According to the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) data report, there are 1,833 accredited CME medical event organizers in the USA and this number is steadily rising by 7% each year. With over 27 million health-care professionals attending nearly 159,000 educational activities in previous year, CME USA organizers are bound to experience some tough competition.
In order to conduct a Sold-Out CME medical event, organizers have started implementing successful promotional campaigns to capture the attention of health-care professionals. You can promote your upcoming CME conference event by considering these 6 strategies of marketing:
- Email Campaigning
- Mobile Marketing
- Social Media Marketing
- Paid Digital Ads
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
- Performance Metrics
Email campaigning has the highest conversion rate compared to any other marketing method. Organizers need to keep in mind that emails must not be treated as spam or never opened by the end user. To avoid such glitches, subject line and user language play a pivotal role.
A recent study stated that about 96% of doctors use smartphones and tablets to view healthcare-related information. As an organizer consider using long-tail keywords – 3-4 word phrases- in search engines and create a mobile & tablet version of your website.
Social Media Marketing:
Social media marketing is breaking barriers through its reach, providing inside scoop, and making content visually appealing & engaging. CME organizers can utilize a variety of social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WordPress, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, Quora, Snapchat, WhatsApp, and Tumblr. The key is to engage your audience using pop quizzes, photo & video galleries, trivia, tidbits, webcast, testimonies, polling, ratings, and creating unique hashtags.
Paid Digital Ads
The advantages of paid digital ads are reach, both audience and demographic. These ads are designed to target a particular sector, age group, educational background, profession, location, and a need to attend CME conferences. This allows CME organizers to create ads that will boost the appearance of their events in search engines faster.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Do you want your website to appear first on Google search engines? If yes, then consider revamping your SEO. Search engine optimization (SEO) is a marketing strategy that uses certain keywords or phrases to rank your website in search engines. The result is referred as organic or natural results.
Performance Metrics are used to measure the effectiveness of a campaign across all marketing channels. Performance metrics are also known as key performance indicators (KPI.) They help you achieve your marketing goals by monitoring the digital marketing performance (paid ads), SEO progress, and social media growth.
