We are happy to supply these value-added services at NO EXTRA CHARGE as part of your email campaign:
Hosting your email message as a Web page on the Pharma Marketing Network site with widgets that link to this page throughout our Web properties, including Pharma Marketing Blog and Pharma Marketing Forum. This provides exposure to thousands of additional qualified pharma marketing professionals.
NEW! Each email ad includes a simultaneous Tweet made by @Pharmaguy to over 16,000 Twitter followers (as of October, 2013; see a profile of @pharmaguy's followers here)! This tweet includes the subject line of the email ad plus a link to the Web page version of the ad. See here to learn more about the @Pharmaguy Twitter account and other PMN social media promotion options.
NEW! Email ads with a prominent graphical element may also be "pinned" to the PMN Advertiser Pinterest Board (here).
Further personalizing your message to Pharma Marketing News subscribers by including mention of them within the body of your message or subject line. For example, if a discount is offered, we make it seem as if this discount is specifically for PMN subscribers even if it applies to everybody.
Technical editing of your HTML and text copy. For example, special characters like curly quotes, em dashes, bullets, etc. may not display correctly in all browsers. In that case, we replace these with the appropriate characters. We also review and make corrections to links to graphics and Web pages in your HTML code to ensure that they work properly.
Email Statistics Report: For each email ad we send on your behalf, you receive a Campaign Summary Report that includes the number of emails sent, bounce rate, opens, total clicks, forwards, and a detailed list of click statistics showing you how many times each link in your email message was clicked by a unique recipient.
Testing. Prior to sending your e-mail to all Pharma Marketing News subscribers, a test is sent to you and a list of your colleagues you designate for their review. Only when you have finally approved the e-mail content, links, and subject line is it scheduled for distribution.
Scheduling. We schedule your e-mail blast well in advance so that you can pick the date and time of day that suits your needs the best.
Receive Your Ad. There is no need for you to be on our subscription list to receive the e-mail. We put you and up to 4 of your colleagues whom you designate in the distribution list for the actual email blast so you can see what our subscribers see, when they see it.
