Physician referrals may be a specialty medical clinic’s entree, but patient referrals can be a substantial side dish. Establishing referral sources can be tricky. Most specialists rely on physician referrals. But with our ever more media driven world, physicians are skipping the middleman and going directly to the patients themselves.

In an earlier blog, I described some interesting tips I learned in a social media workshop at a nonprofit leadership conference earlier this month. Bill Natalzia Northeast Regional Director of Celebrate Recovery did an excellent job. There was plenty of great information in the workshop, and I was glad I scarfed down my turkey sandwich and skipped half my lunch break to get a good seat.
In the past, blogs were like online journals where people wrote about their experiences. Today, blogging has transformed into a tool nonprofits can use to regularly post and promote content about their cause. As an inbound marketing agency, we write over 30 blogs a month for our clients. We've seen the benefits nonprofits can reap from posting articles to their website. We’ve also seen some of the common pitfalls nonprofit organizations can fall into when they start blogging.
Last week, I had the opportunity to be packed in a tiny orange room with about 100 other people for a workshop at a leadership conference for a nonprofit organization that works with addicts and domestic abuse survivors. The speaker, Bill Natalzia Northeast Regional Director of Celebrate Recovery, and staff did their best to cram as many of us in as possible.
Inbound marketing is a bit like archery. You can’t just shoot up in the air and expect to hit your target. To be successful you have to aim strategically. Nonprofit organizations in particular tend to want to reach as many people as they can. They often do this by making their inbound marketing campaigns as generic as possible. Ultimately, in an effort to please everyone, those generic inbound marketing campaigns will reach no one. When compiling your marketing campaign, you want to aim at your buyer persona.
In the early days of blogging, a blog was basically an online journal. People blogged about having a wedding or losing weight. They used their blogs to track how far they had come and to contemplate how much further they had to go. Putting the information out on the internet gave these bloggers the support of their followers on their journey.

Three years ago, a European study found that teenagers were leaving Facebook for other social sites like Twitter, Instagram, and SnapChat. It was suspected that as older users began setting up accounts, teens sought a platform where they could hang out online with their friends without their parents seeing everything on their feed. This conclusion the led the anthropologist on the research team, Daniel Miller a professor of material culture of University College London to pronounce Facebook as “dead and buried” to the Millennial generation.
Let’s say you’ve taken the time to write a blog post for your B2B website. You’ve created a rich and compelling story as full of reliable statistics and practical information as it is emotion. You considered your audience when writing your piece and you’re sure it’s going to be a hit. You press the publish button and voilà! It’s out there for everyone to see and you eagerly await the response you get. You come back a week later and find “gasp” no one read it! What went wrong?
