In Focus: Advertising & Promotion

Posted 01 May 2008

All industries that sell goods need to be able to educate potential customers about their products' value. Society expects manufacturers of automobiles, clothing and cleaning products to tout the attributes of their brands. The reaction to drug and medical device promotion is quite different, however.
