Brand awareness, patient loyalty and patient engagement are the top goals healthcare marketers are working achieve with their content, along with addressing the need to optimize content for search.
With responses from professionals involved in marketing more than 650 hospitals and other healthcare facilities nationwide, True North Custom’s 2018 State of Healthcare Content Marketing Report outlines the challenges to achieving those goals.
Chief among them is measuring content effectiveness, with 87 percent of respondents finding it either moderately or very challenging. Lack of budget and lack of integration also earned responses from more than 7 in 10 marketers.
But when only the “very challenged” responses were tallied, the challenges that rose to the top included these:
Producing content consistently.
Producing a variety of content.
