When you use lead magnets, you obviously do this with a purpose. The goal is often to generate new business. Contact details are collected and sales can follow up on leads.

Leads are first ‘marketing qualified’. This means that the lead is interested in the topic and might be interested in related ones. These leads therefore have to be cultivated to make them sales qualified.

Twitter is characterized as a short, concise and fast channel, while it is very common on LinkedIn to share extensive content. Twitter differs from other channels because of its real-time character. When something happens in the world, a lot of people check Twitter first, before other media. Twitter is therefore a perfect medium for companies to respond to current events or to bring out company news, for example.

Healthcare professionals (HCPs) are an important target group for many companies in Life Sciences & Health. A research by Veeva shows that 70% of HCPs are digital natives and collect information online. For example, they use LinkedIn to profile themselves, network and to take subject-specific information. For companies that want to reach HCPs, a business page on LinkedIn offers many options and functionalities to give the organization a face. In addition to sharing small updates with text or images, it is possible to share videos or long articles. By sharing links, the target group is only one click away from, for example, a webinar or whitepaper on your website. Advertising makes it possible to generate a large reach in the short term.
