5 Content Marketing Trends To Watch In 2019

5 Content Marketing Trends To Watch In 2019 | Social Media and Healthcare | Scoop.it

The marketing world is changing every day. New tools and technologies emerge, fresh thinkers put new spins on old tactics, and the bar for quality continues to rise as audiences everywhere are exposed to more content in a day than they could possibly process.

 

For all the changes that have taken place over the years, one thing is certain: Content marketing is here to stay. In fact, this time last year, it was estimated that the content marketing industry would be worth more than $400 billion by 2021.

 

And as content marketing continues to grow and our approaches to it become more mature, these five trends will shape the way companies (and their audiences) create and consume content in 2019.

 

1. Content marketing is becoming marketing.

 

2. Strategy will become more essential.

 

3. Customer success will emerge as the new frontier.

 

4. The marketing funnel will change shape.

 

5. Distribution will remain a driver of success.

nrip's insight:

At @plus91 we have been big believers in marketing being digital and content driven. When in 2011-12 we decided to shift to Digital to create our own go-to-market strategy, a number of people were not convinced it made sense to use it. But we saw the possibilities and decided it would be the right choice for us years down and the years proved that call was spot on. Today, with our direct connection with over 210000 medical professionals and over 16 million care customers,  we are in ourselves a community. 

Which is what prompted us to also setup out Digital outreach consulting hub to offer our insights and services to other healthcare providers and medical device firms who were either curious to learn about or were wanting to adopt digital media as a market outreach possibility. 

 

Since 2012 we have been experimenting with new digital content marketing ideas and then bringing those tried and tested strategies to reap benefits for our customers. We have experimented with new strategies in all aspects of digital marketing, from Social Media, SEO to Curation and Drip feed newsletters.  If there are areas of special interest you wish to learn more about,  just drop us a note via the form on the right, leave a comment, or DM us on twitter at @plus91

Social Media Can Boost Disease Outbreak Monitoring, Study Finds

Social Media Can Boost Disease Outbreak Monitoring, Study Finds | Social Media and Healthcare | Scoop.it

Monitoring social media websites like Twitter could help health officials and providers identify in real time severe medical outbreaks, allowing them to more efficiently direct resources and curb the spread of disease, according to a San Diego State University studypublished last month in the Journal of Medical Internet Research,Medical News Today reports.


Study Details


For the study, lead researcher and San Diego State University geography professor Ming-Hsiang Tsou and his team used a program to monitor tweets that originated within a 17-mile radius of 11 cities. The program recorded details of tweets containing the words "flu" or "influenza," including:


  • Origin;
  • Username;
  • Whether the tweet was an original or a retweet; and
  • Any links to websites in the tweet.


Researchers then compared their findings with regional data based on CDC's definition of influenza-like illness.

The program recorded data on 161,821 tweets that included the word "flu" and 6,174 tweets that included the word "influenza" between June 2012 and the beginning of December 2012.


According to the study, nine of the 11 cities exhibited a statistically significant correlation between an uptick in the number of tweets mentioning the keywords and regional outbreak reports. In five of the cities -- Denver, Fort Worth, Jacksonville, San Diego and Seattle -- the algorithm noted the outbreaks sooner than regional reports.

Research on social media......

Drew Hodges's curator insight, February 19, 2015 5:50 PM

This is a cool article to show the real life change that social media is creating. Before it was stated that it would take up to two weeks to detect an outbreak of a disease but now with social media it can be done in a day. 

This article really shows how social media is becoming a part of our everyday life and is taking on roles that we probably didn't expect it to. 

However with the number of users increasing it is important to have tools that help us monitor the large amount of data that is present. 

Its no good having all this information if we cannot harness it's true potential, like the one illustrated in this article for disease break out.
