  • Dedicated workspaces for class participants during compounding training courses, including classroom and lab areas
  • Providing masks to every individual
  • Providing hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes to all visitors, class participants and staff at facility entrance, in bathrooms, breakroom, training room, and labs
  • Offices, bathrooms, breakroom, and lab are cleaned and disinfected daily

LEARN MORe

This live and/or web-based course will offer a practical look at marketing and sales strategies to grow and expand the independent compounding pharmacy, both routinely and in response to challenges.

Marketers, pharmacists, and technicians will participate in an interactive course, including lecture, hands-on activities, and roundtable discussions. Attendees will learn the roles that social media, creative collateral, and branding play in successful growth. From creating a personalized marketing “toolbox,” to getting past the gatekeeper, to effective provider communication (even on Zoom!) this course will equip attendees to grow their current compounding business and to measure success.

With Keri’s more than two decades of experience in compounding and marketing, she will lead this fun, interactive course to prepare the attendee for the “real world” of provider and patient education. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to gain new, creative tactics to enhance your marketing efforts, while networking with your marketing peers! 

Our low instructor/participant ratio allows for individual attention and interaction. The program is structured to demonstrate skills that can be immediately implemented by participants.
