The problem: Your team is writing solid health articles, but no one’s reading them. With a sea of content to choose from — from your actual healthcare competitors to the looming problem of AI bots — “informative” is no longer enough. It has to be a conversation. The solution: A few strategies to make your content stand out. This session will share what happened when one health system decided to modernize its health writing — using readability scores, Google trends, stronger calls to action, metrics and more — and realized a 20% month-over-month (MoM) increase in time on page and a 20% MoM increase in reading ease. When readers began spending more time with articles, and better understanding what they read, they also started clicking more: As part of a broader strategy, the team earned a 406% year-over-year increase in lead conversions. You’ll learn the tips and process that led to these wins, plus look at the metrics you can use to measure yours.
Learning Objectives
  1. Learn 10 simple tips to master the conversational writing style that modern readers expect.
  2. Develop unique learning activities to share these skills with your team. 
  3. Discover two key metrics to track your progress toward more engaging content.
