Scientific web design and content creation requires experienced insight and a super creative team.
Like most places online, the scientific online space is busy. Digital transformation across the life sciences sector has perhaps been slower than other sectors.
The need for 'rich media' – content created in a variety of formats – will set you apart, tell your story and present you as leading in this area.
We understand that creating the best creative content for a scientific website needs a unique range of skills and an understanding of your sector. We have those skills, the experience that gives us a head start with your project.
This sector is bombarded with technical terms, industry jargon, complex concepts and equations. It can be refreshing to find information presented in a different way, something entertaining and easy to digest. A contrast to the usual tone, the usual style.
Plus if you are seeking investment, they need to know what you are doing in a way that they can understand.
Buyers take the time to research and discover the details first, before making a buying decision
The buying process has changed. The 'why' is becoming more important than the 'how. As well as the focus on innovative ways to present what you do online. Explaining what you know clearly and compellingly takes a new process that you may not be familiar with. Buyers in all industries now begin with educating themselves before making a buying decision. With greater choice, as well as, greater distraction.
When buyers get in touch with you they have most likely made up their mind already, having gone through their own discovery and research journey. They have built up trust in your brand and have researched the information relevant to their problem. If you are not talking to them during this journey they won't find you.
So how do you reach them during this discovery stage?
How do you reach the scientific community, tell them what you do and why they need to; buy from you, invest in you or partner with you?
Everyone is online. Including the scientific community. They love to consume content, just like everyone else. Many science communities consist of very specialised and unique audiences, specific to their sector, specialism or industry association. You need to find them and start a conversation. Speaking to each of the different audiences in a way that fits with them, can be challenging.
You need stunning content but you are struggling for resources and need a process to promote it?
Your biggest obstacles to creating absolutely the best creative content for your science sector website are likely to be; lack of resources to create that content, time to create the content together with a fast and efficient publishing process. Many life science, biotech, healthcare and scientific companies use surprisingly little content for their marketing. A last-minute powerpoint presentation, a hurried conference brochure, a hastily briefed exhibition stand. Does this sound familiar? It's not ideal.
You know you need to do more, however, how do you define your audience and figure out how to create the content that will appeal to them at the early stages of their journey to buying, partnering or investing as well as the later stages.
How can you create the right content that positions you as thought leaders in your field?
