Marketing drugs

I recall reading an article about the marketing side of prescription drugs. How the name, color, and shape of the pills are arrived at from a marketing point of view, specifically tailored to elicit response in the pill takers. Ring any bells?

Savvy Marketers Needed

I am currently building a 'community' website which is like the Yellow Pages with user reviews. For example, the website lists all the Florists, Plumbers, and Massage Therapists in the area, and then allows people to post a review for the particular service. The website is for a community of about 75,000 and it won't be difficult to get the word out about the website. The challenge is getting people to 'generate' the content. How can we incentivize people to write reviews? Any examples of websites that are doing this right? Most importantly, any creative ideas from the savvy marketers out there on how to get people to write reviews and generate our critical content with minimal financial incentive?

How can I use the Internet to promote an interactive film and arts site?

There are a lot of buzzwords being bandied about regarding the 'viral' 'grassroots' ways that 'Internet 2.0' can be used to 'create a groundswell' through 'guerilla marketing'. What? What do these buzzwords actually mean? After getting vague advice like 'use MySpace' by people with marketing degrees who don't use the internet to market anything, I am interested in cutting through the crap by hearing from real people with actual experience in these matters. How can the Internet be used to promote a site with interactive stuff, games and short film... and little-to-no budget for marketing?

How can my new site be more tell-a-friendable?

How can my new site be more tell-a-friendable? I recently launched a personal ads site. When it gets a good link, memberships and traffic take off. But there's no word-of-mouth momentum and as soon as that good link disappears, things quiet back down. This may have a lot to do with the fact that telling your friends about a personal ads site can be like telling them about a new hemorrhoid treatment. What can I do to overcome this? [more inside]

How to I pull off the sales event of the year?

How do I pull off the sales event of the year? I have been put in charge of my company’s fiscal year end sale/open house. The purpose of this event is to generate sales (both immediate and future). We sell specialized machinery to hobbyists and professionals. This will be an opportunity for our local customers to come and see our show room and get great end of the year deals. This will also be marketed to our national customers. They will be able to call in and get the same deal as someone attending our event. We have the opportunity to market to several types: people in our database that have purchased a tool from us in the past, people in our database that have a deposit on a machine, people in our database that have expressed interest in our machinery in the recent and far past. I have several questions that hopefully this knowledgeable group can answer. [more inside]
