Silverlink eBook: 13 Common Pitfalls In Consumer Health Engagement

After working on consumer communications in healthcare for most of the  past decade, I realized that there were some common pitfalls that happen.  Many of them are pretty straightforward, but when rushed, they may get forgotten.  I worked with Dr. Jan Berger (our Chief Medical Officer) to identify a short list of them, and then the Silverlink marketing team pulled them together in a beautiful eBook

Each of the pitfalls is set up with a quote and a great image:

Then, there is a brief description to explain the pitfall on the page across from it:

What are some of the pitfalls:

  • Thinking you represent the customer
