We liked the clever use of video in a post-SHSMD event follow-up. It's an idea that can be adapted to many healthcare, hospital and medical marketing and advertising situations. A link to the video follows, but here's a bit of background for context.
The company, eVariant, demonstrated their CRM and marketing analytics product at last month's SHSMD (Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development) conference. Attendees, who stopped by their booth, could enter a drawing for an iPad.
After the event, everyone who entered received the following email and link to a video of the drawing. The email was also another opportunity to mention the product, eVariant's next show/event, and the launch of their new product website.
And who's not going to watch to see if they were the winner? Nicely done, eVariant.
Here's the message text and link. (Disclosure: We were not the winner.)
Thanks for visiting our booth at SHSMD Connections in Chicago. The turnout was tremendous -- we received 266 entries. So, did you win our drawing for an Apple iPad? Click here and find out! (And enjoy our spoof on those lottery-drawing TV spots and see exactly how the winner was selected.)

We will be attending the 2010 Hospital & Physician Relations Summit later this month and exhibiting at the 14th Annual Healthcare Internet Conference in November. We hope to see you at one or both of these events or again sometime next year.
PS - Look for another opportunity to win an Apple iPad at the 14th Annual Greystone Healthcare Internet Conference in Las Vegas. Not attending the conference? You can still enter for a chance to win an Apple iPad on the "go-live" day of our new Web site.
