We’re trying something different with Pollen this week. Instead of a story from healthcare, we have something else we think you’ll find useful.

Pardon me for being the 796th person to tell you social media is important and you should be creating content for it to build your personal and professional brand.

If you’re a doctor right now, especially a gynaecologist or a fertility expert, you belong to one of two categories.

You’ve either already started creating content, and you have or haven’t seen some success with it, OR You’ve given up on it and figured there are other ways to build your brand and business.

At a time when it feels like everyone and their dog is an influencer, you’d be surprised at how many people belong to the second group of fed up comrades. Which is exactly why this edition of Pollen is built to hype them up.

Learnt from following the journeys of some of India’s most successful creators, both doctors and otherwise, this list is a comprehensive, and almost exhaustive guide to content creation in healthcare.

Find an intersection between the things you’re good at and things that your audience really values, right now
