Social media management in the healthcare sector

JC Social Media has extensive experience in the healthcare sector. In fact, it is the single largest sector the business works within. Healthcare is a broad and complex sector and, depending on its nature, it can be tricky to market a healthcare business. However, given social media’s broad scope and wide range of tools, there’s often an effective method to achieve your goals.

Below are some of the campaigns and companies we’ve represented with or are currently representing. We also work with healthcare organisations to help with social media governance and stakeholder advice. If you’d like to know more, contact us here.

Social media marketing for healthcare

Social media should not be ignored by any business whose audience, whether that’s a consumer audience or a commercial audience, is active on social media. Platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn are incredibly powerful and can be the perfect way to reach new audiences with the right strategy in place.

Whether you’re in the tech space, have a consumer healthcare product, are a healthcare organisation or are operating in a business-to-business capacity, social media marketing should play a role in your growth strategy. Social campaigns can integrate with your direct mail, e-newsletters and SEO marketing and work to elevate brand awareness, web traffic and leads as required.
