It’s no secret that the healthcare industry is at least two years behind other industries in its use of content marketing. Government regulations—think HIPAA laws and the Affordable Care Act—are making it increasingly difficult to know what information can be included in outgoing communications.

However, just because it’s more difficult doesn’t mean there isn’t a need or an audience for healthcare content marketing. Pew Research found that 72 percent of Internet users looked online for health information in 2012.

Let’s face it — we live in an increasingly personalized world. There are digital locations where everything we click on causes subsequent pages to become tailored to our needs. In fact, purchasing decisions are driven by what that website’s algorithm calculates a visitor will like based on his navigation.

So what can manufacturing companies do to get in on this personalization trend? Technology makes it easier than ever to serve visitors’ best interests, getting them the information they need to make an important buying decision.

Ready? Start by thinking from the perspective of your buyers. They have limited time and want to cut through irrelevant information to get to what matters most to them.

Personalization can help avoid this problem and connect customers to the products and services they need most.

Here are five ways manufacturing companies can get started personalizing their websites.
