Don’t Get Hooked By A Bad Email List

Jerrad Rickard, Senior 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

Roger Korman, President

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.

Roger Korman, President

These days, nearly everyone who works with data is concerned about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Fair enough. Every company bigger than a peanut stand needs to give GDPR some thought. Its guidelines are far-reaching, and penalties for non-compliance are stiff.

Still, GDPR is hardly the end of the world for healthcare marketers, particularly those who have invested in compliant data partners. Though GDPR doesn’t take effect until May 25, DMD has been handling healthcare professional data responsibly for years.
