Clinical Trial Advertisers: Take Note of These Digital Trends

By BBK Worldwide on Tue, Jun 5, 2018 | 3 min read

The way people consume media is changing. With a projected 237.6 million estimated smartphone users by the end of 2018 in the United States alone (an increase of 13.3 million users from last year), the way people are accessing information is increasingly going mobile. Additionally, the Pew Research Center suggests that 64 percent of Americans between the ages 50 to 64 are using social media, preferring mediums like Facebook and YouTube. While the clinical trial industry is known to be slow in adopting newer technologies, the implications of these observed trends for patient recruitment speak for themselves. To get a closer look at the impact of digital media on clinical trial advertising, we spoke with our Director of Media and Research Sarah Mandracchia for her insights on some of the tactics and strategies that are shaping direct-to-consumer outreach in 2018.

By BBK on Thu, Nov 30, 2017 | 2 min read

When patients find themselves interacting with information about their health and well-being, it is the responsibility of healthcare professionals to ensure that these interactions are as meaningful and productive as they can be.

In an age where patients have more choice about treatment options (just think about how the treatment guidelines have evolved for multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis in the last 10 years for example,) and more clinical trials are being conducted by fewer investigators, there has been a constant upward pressure on competition for clinical trial patients, even as sponsors and third party recruitment companies becomes more innovative and proactive in their approaches to marketing their trials.

Buy a Baker’s Dozen

By Joan F. Bachenheimer on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 | 4 min read

It’s clear that the clinical team for each study is tasked with creating and managing an individual study budget. The problem is one-off study purchases do not accrue the benefits of volume discounting. Of course, there are numerous and complicated financial arrangements sponsors make with service providers to create optimal rates for clinical trial support – but what about the simple construct of, “buy one shirt, get another for free?”
