A potential customer recently asked me whether we could share best practices around delivering digital educational services that customers genuinely need rather than pushing brand focused communications.
Best practice is a tough question to answer, but we certainly have learnings that we think should be applied. Here are 10 to consider:
- Base content on customer insights from those at the core of the industry and not just from KOLs.
- Pitch education at the junior to middle weight level as a considerable amount of clinical practice is delivered by these HCP groups.
- Include multispecialty content and faculty (specialist and general practice) to see the same challenge from interrelated viewpoints.
- Include international and local faculty to get a good balance of perspectives.
- Use engaging case-based approaches to put the patient at the centre of the education.
- Integrate on-demand and live educational elements and provide opportunity for direct involvement and engagement with others and experts.
- Make the education relevant and applicable to the local situation and take a multilingual approach.
- Provide downloads for local teaching or educational networking.
- Survey the audience to find out what they thought of the digital activity and what they would like to see and when. Examine and learn from these insights.
- Keep it short and simple, as being too long and overcomplicated blurs the focus. At the end of the day, it’s all about the content.
