What have you used in the past as calls-to-action? – Reduced cost screenings – Events – Promotional items – Unique Landing Pages (ULPs) We’ve already established that the call-to-action isn’t as important as we used to think… it’s how they use your hospital’s services. So make it easier!
Leverage Your Existing Work Successful CRM campaigns can benefit from multiple, integrated components that leverage existing marketing efforts. – Consumer magazine – Physician directory – Web content
Call-to-action Example #1 Service Line Appointment Request

Let your call-to-action be a brand statement.
