34: Turn your healthcare team into brand ambassadors

  • by
healthcare brand ambassadors

On this podcast I talk about how to promote your healthcare business on social media by empowering your employees to become ambassadors who spread your message in the local community.

Thanks to Instagram, influencers with a capital “I” are ubiquitous with selling most products these days. For healthcare services, though, influencers are seldomly appropriate. Even featuring patient stories or reviews means obtaining signed HIPAA forms and is only appropriate in certain areas of healthcare such as pediatrics or physical therapy. Most patients prefer privacy.

Employees, on the other hand, are proud to share stories and experiences about a job they love. Those who feel valued are more likely to spread the word about your practice or business if they are asked or have an incentive.

Much of your social media content needs to focus on providing value and serving your audience. But, sometimes, you also want to let your audience know how they can work with you.

In this podcast, I cover ideas for getting your employees to help you create content, share your content and spread your message.

    About Wendy:

    I help service providers stand out by telling their story on websites, emails and social media. When it comes to marketing, the greatest waste is an idea that fails to connect to its audience – not because it wasn’t a good idea but because it wasn’t packaged as a great story.

    My goal is to help health and wellness experts stand out with content marketing. I’ve worked in marketing communications for nearly 20 years and experienced firsthand the rapid pace of change in this space. I launched Sparkr Marketing to help you stay ahead in this age of information overload. I’ll help you filter through the countless marketing tactics to find the right ones to reach your target market. Most importantly, I help your business stay true to your story.
