Rapid Fire Challenge

Maximizing Distribution of Patient Educational Materials

The Challenge

Caring Ambassadors is a nonprofit that works to improve the lives of patients and communities by empowering and educating them to be advocates for their own health. Their Lung Cancer Program has published 3 books dedicated to helping patients gain the knowledge and understanding they need to navigate their treatment and become an ambassador for their own health. The books are highly accredited and written by experts in the field, and they even offer free digital copies which patients can easily download. Caring Ambassadors has a grant to distribute 250 free hard copies to patients, caregivers, oncology nurses, patient navigators, and social workers. However, while they have succeeded in bringing a wide audience to their website where they can request a hard copy free of charge or download the books, they are struggling to convert those views into orders/downloads. Caring Ambassadors is therefore looking for strategic advice on how to hone their messaging and marketing strategies to reach more of their target audience and convert more views into orders/downloads.

Key Questions

1. What is the best way to target lung cancer patients/caregivers on social media? Is one platform more effective than the others?

2. Do you have any ideas or suggestions to improve campaign branding and messaging? (See Marketing Efforts to-date below)

3. Does providing free copies diminish the value?
