ICYMI – PR, Marketing and Social Media Advice from the Amendola Blog

Dec 15, 2020

Award-winning health IT agency offers guidance applicable in virtually any industry

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 15, 2020 – Amendola Communications has built an outstanding reputation as one of the leading public relations, marketing, and social media firms serving healthcare, health IT, and life sciences organizations. So it’s no surprise that its blog, peppered with contributions from the entire team, would become a favorite destination for information among organizations, reporters and others within those industries.

While healthcare is always on their minds, the reality is the advice proffered by the award-winning agency extends well beyond its core healthcare market. In fact, as these posts demonstrate, most of the content generated and topics covered are applicable in virtually any industry. Here’s a quick sample from the past few months.

The post “Revisiting ‘The Four Ps’ of Marketing During a Pandemic” takes this topic on head-on. It shows that these tried-and-true principles still apply, but must be adjusted to reflect the reality in which we’re currently living. READ MORE >>

Then there is the agency’s advice on “Breaking Into the Policy World Through Public Relations.” Government policy can have a profound effect on organizations as well as industries. Yet many in both simply shrug their shoulders at the prospect of influencing policy, assuming it requires a significant investment in heavy-duty lobbyist firms. Yet that isn’t always the case. This post describes strategies organizations in a variety of industries can use to help ensure policy decisions go their way – or at least do not work against them. READ MORE >>

Finally, for those interested in the personal side of business there is this heartfelt homage from agency CEO Jodi Amendola to the influence her mother has had on her career. Written shortly after receiving the news that Kamala Harris would become the nation’s first female Vice President, “Women Leaders: A Tribute to My Mom,” recounts the lessons her mom, Thelma Kurzweil, taught her throughout her life, including the importance of just being a good person and taking responsibility for your own happiness. Sadly, Thelma passed away shortly after Jodi’s blog was published in November and we are not sure if she had a chance to read it but, as Jodi said, “Nothing was left unsaid.” READ MORE >>
