Content marketing is important to healthcare brands. For many reasons. The idea of content marketing is to intersect the consumer with content that promotes an idea, spurs an action or engages the audience.

It is a targeted marketing approach that has quality, original content at its heart – hence, the infographic below – The Anatomy of Content Marketing from Content Plus.
