Tomorrow morning, the world will be different: Over 10,000 Baby Boomers (those born between 1945 and 1965) will turn 65, officially becoming, by most definitions, "seniors." Though just 13 percent of the total population, these seniors represent nearly one third of all health care expenditures in America, according to the National Center for Policy Analysis. And that spending percentage is expected to rise substantially in the coming years.

A New Focus on Reaching Older Consumers

Undoubtedly, those reaching their golden years present a golden opportunity for health care marketers. That's why, today, savvy marketing pros are embracing this growing market of heavy consumers of health products and services with messaging that combines information, education and persuasive offers. More and more, they're imparting those marketing appeals through video.

Seniors Seek Online Video for Health Care Answers

A recent Google study revealed that nearly 60 percent of aging Boomers searched online for health information. Meanwhile, a National Research Corporation survey showed 20 percent of them look to social media for health information, with Facebook far and away their primary platform.

Riding the Crest of This Wave

That's one very good reason to enhance a health care company's online video presence. A second reason: video content helps rank a Website higher in searches (the website is 50 times more likely to appear on Google's first page if the site features video) while increasing time-on-site. And that gives the company plenty of good reasons to explore new uses of video.
