Why you need a specialist medical writer to write your health or medical blog

Last year I (Sarah McKay) attended a seminar on blogging, website content creation and online marketing … this blog post summarises some of what I learnt.

Blogging is the single best way to attract new visitors to your website

In order to get found by the right customers you need to create educational, evidence-based health and medical content that speaks to them and answers their questions.

How often should you blog to attract visitors to your health or medical website?

A 2012 study by Hubspot showed:

  1. Blogs are a key component for content marketing strategies that are designed to attract visitors who can be educated and converted.
  2. B2B companies that blog 1-2 times per month generate 70% more leads than those that don’t blog.
  3. Companies that increase the number of blog posts from 3-5 per month to 6-8 nearly double their monthly lead count!
  4. Companies with 101-200 website pages generate 2.5x more leads than those with 50 or fewer.

It’s not just about quantity, it is about providing quality content
