Prescription Bag Advertising reaches the consumers with their minds in healthcare

Pharmacy Bag Advertisement is an outstanding tactic to reach consumers with their minds in healthcare. The advertisement is printed on pharmacy bags and distributed to the stores the advertiser selected. The consumer literally touches the ad and eventually bring it to their home. Pharmacy Bags Advertising creates additional exposure to other viewers since sometimes the consumers place the bags on their table at home. Advertisers use prescription bags or pharmacy bags as since it delivers the message in the hand of consumers.
In order to compare the costs of bag advertisement, we will consider the traditional OOH vehicle as a billboard.  On the top, most billboard companies require advertisers to close long-term contracts. If your campaign strategy requires flexibility and multiple messages delivered at specific times, billboards are not the right media. Many commuters are subjected to dozens of billboards each day with a limited attention span. Billboards become easy to be ignored and the short exposure limits the recall rate of the audience.
For the same costs, you can advertise on pharmacy bags in 40 different venues for 1 month.

Pharmacy Bag Advertisement connects with the audience

The use of mobile OOH methods will most likely experience more decline in the coming months, given the fact when the economy re-opens, people will still be cautious and stay more at home. Mobile advertising using trucks, buses and others will be fast replaced by sensitive advertising. The impact of COVID-19 has kept normally mobile citizens inside their homes. Hence, the best ways to reach your audience and maintain brand visibility will be to take your products and services to them indoors, as it will be clearly unprofitable to place adverts on advertising vehicles that no one is seeing.


As the drastic economic impact of coronavirus continues to spill, brands and agencies are forced to re-evaluate the current advertising methods they are using. Recently, the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) surveyed nearly 400 media buyers and brands. The results were surprising: 74% think the coronavirus pandemic will have a larger impact on their advertising spend than the 2008 financial crisis. According to the President of Interactive Advertising Bureau, David Cohen, “Typically marketers will press pause for a moment, take a breath, assess the situation, replay and reevaluate.”
The traditional out-of-home advertising is expected to be largely impacted. The estimated ad spend declined 51% in March and April and another decline of 41% is expected in June 2020. Fewer people are outside reducing the appeal and effectiveness of billboards and DOOH. Advertising in malls, at bus stops, and bus shelter advertising are fast becoming replaced by in-home advertising. The impact of COVID-19 has kept the consumers inside their homes. Hence, the best ways to reach the audience will be to take your advertising message to them indoors.
