From SEO strategies to need-to-know digital trends, these podcasts will help you to keep your bases covered and your audience engaged.
The Ten Minute Healthcare Marketing Podcast
Though this podcast stays true to its name, running no longer than ten minutes each episode, you won’t find a more comprehensive and resonant inside look at online healthcare marketing. Tyler Down’s podcast, which you can find on iTunes, is geared primarily towards physicians, but it uses practical, step-by-step tips to cover each of its subjects, from content creation, to backlinking and SEO, to increasing web traffic. No matter what area of the medical industry you’re marketing in, there’s something essential here for you.
Healthcare Marketing Underground
Also dubbed the “Arrogant Healthcare Marketing Bastards,” this podcast features fiery host Chris Bovolo, who tends to have a confrontational take on medical marketing and the industry at large. Always opinionated, gruff, and of course, arrogant, Chris and his guests are as wildly entertaining as they are informative, making this show a suitable replacement for the zany morning-hour radio programs that accompany so many commutes.
Get Social Health
Hosted by Janet Kennedy, this show takes an in-depth look at how medical practitioners, marketers, and hospitals are using social media to educate and grow their audiences, as well as offer indispensable insight into best practices for navigating complicated HIPAA standards. While many medical marketers are hesitant to use social media for outreach, Janet Kennedy shows her listeners how to embrace it. This program is highly-rated for a reason.
