Yes, Pharma gets Social Media.

The first link here asks the question – “Does Pharma Get Social Media?”  and the second link explains the difficulties.   This summer I did a marketing internship at Sanofi Pharmaceuticals.   The second link is about how sanofi has helped diabetics by using Facebook and Twitter.  But there are lots of issues pharma has to deal with in this space – people post things like – my doc told me to take my med every day but I only take a couple of times a week – or worse, someone says they had a serious side effect- or someone encourages people to try a drug for an indication that isn’t approved.   These are all big issues and the industry has to be very careful about engaging in two-way conversations because whatever they do has to be acceptable to FDA.   Sanofi has found a way to walk the balance.

    Marketing plays an important role in pharma industry. These days pharma companies are spending aggressively on marketing to increase their sales and market share. Rather than spending on research , lot of money is being spend on advertisements.

    There are certain rules in marketing which companies have to follow. They can only market non prescribed medicines like analgesic medicines for reducing pain. Laws related to Pharma Marketing states that companies cannot give special benefits to medical professionals to promote their products.

    Doctors are they key component for sales. They are the one who prescribes the medicines and thus leads to sales. Marketing of pharma products is regulated by Food and Drug administration of that country.
