Happy New Year!
This is likely my last post for 2012. Thank you all for your participation on this site whether you’ve subscribed or just read occasionally.
If you follow me at Medical Marketing, you know I preach that a blog (like this) is the purest form of social media.
A special thank you to those who leave comments or ask questions. The real value of a blog is the transparency displayed when and question is asked (by the reader) …and answered (by me or another reader).
This provides real value to other readers…those who have similar questions and problems.
So thank you for helping make this site so valuable to others.
The video is simply a way to say hello and to introduce myself and this site to new visitors. It will be interesting to see if this has any impact by allowing you to “hear” me. Over the past few years, I discovered the importance of personal transparency for a physician. It seemed logical to add a video.
Special thanks to my friends Marijo and Foster. The video was a result of almost 50 attempts. Speaking perfectly for 1 minute is harder than I thought (not to mention trying not to be too stiff at the same time).
I am hoping to improve visibility on various social media platforms for the new year. Specifically, I’ll be publishing more videos on Youtube and will try to be more diligent about my activity on Facebook.
By the way, “liking” me on Facebook will improve exposure for this site. I’d appreciate your support.
Amy and I have been busy with Medical Marketing Enterprises. Since August, she has been working with our company full time. Her efforts allow me to develop this site and maintain its value all the while keeping up with technology and advances in Web 2.0.
What Does This Mean?
It is so easy to remain committed to this website. It has long been an obvious way to educate and teach patients, but this year has taught me how powerful this site can be to develop relationships, however, it is not a “one way” endeavor. Yes, my articles may pique interest, but the most powerful aspect of this site is the trust you show by leaving comments and asking questions.
This communal effort is the strength of this blog (and any good social media platform). Together, I hope we can continue this effort and serve as an example to others.
Happy Holidays, thank you and Happy New Year!
