Social Media Strategies for Medical Communicators
Social media is a powerful tool for professional growth as well as marketing. There are various key social media platforms that allow medical communicators the ability to keep abreast of industry news as well as establish a brand and expertise in a particular area. Publication of good content, along with a creative distribution style are key to set yourself apart and to bring your marketing campaign to the next level. In this webinar, we will discuss how to use social media platforms for a traditional approach to social media awareness (social listening) and for new trends that can set your expertise apart from others (content curation). We will also discuss the importance of looking beyond these platforms to novel social media tools currently available for marketing. More information and register now.
