Of our Ethics and Advertising Policy
By Dr. David Edward Marcinko; FACFAS, MBA, CMP™
Thanks to the internet, doctors and medical professionals have direct access to potential patients, while financial advisors and management consultants have direct access to potential clients. So, linking these inter-related factions on the Medical Executive-Post is our raison d’etra. Throw in their penchant to opine, act as citizen journalists and compete free-lance style; and you get a lively and novel kind of business formed around these free-labor reporters, experts and new-media entrepreneurs.
What we Do
The ME-P provides an unbiased forum, exposure platform, and voice for our contributors. We are a healthcare consulting grid, with a new media collective intelligence publishing network for industry professionals seeking brand name exposure, test market acceptance and concept validation. We offer industry essays, insider columnists, interviews, case models, news reportage, and gossip; and moderated business forums with comments. We also aggregate niche articles and pertinent videos across the web, in a limited fashion. We have three part-time employees, ICs, and a host of dedicated volunteers.
Moving into new media may seem an odd step given the collapse of the print publishing business today, and the carnage inflicted on both the healthcare space and financial services sector. But, as a privately held subsidiary, we are not after media business. We don’t sell ads on the site. You won’t see any Google references, automated Adsense or other electronically generated classifieds, here. However, we may run promotions for selected business and strategic alliance partners. We do offer our own consulting services, and sell our own textbooks, handbooks, dictionaries and institutional print guide. We also promote our online education certification program – Certified Medical Planner™ – for financial advisors interested in the healthcare niche space. THINK: Doctor-Advisor-Administrator-Journalist-Consultant. But, all of these activities of course, predate the blog site.
Not Profit Driven
In other words, we are not a profit generating enterprise. Rather, we want to lead the professional discourse concerning the myriad of issues our business subsidiaries revolve around. To avoid issues of favoritism, we draw the line at product news and reviews. But, we do blog, opine, rant and rave to draw business to our portfolio of companies, and encourage other professionals and experts to do the same.
There are two ways to contribute to the Medical Executive-Post:
Rest assured – our loyalties are clear. First to medical professional and the healthcare space; then to physician focused and fiduciary financial advisors; and finally to medical practice management and business consultants; in that prioritized order.
