The pharmaceutical market is dominated by global corporations, but smaller pharmaceutical companies can also get online exposure and media coverage with a press release campaign as the big players do.

Do you want to market pharmaceutical products or services? Do you know how you can get noticed and increase your chances of getting media coverage?

Firstly, if you want to market, promote, or improve your pharmaceutical business you need a feasible & effective marketing plan.

Historical marketing approaches that are aimed at creating and pushing demand by stimulating medical prescriptions no longer produce the desired results. There is a certain need of re-engineering the marketing mix: creating and implementing a strategy in which the desire for information and knowledge incites action on behalf of the patients and healthcare professionals.

Companies should refocus their marketing message from doctors and sales to patient satisfaction.

What To Write In Your Press Release And How To Structure Your Content?

Here are some topics that you can cover as a pharmaceutical company.

You can share your experience and information about the release of a new report on the prospects for market development for the year. Your company can announce the release of a new drug or treatment or the results of a conducted research.

You can provide your expert opinion and an official review of recent changes in the institutional framework or comment on recent policies and regulations in the pharmaceutical sector by which your business has been affected.

If you already have an idea of what your press release will be about, here’s just a quick list of things that you need to include so that your press release has a better chance of being approved by press release distribution services for distribution and by media outlets for publishing.

Your Press Release should include the following information:

  • Catchy headline
  • Details about the pharmaceutical company
    • name
    • service/products
  • Details about your story
    • who are the involved parties
    • what happened
    • why and when
    • what’s the objective and expected results
  • Release date
  • Quote from an owner, partner, manager, patient, or employees (recommended)
  • Relevant image, company logo (recommended)
  • Business website URL
  • Dateline
  • Boilerplate with infomation about the company ( contact person, location, phone number)


The effectiveness of a marketing team can be greatly improved by a professional press release promotional campaign that clearly explains the benefits of a product or service by talking about the satisfaction from the prescription of a specific (drug) therapy.

If your press release does not convey this information and doesn’t make the reader understand what your product does and why it’s so remarkable, you haven’t done your job as a storyteller and marketer.
