    For over a decade, we've been advising our clients and colleagues to "take a walk in the shoes of your customer" - to understand and empathize with the plight of patients and caregivers, so you can "get into their skin" and know how best to communicate with them.

  • When The Social World Meets Up With The Real World  in Marketing: Health on 12/04/2015

    Have you ever been to a meet-up? Well, the other night we hosted one to celebrate and honor caregivers during National Family Caregivers Month. We wanted to give those who had been active on our Caregivers Speak Up website and Facebook page an opportunity to share their experiences face-to-face. But we also wanted to see how the social world we helped create would converge with the real world, and what difference it might make to caregivers.

  • What Makes Content Shareable? in Marketing: Health on 11/06/2015

    Shareable content is a powerful activator and amplifier of your brand engagement. A thoughtful approach to utilizing content, not just driving reach and frequency of messages, drives brand engagement in a way that direct selling simply cannot.

  • Why Caregivers Flock To Facebook in Marketing: Health on 09/04/2015

    We recently started a new experience website for caregivers, and got exactly what we'd hoped for in terms of response. It was the where of that response that came as a bit of a surprise.

  • Caregivers Finally Get To Speak Up in Marketing: Health on 07/02/2015

    When someone is diagnosed with any type of disease, life changes immediately for the patient, and for the loved one who inevitably assumes the role of caregiver. He or she quickly transforms from being a lover, best friend, and companion to being a living life-support system with a PhD in care.

  • Relationships Need To Adapt, Too in Marketing: Health on 06/05/2015

    We live in a multifaceted and complex time for healthcare. It seems like more people are getting ill with chronic and terminal conditions, and there are more challenges to getting the proper care. So the need for creating healthcare communications and experiences that respond to these challenges has gotten more complicated as well.

  • Driving Disease Awareness, One Month At A Time in Marketing: Health on 02/24/2015

    It's pretty much impossible to count how many people in the world are afflicted with disease; there are simply too many diseases and too many people to count. And if you count the loved ones of those with diseases, then it's safe to say that virtually everyone is affected by disease.

  • Digital Tools Make Caregiving Easier (But It's Still Not Easy) in Marketing: Health on 01/28/2015

    Nearly 1 in 4 American adults supports loved ones, friends, or others as caregivers. They help. They cope. They talk to doctors. They research diseases. And they need support even as they give it, because caregivers often put their own needs on the back burner while caring for someone else.

  • Healthy Observations by Prodeep Bose and Elizabeth Elfenbein (Marketing: Health on 02/18/2011)

    Good question Ed. Maybe the way to think about mentoring on a universal level is, to create educational communications that are more relevant, digestible and to my above point, bite-size. I agree with your comment that people need hand-holding, the problem is people are so busy and "how" and "when" can we insert yet another thing into their daily lives. Mentoring might come in the form of portable tools that all consumers at various ages can leverage to help them live healthier.
