A life like no other

Plan carefully before marketing to the people living and working through the complexity, controversy, and dynamics of healthcare.

About Us

Discover your voice in healthcare

Dot Roar is a marketing communications firm helping healthcare companies better-connect with clinicians and institutional administrators. Even as our clients introduce new drugs and devices that revolutionize patient care, a more thoughtful marketing approach is still required. Healthcare professionals' attention spans are shrinking as their challenges increase. We help our clients elevate their voice beyond traditional sales communications with more empathetic, customer-centric narratives; so, their customer relationships grow stronger and their products and services have more meaning.

Think of us as your thought partner

We service director-level executives looking for an extension of their team to work through the roadblocks that stymie business growth. Our team will immerse in your business and provide a fresh and informed perspective for your organization.

We recognize you’re helping people

We’re passionate about your success because you're impacting lives. So, you’ll get the undivided attention of strategic, senior-level healthcare advocates. No product is too niche, or too clinical, or too regulated that it doesn’t deserve breakthrough, innovative ideas.

No two clients are alike

You probably think your problem is really unique, and you’re probably right. That’s why we maintain staffing flexibility so we can form teams best-suited for your business. A one-size-fits-all team and process isn’t the roadmap to solving your challenges.

The skillset and experience to solve a wide range of challenges

Dot Roar is ready to help your organization in many ways. Healthcare marketing is more than copy and campaigns — it’s an overarching communications approach for your company. It comes to life when silos in your organization are unified by one mission, or when sales teams learn to listen as much as they tell, or when you improve day-to-day customer experiences.  

We’ve helped clients reinvent their corporate value proposition, so they have a new and inspiring brand voice. We’ve guided clients through the 2021-22 supply chain crisis with a communication strategy that helped them manage dissatisfied customers with grace. We blew up a complex and confusing service offering and put it back together as a simple customer-centric story that communicated real value.

Successful field sales initiatives are crucial to the success of our clients. We have experience in getting to know how sales organizations like yours function— including diagnosing their strengths and weaknesses. Then we help devise tools that better-enable the field to pull through product and corporate marketing campaigns.

The foundation of our success is truly understanding your customers and prospects. Relying and building upon our experience engaging with clinicians and administrators, we dig for key buyer and influencer insights that we can use to create customer-centric narratives that connect and change behavior.
