The Multiplier Effect of Digital Marketing

The Multiplier Effect of Digital Marketing - MedTouch ebook cover

// Sponsored Post //

Digital Marketing is changing at breakneck speed, but hospital marketers who combine three emerging technologies will gain outsized results, especially in a highly competitive market.

While retailers have long been able to implement advanced digital marketing techniques, technical and legal restrictions have hampered hospital marketers from gaining the actionable insights that are more readily available in traditional industries.

The Good News? Hospitals Are No Longer Stuck

MedTouch combines three emerging disciplines that, when programmatically coordinated together, radically change the landscape for healthcare marketers:

  • Building combinations of data-driven ads at massive scale
  • Leveraging hyper-locality to match consumers to your digital geography
