Welcome to Medidata


What is SamplesFirst?

SamplesFirst is a proprietary direct mail format which provides an effective and cost-efficient way for doctors to request product samples and patient support material.

SamplesFirst cards are sent out to all full-time General Practitioners in New Zealand four times per year - with a maximum of 12 cards per mailing. Requests for samples are then completed and returned by the doctor for subsequent delivery by your representatives, or by courier or post.


What is special about SamplesFirst?

SamplesFirst cards are a cost-effective, efficient, no-hassle means of:

  • Obtaining sales leads
  • Identifying users of your products
  • Supplying information about your products to general practitioners
  • Distributing samples into the marketplace

How does SamplesFirst work?

You design the front of the DL size SamplesFirst card offering your samples and/or information - leaving a space for the digitally printed doctor contact details - and we do the rest!

Medidata offers a design service if required.

For a very reasonable rate, your investment includes:

  • Four color printing
  • Assembly
  • Postage
  • Data entry of responses
  • Summary report of responders (split by territory if required)*
  • Response rates
  • Set of labels if required

* Reports are provided 4-5 weeks after the mailing.

You won't find a more cost-effective advertising opportunity!
