1.Meet the new consumer
The migration to mobile and social media will challenge — and change — everything we know about consumer marketing.

1. Meet the new healthcare consumer
The consumerization of healthcare, major demographic shifts, and the migration
to mobile and social media are tilting the balance of power away from traditional
healthcare marketers and into the hands of potential patients.
2. Online reputation is the new competitive frontier for marketers
Healthcare brands are no longer controlled by marketers. Patient feedback about
doctors and facilities online is leading to total market transparency for healthcare
consumers. CG-CAHPS surveys only go so far in providing social proof.
3. Healthcare branding is becoming hyper-local
In the search for providers, all branding is local – at the level of individual

75% of brands now pay to promote their Facebook posts,1 and
that number will only continue to rise over the next few years.
Why pay for ads when Facebook is technically a “free” social
network? Well, you may have noticed that your organic posts
on Facebook are reaching fewer and fewer people every
day (and probably not getting the engagement they deserve,
either). That’s because organic reach for brand pages has hit an
all time low at around 2%, and organic reach per post continues
to decline rapidly every single day.1 Last year, SocialFlow saw a
42% drop in organic reach per post in just five months.

Marketers approaching social media with a direct marketing mindset and organizing their programs with the right methodology can clearly determine its impact on sales and ROI.

or other provider is one of the most powerful registration tools to emerge in the last

streamlines the registration process but also gives your business a head start on
building deeper relationships with them.
