Our expertise in product marketing spans a wide range of industries, including technology, retail, food, travel and entertainment. We know that increased sales doesn’t come from a short-lived ad campaign or media stunt, but instead stems from giving customers a deep experience with brands and products over time. Everything that we do is based in research about our customers –- how they think, what they like, where they shop. We use this knowledge to help us raise awareness about our clients’ products, educate customers about product value and brand promise, and develop integrated campaigns that connect customers with the product and brand in meaningful ways. We can help you lead potential customers down the path towards purchase. We can also work with you to identify your greatest assets - your brand fans - and develop programs to help hold on to them to increase word of mouth and repeat purchases.

Ogilvy PR has a deep history based in comprehensive brand building, and that heritage continues to rise to the surface today in all the work we do. Our 360° Brand Stewardship expertise is a cross-practice discipline activated in order to launch, redefine, strengthen and build brands. Led by Steve Dahllof, the team is made up of ambassadors from each of the agency’s practice areas who form a global network of branding specialists. Our team takes a customized, research-based approach to activating influencers on behalf of brands, and everything starts with research – to understand what our customers, employees, stakeholders and analysts are saying about our clients, their competitors and industry. For LensCrafters, our initial research showed that that most people considered eyewear a functional necessity, not a fashion accessory, and only remembered LensCrafters from their ad slogans of the late 90’s. To help change perceptions about eyewear and revitalize the brand, our team worked with fashion industry influencers to reach major media and fashion-forward consumers. We were able to use multiple channels to transform the brand into that of a style-maker and a go-to for the media and consumers alike.

Yes. Feinstein Kean Healthcare is the premier strategy and communications consulting firm for the life sciences and healthcare, grounded in an understanding of the science and technologies that drive innovation and transformational change in the medical and health care fields. We pioneered the use of science-based communication to advance the commercial and institutional interests of our clients. Our roots trace back to the emergence of the biotechnology sector more than 20 years ago, when the story behind emerging companies truly was the science. We have provided valued counsel and services to hundreds of biotech companies, large pharmaceutical companies, diagnostic companies, academic medical centers, healthcare providers, service organizations, government agencies and advocacy groups. Today, we apply a similarly deep understanding of the science across a range of disruptive technologies in the life sciences and healthcare, and are an established leader in areas like molecular medicine, neurotechnology, nanotechnology, and personal genomics, as well as in pharmaceutical and biopharma product communication. We’re viewed as an integral part of the sectors we serve, nurturing long-standing relationships with opinion leaders, influential media, industry associations, advocacy groups and the financial community. We have on staff PhDs and former biomedical researchers -- as well as other experienced professional communicators with corporate, marketing, public health, governmental, media, legal, advocacy and clinical backgrounds -- who help to interpret the science and its relevance to a variety of critical audiences. We operate at the intersection where innovative life science and health care research, technologies and ideas are converging to dramatically affect product development, business models, market development, patient care, public health, public opinion, policy and regulatory systems. At that intersection, we provide a novel mix of strategy consulting and communications services. Visit the FKHealth website.
