Pharmacy Marketing- Call 01444 231400
In our experience the pharmacy sector is one that has relied on a strategy of locating close to doctors surgeries as the primary means of attracting new patients. This is an approach that has served many traditional pharmacies well over the years but as many industries have discovered there is a rising threat from online retailers and mail order companies.
For a long time the pharmacy industry has been protected from the wider retail trend through prescriptions being physical slips that needed to be collected from the surgery. However with the introduction of the electronic prescription service (EPS) the location of the dispensing pharmacy no longer needs to be within striking distance of either the patient or the doctor. People are also more accustomed and trusting of online supplier than they were 10 years ago.
Using our 25 years of marketing experience, the team at Nova Direct have partnered with a number of pharmacy chains to develop their individual EPS conversion rates. We have designed a variety of letters and targeting techniques to attract new patients and provide protection against online pharmacies attracting away their core patient base with what appears to be an alternative.
