Marketing: it has its trends just like anything else. Social media platforms are constantly changing, algorithms award different types of content with organic reach, creators invent new styles and effects. Your marketing of yesterday should not be your marketing today. You need an approach that embraces the change in styles – more on that later. First, let’s talk about some key trends you need to watch for in your midwifery marketing:
- Video has gone vertical – TikTok Midwives and Instagram Reels Marketing
In case you’ve been living under a rock, vertical video is having major wins at the moment. Between TikTok and Instagram Reels, you need to be incorporating vertical video into your birth center marketing strategy. Remember the days where a simple promo video could serve your birth center for a while? No more. Your clients are looking for short-form vertical video, and you need to learn how to create that type of content that provides content in that format and plays to the platforms’ algorithms to help you distribute it.

It’s a place where you have ownership over reaching your current and potential audience over time. It’s where you can build a relationship without the rules and regulations and algorithms of the various social media platforms. Have you ever seen an account you follow get hacked and be shut down? Imagine if you didn’t also own your own audience list where you could reach out to your supporters! You should be utilizing email marketing for different objectives than your social media as well. We like to say that social media is where you get found, email is where you accomplish your goals. Do all of these tips sound like a lot of work for a midwife trying to just run a great birth center? Well, our advice would be to…
