Throughout the year, there are countless health observances that raise awareness for a variety of conditions (both big and small) and also remind consumers to be proactive and stay on top of their health. These days or months are often celebrated by hospitals, healthcare nonprofits, patients, media, and social influencers.
As March 15-21 is declared Brain Awareness Week, a global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science, we recommend healthcare marketers put together a promotional campaign for this in order to stay timely and engaged with current and prospective patients.
How to do that? We have a few ideas:
- Content Marketing – whether it be a blog post, infographic, webinar or eBook, utilizing content marketing will help to showcase your expertise.
- Social Media – social is obviously a great way to stay in touch with your audience, and as paid social allows for targeting options, you can tailor your message accordingly.
- Email – one of the most direct forms of marketing, you can personalize email messages to let your audience know you are speaking directly to them.
Of course you can combine these tactics and use them as you see fit. The most important thing is to consider how your audience consumes content, and when they consume it so you can be in the right time and place for optimal connection.
