Healthcare Digital Marketing Services.
"Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have” was once said by Winston Churchill and surely the role of the healthcare industry is large in pursuing this asset across the globe. The healthcare workers mainly doctors have been the first go to people for mankind from old times whenever it came to health challenges. A simple 'nametag' at the doctor’s clinic would let the passing by people know about their existence. And from there on the promotion was through word of mouth. Then came the print, radio, directories and TV for promotion of healthcare goods and services. The purpose of advertising was well served for doctors and pharmas by these channels through the 20th century. With the internet revolution in the mid- 90s healthcare marketing had taken a radical turn and their industry looked at healthcare digital marketing services to talk about products and services offered by them. Beginning from local electronic directory listing with a mere contact number ,digital marketing in healthcare industry has moved forward to creating elaborate websites , upload educational health care videos , case studies , surgery videos , investigation equipment and method literature online.
