Digital Marketing is not only relevant for the success of companies but also for medical practices. This is especially true in the USA. For this reason, Carl Zeiss Meditec planned to support its customers – US medical practices that use ZEISS medical devices – in the field of Digital Marketing. A Marketing Assessment Center was to enable medical practices to

  • objectively measure their marketing performance according to scientific criteria.
  • generate more leads with customized guidelines and task lists.

The technical implementation of the platform was carried out in-house and in collaboration with a ZEISS partner. The experts at SUNZINET provided the concept behind the solution.

Goal: Securing long-term growth

  • By providing the solution, Carl Zeiss Meditec aims to position itself as a valuable digital partner, strengthen customer loyalty and thus secure its long-term growth in the US market.
Approach of the project

The solution: Creation of a Marketing Assessment Center

In order to achieve these goals, a Marketing Assessment Center was to be created:

  • According to our concept, customers would first use the digital platform to complete an extensive list of questions. These record and evaluate the status quo of their Digital Marketing performance on the basis of strict scientific principles.
  • Depending on the results, they would automatically receive an individual training plan as well as documents they can use to improve their Digital Marketing performance.

Our work: Scientific approach for the best results

  • Performance Measurement in nine fields
    Our team created the complete questionnaire, which ZEISS customers can use to measure their marketing maturity objectively and validly. This comprises 115 questions and captures the strengths, weaknesses and needs of medical practices in nine areas, from website to paid social to marketing automation. The quality of the questions was checked by using user acceptance tests and thinking-aloud test sessions.
  • Maturity Score_EN

    Based on the answers given, a maturity score is calculated. This objectively indicates the maturity level of the medical practice in the area of Digital Marketing. SUNZINET developed the scoring logic behind it as well as the distribution logic according to which ZEISS customers receive a customized training plan.

  • Creation of task lists & guidelines
    Our experts were also responsible for creating the documents, guidelines and task lists. These include extensive articles on relevant Digital Marketing fields and cover various performance levels. An AI-based process ensured that the content creation was aligned with defined usability standards.

Some project highlights:

  • The solution is scalable and suitable for every performance level, from beginner to advanced.
  • A stimulating concept makes it fun and motivates you to improve your performance.
