Life Science Content Marketing
Choosing the right type of content is the first essential step to a successful marketing program. Knowing your audience and what stage of the sales funnel they are likely to be at is vital.
Only 3% of your market will be actively buying at any given time.
Are you aiming to raise brand awareness about a life science product and educate the market on potential applications of a technique? Or are you looking to provide in-depth product information for decision-makers?
Once you know your goals, choosing the right type of content becomes more straightforward, from interviews to white papers. Here are some case studies from life science companies working with AZoNetwork that achieved specific goals through their life science digital marketing.
Thought Leadership interview
Raising awareness of digital pathology applications through amyloid plaques in the brain.
Huron Digital Pathology worked with AZoNetwork to produce a featured interview with leading researcher Dr. Paul Alan Cox to raise awareness of the challenges of manual counts, including subjectivity, and the advantages of digital pathology.
The feature gave an external perspective on the applications of Huron’s TissueScope LE.
Educating the market on a novel application of a preclinical optical imaging system
Bruker BioSpin worked with AZoNetwork to produce an
informative article on a new study by researchers investigating the physical role of type IV pili in the swarming of opportunistic pathogen P. aeruginosa.
The research required an effective imaging system, thereby allowing the education of the market on Bruker’s In-Vivo Xtreme.
Providing in-depth product information
INTEGRA Biosciences worked with AZoNetwork to
produce profiles that inform potential buyers not only about the product itself but also the thoughts of their customers.
Utilizing a combination of descriptive specifications, high-quality images, videos, and customer quotations, INTEGRA Biosciences has given prospective customers all the information they need to make a buying decision and request a quote through AZoNetwork’s calls to action.
Content Distribution for Life Science Companies
It is said, ‘if content is king, distribution is queen’, which is undoubtedly the case in life science marketing. Not only do you need to create the right content, but you also need to make sure it reaches the right people, in the right space, at the right time.
Locating who the right people are and where they are can be difficult. Our post on

Targeting your audience
Customized emails and targeted newsletters are a great way to inform a specific audience about an exciting announcement, webinar, or event.
Global laboratory science conference, Pittcon, worked with AZoNetwork to produce and distribute several
targeted customized emails to highlight the upcoming talks and themes of the conference to the right people at the right time. Email marketing to our existing audiences is a great way to reach the life science industry and build trust.
Amplifying your reach
Social media is a great place to expand the reach of your content. The most appropriate channel for you will vary depending on your specific field and objective and the type of content you produce.
A piece of content may be more relevant to your Twitter audience than LinkedIn. Regularly keeping up to date with social media analytics will give insights into your social media audiences.
Remember not just to post your updates on your own social media pages but also on relevant groups within LinkedIn and, if you have access, share with influencers.
