Merry Christmas. Feliz Navidad. Happy Hanukkah.
If you've got some vacation time this week, I think you should give some serious thought to your YouTube plans for 2009.
NOVARTIS used YouTube for an Excedrin contest.
As of 3rd quarter 2008, NOVARTIS had, like, 31 billion dollars in sales.
So, YOU could have the same exposure as a 31 billion dollar pharmaceutical GIANT?!?!?!?
What are you waiting for?
Free global advertising - it's a pretty big marketing gift!
If you YouTube scares you, you need a Social Marketing Consultant. So, email you know who..
If there's someone you think needs to subscribe, go ahead and
|YouTube is for everyone.
"Highly regulated pharma companies have been reluctant to embrace such
user-generated efforts because of their unpredictable nature, said Neha
Parekh, head of healthcare marketing at Google. But the Excedrin
contest shows that even highly regulated companies can safely engage
the YouTube audience.
blah, blah, blah
Parekh said there is evidence that the YouTube community is actively
looking for more interaction with healthcare companies, and that those
who stay away may be missing an opportunity.
'If you just search around YouTube, you see a lot of videos with people
giving medical advice or talking about how they take their medication,'
she said. 'People don't get a lot of time with their doctors these
days, so consumers are very interested in watching long-form health
videos" to fill that gap.'
I am going to repeat that - Consumers are very interested in watching long-form health videos -
and you can give them stuff to watch without spending a lot, if any!, money. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!Read the whole thing if you want
but the important stuff is above.
