DUBLIN, May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “2022 Digital Marketing Survey of Life Scientists” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The voice of 841 scientists on how they want to be marketed online

This report examines some of the most important elements of digital marketing, including search engine optimization, social media, email, mobile, video, webinars, websites, and content marketing. The scientists who responded to this survey described their use of each of these channels, how they use them, and the forms of content they most want to access.
