Sounds simple, but post-event nurturing of leads can be the most challenging part of hosting a successful event.

Social media marketing is an integral part of a modern business. When done right, it helps increase brand awareness, generate leads, and foster relationships with customers. When done poorly, it can negatively impact customer perceptions and hurt your brand. With ever-changing social trends and epic Twitter smackdowns, it can seem daunting to create consistently good, quality content. However, using social media is essential if you want to stay relevant with your customer base, no matter what industry you’re in. Personally, I scope out the Instagram page of companies before I buy anything from their brands. For many people, that’s the quickest way to get a pulse on a brand. You can tell a lot about a company (or even a person!) from a social media page. For example, are disgruntled customers tweeting at the brand, or leaving nasty comments about not receiving their orders on time or getting a defective product? Comments like those might cause you to question making a purchase. Understanding this is a key part of your overall marketing strategy.

Healthcare risks are frightening. A baby is misidentified at birth, or when being discharged from the hospital to go home. A patient is given the wrong medication, and has an allergic reaction. A message doesn’t get from the medical staff to a doctor in sufficient time to deal with an emergency. These are only three of the risks that can be reduced in—or even eliminated from— today’s healthcare settings, simply by using the right barcode scanner. But how do you choose the right scanner for your customer? Looking at how they’ll be employed is a good place to start.
