marketing pains? see a specialist.

Health systems, hospitals, clinics and companies in the wellness space are all dealing with new and unique challenges that make running the business of healthcare more difficult than ever. Which in turn is making marketing a real pain in the bu-dget.

From pandemic related workforce shortages to declining appointments and admissions to the rise in less profitable business centers like tele-health, marketing priorities are always changing…which necessitates a more flexible and nimble approach. Yet, while many marketing pains are common, the best treatment plan should be unique to what ails you.

what we do

We have a unique appreciation for the complex relationship people have with their health. Audience insight is fundamental to our ability to unlock behavior change — and ultimately, drive growth for our clients.

In addition to tools such as surveys and focus groups, Motion utilizes ethnographic and innovative research methods to gain unfiltered understanding of issues affecting our client's brands, from a patient's hospital stay to how women utilize technology and social media to select a healthcare provider.

These insights, along with those extracted from large, client-provided data sets inform detailed, KPI-based launches, campaigns and integrated marketing plans.

what we bring

Extensive strategic and creative experience in positioning a healthcare service or technology. We have a proven track record of success working with Fortune 250 clients, mid-size companies and startups.

In a crowded market, selling medical devices, data analytics software and services to health systems and physicians is challenging—typically a long selling cycle. We help our B2B clients find the unique position they can own, create a distinctive brand message and brand identity that will set them apart from competitors.
