Why Pharmaceutical Marketing Needs Video Content: Part I

Pharmaceutical marketing and pharmaceutical advertising are a tough competitive world filled with cutting edge technology, countless side-effects, and nebulous product names that can easily confuse and overwhelm the consumer.  One of the easiest ways to vaccinate against confusion and give the consumer the right treatment is through online video content.  While everyone loves online videos, whether it is cats playing with yarn or corgis chasing a ball, reading statistics about online video content may be a tedious and tough pill to swallow.  If you want to feel better in the morning about your pharmaceutical marketing, then take a few of these and call us in the morning.

 

64% More likely to buy a product after seeing a video

  • Online videos are the perfect antidote for poor pharmaceutical sales. Users are 64% more likely to buy a product after seeing a video; therefore, your company site should be 300% more likely to have online videos for all of it’s products. While most products purchased online are simple consumer products and not prescription drugs or healthcare products; all consumers are going online to educate themselves about any purchase, online or offline.  Be it a purse, t-shirt, or new blood pressure medication, online video is the key source for consumer education.
