Comprendia Free Workshop March 21 2013: Creating A Successful Life Science Marketing Plan

Some great leader probably once said “The first step to success is having a good plan.” While this seems like a no brainer, some life science companies think that they are too small or busy to write a formal document. We also found in our 2012 life science marketing survey that many of you are disappointed with your return on investment (ROI) for your efforts, especially with digital and social media. The online revolution brings powerful tools, and the successful life science marketing plans will combine them with traditional marketing strategies and lead-generating tactics. Our free hour long March 21st 2013 workshop webinar will teach you how to develop and refine your marketing plan to meet your goals, and you will receive: A detailed description and “how to” for each section of a life science marketing plan, including: Customer profiling Competitive analysis Baseline metrics Strategic plan Positioning, messaging, and voice Tactical schedule Budget Forecasting and ROI A life science marketing plan template combining traditional, digital, and social media strategies and tactics Examples of life science company campaigns that integrate traditional and new media well Note: this workshop is designed to help those who market and sell non-FDA requlated products.

Need Life Science Social Media Content? Let Us Create A Custom RSS Feed For You

We stress the importance of good content in our training and workshops, it is the cornerstone of a successful life science or biotechnology social media strategy. Content can be fully original, such as a blog post written by one of your company’s scientists about their research, or you can share links, news, presentations from others on third party applications such as Twitter or LinkedIn, as long as you credit them properly. Both original and shared content benefit from reviewing updates from the web or social networks regularly, and a good way to do this is through RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds. RSS feeds do the work for you, telling you when content all over the web is updated, and we can create a customized feed for you based on your needs. See this example of a drug discovery blogs feed we created, or the San Diego Biotech News feed. The information can also be sent as email. Just fill out the Custom Life Science RSS form and we’ll do the rest! We think you’ll also find that a custom feed will help you stay on top of your industry, whether you’re in R&D or Marketing. As always, contact us if […]
