In 2015, we are predicting organizations focusing on quality content over quantity, a bigger emphasis on creativity and a social distribution strategy to reach the largest possible audience.
Troy, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2015
Healthcare marketing agency Smith & Jones published a new white paper today titled, “2015 Healthcare Marketing Trends.” Available for download on the agency’s website, this white paper discusses 12 marketing trends hospitals will face in the coming year.
Last year, Smith & Jones’ trends for 2014 included content marketing, responsive web design and the use of video. This year, the healthcare marketing specialists are seeing these trends continue to evolve. They are also predicting some new trends, such as the value of long term relationships over social impressions and likes, a brand new fusion of two types of content and the importance of transparency to the new, high-deductible-insurance-plan-buying e-patient.
“Last year, the big buzz word was content,” said Mark Shipley, Co-founder and Strategy Director of Smith & Jones. “However, what most organizations found is that without a distribution strategy, content falls flat. In 2015, we are predicting organizations focusing on quality content over quantity, a bigger emphasis on creativity and a social distribution strategy to reach the largest possible audience.”
In addition to the evolution of content marketing in 2015, other marketing trends discussed in the white paper include:
–Shorter content for higher patient engagement
–Relevance is the new authenticity
–Mobile is #1
–The future of retargeting: pre-targeting
