalty, and more. On this episode, Carol talks with Linda MacCracken, senior principal at Accenture and Adjunct Professor at Harvard, discussing marketing segmentation in healthcare and what marketers are getting wrong about generational groups.
Marketing at Scale is the Wrong Focus for B2B Healthcare Startups – By Colin Hung (@Colin_Hung) – Building campaigns and programs to “market at scale” is a laudable goal – but a completely wrong one for healthcare startups that sell to hospitals, physician practices or payers. Instead, they would be much better served by focusing their marketing efforts on revenue-generating activities rather than clicks.

5 Organic, Free Methods to Grow your Health IT Instagram – Beth Cooper, Marketing & Social Media Director at KNB Communications (@KNBComm) writes, Instagram is often overlooked in the B2B healthcare marketing space as being too frivolous. However, it is a platform with over a billion monthly active users. While Brandwatch reports that 90% of Instagram users are under 35 years old, and millennials climb into more and more leadership positions, businesses who have a presence on Instagram will be the best positioned to reach and impress them. Still, healthcare marketers may currently receive some pushback if they try to invest many resources into the platform. Here are 5 free, organic methods of growing a health IT Instagram account.
Social Media Management Tool Comparison – Brian Shilling, Digital Marketing Director at ClarityQuest (@CQmarketing) says, The key to a thriving social media presence is strategy. Yes, your social media needs a strategy. Part of that strategy is consistency. Posting consistently is expected these days. Understandably, you’re busy and social media might not be a top priority. Who has time to post multiple times a week on different platforms? What about looking at analytics and social listening, and finding more revenue opportunities?
It’s Not Your Dad’s PR World Anymore – Michelle Noteboom from Amendola Communications (@AmendolaComm) says, In the old days, before Twitter, company websites and the World Wide Web, a PR specialist would spend most of his or her days crafting press releases, calling journalists on the phone (the land line kind, of course) to pitch story ideas, and perhaps writing the occasional article or speech on behalf of a customer’s CEO. In today’s digital world, successful PR pros must be proficient in multiple additional areas, including social media and digital marketing.
Measuring and Maximizing Social Media ROI – Jess Clifton, from Agency Ten22 (@AgencyTen22) writes, In modern business, social media marketing is ubiquitous. An active presence on social media enhances brand visibility, promotes real-time engagement and demonstrates professional legitimacy.
