This paper will reflect over a media strategy regarding Stanton Medical Group. It will reflect over positive and negative concerns to help. It will use articles from Forbes Magazines, one of the elites and most respected business magazines in the United States to address these concerns.
In the article, “Three Elements of an Effective Social Media Strategy,” it targets the negative concerns the Stanton Medical Group was facing.

Another approach is a commercial that shows the doctor actively listening and showing empathy to the patients.
The reasons this marketing process is needed because in health care it essential that people feel their doctors care. The doctor’s wants to belong a company that take cares of their patients and them. Aggressive harassing with doctors can put many doctors on the fence.

No matter how many scholarly articles, trade magazines’, the noblest is the word of mouth. The marketing strategy is to give the commercials with enough empathy and top rated technical’s to take care of patients. The marketing strategy is also to treat the doctors like a family.
In the news with the Obama Care, there are those doctors who are for it. Then there are some who are against it. It would be necessary as marketing tactics to decide the reasons for this. It can be done. An example of this is William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak MI. They have their main campus in Royal Oak and the second one in Troy.

In the health care field, it not only the patients that have to be targeted for marketing. It also the family of patients.

Again, the marketing strategy for them is to provide empathy, care and understanding. They must make the social trends with that same process. When they created their marketing ads, they need to keep this rudiment questions in mind. Would this be a place I want to bring my sick love one too?
