Entrepreneurs aren’t unfamiliar with risk.  In fact, the ones who stick around learn to embrace it with open arms.

But add a highly-unstable economy to the equation and the liabilities increase. 

Those working in content marketing have experienced many highs and lows since 2020.  

Honing in on the U.S. healthcare industry, how can these savvy men and women turn uncertainty to their favor?

By bucking traditional wisdom from the supposed experts. 

Freelance Social Media Haven

Healthcare social media is highly regulated and known for being dry and unexciting.  Overcoming this preconceived notion is the first hurdle for entrepreneurs.

Without the resources to compete with content mills and agencies, freelance medical writers face another dilemma.

How can they position their services effectively on mainstream social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter?  

One issue lies in Big Tech favoring these larger companies.  Secondly, they can’t put out more content as a solo worker.  Nor can they match their ad budget.

Blaze Your Own Trail

I’d like to offer my own small business as a case study.

Because I drowned out most of the advice on where to market my business, I’ve been blessed with amazing clients.

Taking a prayerful risk on alternative social media has helped me move out of the startup stage.  So I know it works!

Niched into holistic medicine, has become the digital home for my freelance writing.  Since 2016 the company has weathered every storm imaginable and come out more resilient.

And not only that, but its user base has continued to grow without any sign of letting up.  This includes prospective clients for entrepreneurial-minded writers.

Recent Gab updates to aid your business:

  • Launched a PayPal alternative with a lower per transaction fee
  • Opened up their YouTube alternative to all users
  • Improved their Facebook Marketplace alternative 
  • Granted more control for group owners to prevent bots and spam

Suffice it to say, you now have a much greater chance of connecting with those who’d benefit from your services.

Dare to be different in your messaging and where you choose to spend your advertising dollars.  Because history has favored those who’ve taken that calculated risk. | Gabpay blog image
