When using AR or VR for digital marketing, businesses must use it to place the audience at the core of the narrative, presenting a novel opportunity to live and breathe the brand mission, treatment, or product.

FREMONT, CA: Digital has already altered the pharmaceutical and healthcare business in more than one way, including more significant levels of transparency, drug development, and patient communication. Besides, due to its unparalleled cost-effectiveness, digital marketing strategies provide various meaningful ways to connect and treat potential clients and customers.

Explore below the key trends and tactics that will help marketers in the pharmaceutical industry use digital marketing to endorse, engage, and grow.

1. Value-Driven Content Creation

Today, through mobile applications, online communities, and a wealth of web content, people now have extensive access to a range of pharma-based insights. By generating targeted, value-driven branded content that delivers prospective or current patients’ insight into pertinent information, businesses can grow their audience significantly.

By presenting answers to common patient pain points in an inspiring, engaging way in conjunction with demonstrating transparency, firms will grow the audience while fostering trust and positioning the brand as a thought-leader. Therefore, when building a campaign around a specific product or topic, developing a dynamic message that will hearten a wealth of user-generated content, employing an articulate hashtag as a key for social sharing is vital.

2. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)

By 2022, the consumer VR software market will grow to a worth of $16.3 billion. Pharmaceutical companies can use AR and VR to break the walls between their business and partners, clients, patients, or consumers. A few companies are already using immersive applications and tactics. These tools place people at the center of the business and provide information and care through virtual clinics and product demonstrations.

3. AI-Powered Assistants and Messaging Applications

Masses of businesses worldwide are using messaging apps to engage with prospects and spark up meaningful dialogues. For the pharmaceutical sector, this trend presents an exceptional opportunity to hold personal conversations with customers, patients, or partners. By using autonomous machine learning chatbots to enhance organization competence, conduct critical tasks, answer client, patient, or customer queries, pharmaceutical brands stand to increase productivity while improving their overall customer experience offerings. It is anticipated to surpass both product and price as the leading brand differentiator by the end of 2020.

Chatbots are incredibly versatile and are earning the trust of the public all the time. Today, over 37 percent of Americans would want to use a chatbot in an emergency.
