While social media marketing is an ongoing process, the most critical phase in social media marketing is the campaign launch. It is a one-time step that if done correctly can save you a lot in to advertise the brand. Launching a campaign for consumer healthcare products involves planning for proper timing, building content strategy, choosing the tone of voice, putting the right tactics, agreeing on the output and outcome, etc. Successful digital marketing launches have helped those products reach the right people like patients and healthcare professionals by advertising those products across several platforms.
What Are Consumer Healthcare Products?
Consumer healthcare products that customers can buy without the need for a prescription from a health care practitioner. Prescription drugs, however, require the oversight of a health care practitioner.
Examples of consumer health care products are OTC medications in areas such as pain relief, oral health, skin health, digestive health, nutritional supplements, and other self-care products.
