SK&A, A Cegedim Company, a leading provider of healthcare information solutions and research, today launched the OneKey Minute, a web video series aimed at advising b-to-b marketers, consultants and other healthcare-data users on best practices for benefiting from data assets.
According to SK&A’s 2011 Channel Utilization Report, 62 percent of OneKey data delivered to clients is used for direct-mail campaigns. With Crain's BtoB Magazine recently citing that a majority of b-to-b marketers are struggling in their use of data, targeting and measurement, SK&A-Cegedim has an opportunity to educate the b-to-b healthcare marketing community in this capacity.
“It is critical that b-to-b marketers excel in their endeavors using OneKey contact and profiling data,” said Dave Escalante, Vice President and General Manager of SK&A and OneKey. “The OneKey team is a partner to the healthcare-marketing community. We have a unique position and opportunity to provide valuable and reliable market research tips, best practices and insights. With OneKey as the data foundation, this video series should empower users to maximize the potential of their marketing strategies to produce the results they desire.”
The OneKey Minute features practical and concise how-to video segments, hosted by an actual marketing specialist from OneKey’s team. Episode one discusses the dos and don’ts of email marketing to physician audiences, including the importance of using quality email addresses and targeting recipients within the content of emails. Viewers can also submit their own questions to be addressed in the video series.
