How to Drive ROI: Creating Marketing Campaigns that Work

Posted by Jennifer Keller on Oct 17, 2016 10:28:15 PM

Mass marketing, shotgun marketing, spray and pray marketingcall it what you like, but if your marketing strategy can be described in any of these ways, you’re likely wasting valuable money, creating marketing programs with no trackable ROI, alienating large patient groups, and missing opportunities to connect with your preferred population.

Shotgun marketing can be defined as an attempt to raise awareness about a product or service to a large, non-specific group of people, rather than advertising to a specific demographic. There’s a chance that your marketing could hit the right population group, but there’s no guarantee. Not to mention that if you do, there’s likely to be a lot of waste. With this approach, there is no data-based assurance that you’re aiming for patients who actually need the service your hospital is offering.
