Health apps have taken the world by storm. Since the dawn of the smartphone, we have relied on these apps to take care of our mental health, plan our workout routines, attend virtual doctor’s appointments, and much more.

However, in recent years, we have seen the popularity of health apps grow exponentially. Factors such as the shift to home workouts during lockdown, health-consciousness brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, sky-high costs of living, and the rise of health influencers on social media have led to astounding success for a number of health apps. Now’s the time to kick your marketing into gear and get your brand’s fair share of success in this booming industry. But how?

Marketing a health product, particularly in a digital world, comes with unique challenges, including talking about sensitive health-related topics and building trust with your audience when it comes to data handling, while also satisfying the strict E-E-A-T guidelines put in place by Google for YMYL websites. There’s a lot to consider! Our report provides an expansive industry review, looking at the key health trends brands must acknowledge this year and practical strategies to achieve your digital ambitions for years to come – whatever health product you sell!

eBook synopsis

We’ll take a deep dive into the up-and-coming health app market, looking closely at a wide variety of app categories such as menstrual health, fitness, mental health, and virtual doctors apps. We explore the reasoning behind the recent boom in health apps with factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the cost of living crisis having pushed consumers to seek at-home, cheaper alternatives to traditional gym memberships and personal trainers, which has paved the way for apps to take centre stage. 

Our report reveals some of the best marketing strategies and tactics that can be used to promote health apps and brands. Such tactics include trust building, influencer marketing, E-E-A-T considerations, valuable content, free trials, tone of voice, and search engine optimisation – to name a few. You’ll be equipped with plenty of actionable, expert insights to put into practice and use to promote your own products and services in both the health and SaaS industries, as well as health SaaS more specifically.
