However, because it directly involved with human lives, it is the most strictly regulated and potentially confusing industry.

Years ago, marketing for the healthcare industry was pretty non-existent because competition was less and the options were pretty clear. However, as consumer behaviors have changed and more options have opened up in recent years, it's more important than ever to have a strong marketing plan in place. Marketers must listen and adapt to consumers in order to stay relevant. Learn how to pay attention to consumer preferences and speak in a way they can relate to.
