Why You Should Care About CCPA Right Now

David Reim, Chief Privacy Officer

In terms of social policy, California is often considered a bellwether state. If California votes it in, other states better pay attention. And, although it isn’t the largest, the state of California holds a great deal of influence. The Golden State is the fifth largest economy in the world and is projected to surpass 40 million residents by 2019—representing approximately one out of every eight U.S. citizens (12.5 percent). California also has 12 percent of the nation's physicians.

Given the state’s impact, it’s no wonder that the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is becoming an important topic. Although the CCPA does not go into effect until January 1, 2020, there are crucial considerations you need to start thinking about right now.

Aggregate Data Is Not Enough: The Case For Individual-Level Physician Data

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

When you go out to dinner with friends, chances are you don’t all order the same meal or request your food to be prepared the same way. Most restaurants try to accommodate individual preferences. Pharma marketers also need to go to the same lengths to serve up content tailored to meet their physician’s specific tastes.

This requires capturing data on an individual level so you can begin to know your physicians and what they care about. Such insights can be the difference between marketing success and failure.

Beyond The Basics: How Audience Identity Data Enhances Email Marketing

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

When pharma marketers think about email campaigns, metrics like opens and click-throughs immediately come to mind. It’s nearly impossible to develop successful campaigns without these fundamental measurements.

Yet newer metrics are equally valuable. That’s because the next generation of digital measurement provides individualized data about healthcare professionals (HCPs) who visit medical websites. With audience identity data and digital journey data, pharma brands can connect the dots between email and website marketing in order to produce highly effective, integrated digital campaigns.

Don’t Get Hooked By A Bad Email List

Jerrad Rickard, Director of Product Management: Email

Growing up, my parents always told me, “You get what you pay for.” The unsaid message was not to be tempted by bargain prices for things too good to be true. Sometimes they were talking about the importance of selecting reputable local service providers for things like auto repairs and home maintenance. Other times they were referring to saving up for quality restaurants and vacation destinations. I grew up learning the value of investing my own hard-earned money wisely. The sting of disappointment in a cheap product or service far outlasted the joy of saving a few bucks up front.

The same adage also holds true when it comes to educating physicians about your products. If your marketing campaign is worth your time, effort, and cost, your investment will pay off in the results you can expect. The best place to start is by ensuring you’re using a high-quality physician email list to create segmented messages to engage your recipients.

5 Ways To Build Authentic Relationships With Physicians

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

We all know the stereotype of the used car salesman trying desperately to sell someone a vehicle that they don’t need or want. Perhaps the shopper is looking for a compact car, but the salesperson is pushing an SUV. This effectively halts the sales conversation and leaves the shopper running for the door.

 While this scenario is often played from a comical angle in sitcoms and movies, it can also drive home a serious reminder for pharma marketers: Know your physicians and listen to what they want. This insight is essential to forming authentic alliances so you can deliver the desired information through your website and email marketing.
