PM360's Innovators 2015: Services
MerkleONE was included in PM360's picks for the most innovative services of 2015, which includes compelling offerings that help the industry tackle new challenges. Success in today’s pharma marketing environment requires a people over product approach—in other words, “people-based marketing.” But achieving this often requires marketers to work within a complicated web of platforms, vendors, databases and agencies—all of which are in constant flux. Integrating all of these components is one of the largest challenges facing health marketers—and the inspiration behind MerkleONE, an all-in-one digital marketing solution suite for pharmaceutical marketers.

Merkle RKG has been honored with a US Search Award for Best Use of PR in a Search Campaign for its work with JetBlue’s Fare Options initiative.
