Why Pharmaceutical Marketing Needs Video Content: Part II

Online video is to pharmaceutical marketing as Viagra is to relationships: exciting and engaging, with long lasting, fulfilling and beneficial side effects. If you don’t want your pharmaceutical marketing campaign to fall flaccid, you have to pump it up with unique online video content. Online video is sure to deliver inflated results that will increase your campaigns libido. Read on to learn why your pharmaceutical marketing campaign needs video content.

16 minutes and 49 seconds – Average time a consumer spends watching online ads each month

  • According to comScore, the average user spends 16 minutes and 49 seconds watching online video ads every month. These are advertising videos, not entertainment videos! Patients spend less time with the doctor during a normal office visit!  Video content is the perfect regimen to boost sales, inform your sales reps, and educate doctors with concise and entertaining information.  Be sure that your pharmaceutical product or medical device has a proper video for everyone to see.

80 percent of consumers say a video showing how a product or service works is important when learning about the company

  • As important as CPR class and malpractice insurance, a how-to video is critical for your patients and doctors.  Pharmaceutical advertising videos are great, but 80% of consumers want to see how the product works.   This staggering statistic means that you need to have a how-to online video stat! At Concepts Video, we use cutting edge animation technology to show how a new prescription drug or hip replacement works inside the body.  In health care, consumers and doctors are inundated with new complex products that can easily confuse. By using animation in videos, videos allow the patient and doctors to easily understand how new products work inside the body – See link here.

About half of customers say that ‘about the company’ videos are the most helpful when purchasing a product/service

  • Not only do consumers want to learn about your product they also want to know about the company to make sure they aren’t receiving quackery.  People are interested in the company’s values and beliefs as much as they are interested in the product.  A personal, anecdotal company video is an essential  prescription for all healthcare websites.

Get your Yearly Check-Up

  • Unlike wine, videos don’t get better with age, be sure to refresh your company video every year or two to stay abreast of cutting-edge technology and current events. Customers also prefer a company that benefits the community.  This is where great social media videos are essential to share up to date activities that are going on inside your company.   

The takeaway from all of this: If you’re not using online video as part of your pharma marketing campaign then you’re missing a massive opportunity.  While the number of people watching online videos is staggering, it’s more important to note how they interact with your videos.  Online videos drive users to company websites which in turn drives sales and builds a customer for life.  At Concepts Video we have an award winning history with 30+ years in video production.  Some of our clients are venerable brands like  National Geographic,  Timex, and Direct TV.  At Concepts Video and we specialize in:

MUSE NYC 2016 Shines as an Evening of Healthcare Video and Innovation

MUSE, curated by Klick Health, is an inspirational gathering where healthcare thought leaders, healthcare video artists, and technological innovators happily collide through presentation and conversation.  The most recent MUSE NYC 2016 occurred on March 31st at Center548. The lineup of speakers was superb:  Leerom Segal, Klick Health CEO, Ron Fournier, political columnist, Louie Schwartzberg, award-winning filmmaker, Claire Wineland, Seventeen Magazine’s “Power Teen,” Dr. John Brownstein, professor and health innovator, Susan Bennett, original voice of Apple’s Siri, Professor Marc Edwards, Flint Michigan warrior, Dan White, celebrity magician, and Arianna Huffington.

If your focus includes compelling visual storytelling, Louie Schwartzberg’s jaw-dropping time-lapse cinematography particularly resonated.  Schwartzberg reflected on our collective human need for absorbing the visuals of unfiltered nature.  Screening pure wildlife videos can be healing, and there is an opportunity for such videos to be broadcast much more widely throughout many hospitals, medical offices and other healthcare venues.

Here’s a sampling of Louie’s work:

Dr. John Brownstein

Another highlight of MUSE NYC 2016 can be attributed to the presentation of Harvard Medical School Professor, Boston Children’s Hospital Chief Innovation Officer, and Uber Healthcare advisor, John Brownstein, PhD.  “3.6 million patients across the US miss at least one appointment due to lack of access to transportation,” Brownstein cited, as he introduced Circulation, a new vision for non-emergency transportation.

Arianna Huffington

MUSE NYC 2016 densely packed in illuminating conversations on so many topics; this is only a small sampling.  Keynote speaker Arianna Huffington addressed the all-importance of a good night’s sleep.  A very interesting point that she brought up is that 75% of health is tied to lifestyle choices, only 25% to genetics. Obviously, there are many opportunities to teach people how to be healthier. Later, when Arianna exclaimed, “A good day starts the night before by getting enough sleep,” a majority of MUSE attendees wondered if they should run home for healing slumber, or temporarily disregard that wisdom and stay for the sounds of DJ Skratch Bastid.
