Al Topin, Strategic Consultant for HCB Health Chicago, offers a set of guidelines for applying common sense and courage to find marketing solutions without compromise in his recent article for PharmExec.com.

Topin recommends that marketers with short-term goals (e.g., rushing to market) shift to a mindset of realistic, long-term success. In addition, he emphasizes the importance of keeping focused tactics without conforming to the directions other brands are taking.
“In the chaos of developing a launch, keeping things simple, focused and aligned is hard work.” Topin writes. “It takes discipline and courage to defend against the other side of the polarized spectrum that constantly adds more details and multiple directions.”
