Getting your printed content in front of your target audience is critical in healthcare marketing and managing it on your own can be a challenging prospect. Often, complex, and technical medical information needs explaining, so a printed marketing piece by way of a DLE or A5 brochure is an excellent solution.
The physical distribution offers a few options, that is nationwide, Main city met, or by a DHB/City region. Then consider how you will practically get the information in front of consumers and healthcare professionals.
I had a conversation with a Communications Manager from an organisation last week, and she explained their dilemma:
- Find all the GP clinics by going through a directory or purchase a GP “list” with addresses.
- Then get their office administrator to put the brochures into piles, make the address labels, include a letter, and then post or courier the packs.
- She quickly realized this would have a considerable opportunity cost, admin and postage costs as well as taking a lot of internal effort.
I pointed out that medical centers get inundated with information, and all too often it goes into the big round recycling file.
They quickly considered a paid service like MediBoard that can offer guaranteed distribution and placement of their health content, and then provide meaningful reporting on results.
