Tue, 27 Sep 2016 19:07:00 GMT2016-09-27T15:07:00Z

Content Marketing For Specific Industries: Medical

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 17:38:00 GMT2016-09-27T13:38:00Z

In my last article we explored how to effectively use content marketing for the SaaS industry. Today, I want to talk about another industry that I'm questioned about all the time: the medical industry. Medical content marketing can be intimidating for those in the know. They realize that there are regulations and compliance that they have to adhere to, or they risk getting into trouble with government agencies that regulate the industry heavily. Thus, most just ignore content marketing all-together. Which is a shame, because if you were to look at industries that are tailor-suited to content marketing, the medical field would be at the top of the list. It's an industry where the customers (patients) all have questions that they're desperate to have answered. And what better way to answer those questions than with content marketing.
