‘’Social media isn’t just a social outlet,
but essential for most wellness businesses.’’
The use of social media, the foremost of digital media, in the healthcare industry has skyrocketed visibly. Why is this so? Well because a healthcare provider has to be present where his target group (patients) is looking for him. Digital Media builds a bridge between the healthcare providers and the seekers and enables them to do so. However, the strategy behind leveraging the power of social media varies from professional to professional.
Today let us consider nutrition marketing using digital media and its contribution to enhancing patient experience, here client experience.
Nutritionists for Today’s Age
Several Nutritionists have recognized the role of the internet and have penetrated social media platforms. However the number is not sizable which is why authentic information is scarce. There is a lot of half-truth being shared.
When it comes to nutrition, people must understand that somebody else’s diet plan cannot work in the same manner for him. Thus, following people can be good only to keep the motivation but not for copying them. Afterall, every body is composed differently.
TIP- Heard about nutrigenomics?
Nutrigenomics is a medium that helps you find out the right requirements of your body based on your DNA and enables you to customize your routine accordingly.
Just like someone else's diet may not work for everyone, someone else's marketing plan may not work for you.

Nutritionist Ankita Vaidya, Get Nutricrafted.
Ankita is extremely passionate about the science of Nutrigenomics and wants to share this secret with her clients and the rest of the world to empower people to make better health decisions. However, she experienced that explaining it can be complicated and sometimes boring. When she approached the Nth Sense team with this topic, we decided to explain it using comic strip-like characters. The complete strategy not only made it easy to understand but also pretty interesting and humorous as well. Ankita's clients were able to understand the importance of nutrigenomics way better through this approach and started showing a lot of inquiries.
Offline schools started again after a long gap of 2 years bringing relief but also raising concern in the minds of parents. The biggest challenge was easy and healthy lunch boxes! Being a mother herself, Ankita was concerned about this topic and wanted to help her fellow mothers. So Nth Sense and Ankita together thought of suggesting 5 easy to make, delicious & nutritious recipes for kids! However, considering Ankita's super busy schedule, Nth Sense shot the entire video on her behalf and helped her make everyday kids' lunch box an easy task.
