Why Use HITMC Insights? A Content Marketer Viewpoint

Content marketers love exploring awesome content. We like to see what is getting good engagement and jumping on it to increase the likelihood our articles/posts are read. Even better, we love finding gaps in what’s being covered so that we can be first to to sink our teeth into it. 

The challenge, however, is trying to figure out what’s actually trending versus what’s a tired topic. It’s very hard to gain visibility into what your buyers are reading on the web. Most of us only have the data on what they are reading on our own website (a very narrow view). That’s essentially what Colin Hung, Editor at Healthcare IT Today said: Crafting content based only on your own website and email data is like trying to drive with a snow-covered windshield. HITMC Insights give you better visibility into what healthcare buyers are opening and reading.” 

HITMC Insights was developed to help address this challenge. It’s a monthly report that analyzes 18 health IT publications to uncover the topics that are trending in #healthIT. HITMC Insights is new, and we’re pretty excited about it. We thought it might be helpful to put together a quick guide on why Insights is a valuable tool to add to your marketing kit.

HITMC Insights allows you to have the best of both worlds. Ride the wave of what’s popular or like Claire, maybe you choose to zig when everyone else zags!
