  • Interactive engagement – education and services are better understood. Use your Facebook and social media accounts to help educate the public. Your accounts should be used to talk about the clinical research, but also help people understand research. They will find you as part of their community – if you offer something of value.
  • Companies need to establish their initial presence. By building a consistent look and feel, companies can gain awareness and develop their voice.Take time to learn what is currently being discussed in the industry and understand the discussions taking place. Then, participate in a way the community will find relevant. Start discussions, and join ones already in progress. Post pictures, videos, comments, and questions.Become an esteemed contributor by adding value to existing communities. Gain followers virally by becoming friends with others in your industry across multiple channels. Want to add significant and valuable content? Be the expert – blog consistently on topics affecting your company and your industry.Sponsor social media third-party channels. The life sciences industry generates and responds to buzz by sharing stories, which includes heavy blogging, tweeting, and thoughtfully responding to others’ shared stories.Announce new company activities, products/services, and relationships. Constantly innovate, entertain, and be relevant. Monitor your “share of voice” vs. “share of wallet” to achieve long-term positive perception.
