Social Content Solutions for Healthcare with Dr. Mike Sevilla

On this podcast, I found myself answering questions about Social Content Solutions for Healthcare with Dr. Mike Sevilla. One of my early podcast guests, Mike Sevilla, is a dedicated Family Practice Physician, and social media early adopter. We talked about our convention travels, have a debate about SnapChat and explore the challenges of social media for the small healthcare practice. Mike was interested in learning more about the Get Social Health Academy, the monthly subscription service Social Content Solutions and the Membership site scheduled to launch early this summer. Give a listen to the podcast or drop in at the timestamps below.

Authentic Storytelling with Christoph Trappe

Christoph Trappe is a content marketer who has spoken worldwide on the topic. What he wants you to think about is being “authentic” to communicate your organization’s mission. In our conversation on Get Social Health we discuss the importance of building your brand with smart, consistent content (that does not have to be exclusively yours). Christoph offers some excellent advice on the timing and longevity of posts plus how to re-purpose blog content to give posts more exposure. We also discussed the launch of his new book, “Get Real: Telling Authentic Stories for Long-Term Success.” Listen to our conversation or drop in at the time-stamps below.
