  34. 34. Mayo Clinic: Aggressive on Social Media
  35. 35. 5 ways how Mayo Clinic uses social media Here are 5 ways how Lee Aase, the director of the Center for Social Media at Mayo Clinic uses social media Youtube: YouTube is one of a hospital’s most successful outlets in terms of marketing itself to potential clients. At Mayo, we utilize this for patients to highlight our areas of expertise and focus. Twitter: For Mayo, word of mouth has been the best way to get our name out there for the past 100 years, but Twitter has taken that model to the next level Facebook: On Facebook, we can build a community of former patients, current patients and future patients. Facebook acts as a forum for patients to interact with the hospital and with one another, but Facebook lets its community go into more depth Blogs: Blogs are a great way to publish timely news. Blogs also offer the added benefit of tending to fare well in search engine optimization Cross promotion: We utilise as many social media outlets as possible and emphasise on cross promotion, for example, taking YouTube clips and posting them on the hospital’s Facebook wall or Twitter feed. If done properly, health organizations will see an increase in patient volumes.
