In less than a year, Mercy Health System’s program has identified hundreds of new bariatric patients in the Philadelphia region using a marketing campaign that focuses on web, email and social media. This digital campaign is fueled with bariatric recipes and articles from Baldwin Publishing.
“The first quarter delivered 134 calls to the call center asking for appointments, and almost 30 appointment requests came from the website,” says Gabrielle DeTora, Interim Vice President of Marketing for Mercy Health System.
Weight loss surgery patients need to make drastic dietary changes following surgery. Health eCooking® video recipes teach them how to prepare low calorie bariatric recipes. Web articles on weight loss procedures; nutrition advice and fitness build relationships through social sharing on Mercy’s Bariatric Facebook page.
A bariatric eNewsletter, also from Baldwin Publishing, engages people considering the procedure and showcases Mercy’s long-term relationships with bariatric patients. An integrative campaign including radio, print and billboards across the city send thousands of web visits to http://www.mercybariatrics.org/.
“Baldwin's bariatric recipes and articles are an easily accessible marketing tool that helps weight loss surgery patients succeed. Baldwin Publishing's holistic approach to bariatric marketing is extremely valuable,” says DeTora.
