Successful Diabetes Product Launches Balance Digital & Traditional Public Relations Tools
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – January 4, 2012 – Successfully launching a new diabetes product in this digital age still relies heavily on traditional public relations tools, namely press releases, media interviews, health fairs, and educational pamphlets. However, introducing new technologies into a launch plan is an effective way to inform patients and physicians of the new product.
Among the most effective technologies for reaching patients and physicians about a new diabetes product are online advocacy groups, branded web sites, and e-newsletters, according to commercial executives who participated in primary research on "Educating the Marketplace to Support Successful Diabetes Product Launches" conducted by Best Practices, LLC. Podcasts are one of the least effective technologies for informing patients, but achieve some success in reaching physicians.
