Supplement Companies – Don’t Miss the Marketing Opportunity That the New Year Brings!

With the start of the new year many people are devoted to making some healthy lifestyle changes and most want to see immediate results.

That’s where YOU come in.

You have developed a supplement formulation or formulations that you believe will really help people achieve their health goals and will be a game changer for your supplement business and will blow your sales through the roof. However, you have hesitated to put your product on the market.

No doubt, you are concerned that your big brother, the FDA, who is constantly looking over your shoulder to make sure the health claims you make about your supplement are FDA compliant, will shut you down before you get a running start.

This definitely is a valid concern, because if they deem your supplement marketing to be non-compliant with their guidelines, they can issue you a warning letter stating that  you have 15 days to make changes to your website and marketing materials to suit FDA guidelines; and if you don’t, this could mean the banning of your supplement website, resulting in the loss of a huge portion of the U.S. market, dramatically decreasing your company’s revenue.

Your dream of boosting your supplement company’s sales through the roof and taking your company to the next level will have all but vanished. So now  you are thinking to yourself, “What can I do to solve this problem before it starts?”

That’s where WE come in.

We are formally trained in the art of writing, and are well-versed in the guidelines set up by the FDA for supplement marketing, and specialize in writing marketing materials for supplement companies.

We know exactly what is required to ensure that the claims that you make about your supplement are FDA compliant, so that when you start marketing your supplement, you can focus your attention where it should be: on increasing your revenue and growing your supplement company!

Let The Med Writers help you get the new year off to a great start!

Were You In The 21% Successful At Getting NIH Funding In 2014?

Unfortunately, only about 1 out of every 5 grant applications submitted to the NIH in 2014 was funded. That’s a lot of great projects going unfunded.

One of the best ways to increase your chances of getting your next grant application funded is to have other PhD scientists critique your grant and provide feedback and suggestions. Another way is to have a professional scientific writer edit your grant application to improve how it reads and eliminate errors.

At The Med Writers we provide both of those services to biomedical professors like yourself. Even if you have a tight deadline, that’s okay…we work quickly. For a grant application critique, edit or both, contact us now with some details on your grant application and we’ll give you a quote.

SEO Articles: Case Study

Below is a case study in the form of a testimonial from one of our current clients Nikki Steele of Boost Medical.

We presented The Med Writers with the challenging goal of producing over 100 articles in the space of just a month, with a follow-up project of more in-depth (5,000 word) articles the month following that. We needed these articles to help us quickly gain a presence in a new market for a medical clinic we were opening. All articles had to pass a strict Copyscape test, adhere to our deadlines, and fit our budget. Since launching our website that is comprised mostly of content written by The Med Writers, we now have:

• 185 keywords ranking on page #1 of Google

• 173 keywords ranking on page #1 of Bing

We were consistently impressed with the structure, layout, and research contained within these articles and have found that they rank very well in the short amount of time since we posted them. We expect to see even better ranking over time as our domain authority increases.

On all counts, The Med Writers were able to surpass our expectations and they are now one of our most trusted vendors for writing high-quality, medical content for the web.

Grant And Manuscript Success Secrets Of Top Biomedical PIs

Some labs publish new papers every month and get millions in grant money. How do they do it? No, it’s not that those PIs work more than you do.

Their biggest secret: they leverage their time, doing what they and only they can do and delegate everything else to the right people for each task.

No one knows what you know – the big picture view, the why behind everything, all the details, the right papers to cite, where projects are going, etc. You always need to be the brains behind everything your lab publishes. Every paper and every grant application needs your input and feedback. But you don’t need to be the writer and/or editor for everything. It limits how many papers and grant applications you can do and stops your lab from growing.

Top PIs work with experienced scientific writers and editors, quickly giving them the information they need to properly write or edit their papers and grant applications. The PI reads each draft, gives input and requests changes, then adds their finishing touches to the final draft.

Give this technique a try. The Med Writers is a team of biomedical PhD scientists trained as scientific writers, and available to help write or edit your lab’s papers and grant applications.

NIH Grant Writing – It Doesn’t Have to Be Time Consuming

Writing NIH grant applications can be intimidating, especially if your recent grant applications didn’t get funded, and even more so if the submission deadline is fast approaching. It is also quite time consuming. Nonetheless, it needs to get done and get done well, because you need the funding to continue your research. Get the help of experienced NIH grant writers rather than doing it poorly because you don’t have the time or expertise needed to write your NIH grant application yourself.

The Med Writers team has extensive experience writing NIH grant applications. In addition to writing and editing NIH grant applications for clients, as a team of PhD scientists, we have all written NIH grant applications to get funding for our own academic research at some point. Hence, we know the NIH grant writing process inside out. We can handle everything for you.

If you are fortunate enough to not be under a tight deadline and are just thinking about writing a new grant application but are not yet sure which NIH grant would be best suited to your project, we can help you to identify the best one. Once we get to the actual writing of the NIH grant application, you will send us all the papers and data you have and we will ask questions as they arise; however, you won’t need to hold our hands through the process. We realize that our clients – professors, post docs, doctors and healthcare centers – are very busy, and don’t have time to hold a writer’s hand, and should not have to.

Does the NIH grant that you want to apply for have a fast-approaching submission deadline? No problem! Our NIH grant writing and editing experts can turn it around fast. Email us now with details of your NIH grant application, and let us get started today. Our email is info at themedwriters.com. We look forward to helping you.

Native English/Spanish Medical Translators – Find Them Here

Do you have a product or service that you would like to market in Central and South America, or to the vast Spanish speaking population in North America? Or perhaps you have some important research that you’ve written up that you would like to publish in both English and Spanish? If so, then you are no doubt in need of a qualified, native translator to do your English to Spanish or Spanish to English medical translation.

Of course, when it comes to medical and health related topics, accuracy in translation is of utmost importance! The last thing you want is trouble from the FDA, lawsuits from customers or ridicule from colleagues because your product, service or research has been misrepresented due to shoddy translation. Therefore, you need to choose your native English/Spanish medical translator very carefully.

There are two things that you should look for when choosing a native English/Spanish medical translator:

  1. A native, medical translator that is completely fluent in both English and Spanish, preferably one that has spoken both languages since childhood, as opposed to a translator that learned one language later in life
  2. A medical translation team that is knowledgeable in the subject matter, and therefore will be able to accurately translate medical and health related terms that may be unfamiliar to other translators

Well, your search is over because those two things are exactly what you will find at The Med Writers. The Med Writers is a team of PhD and MS-level science writers with a vast range of scientific and medical knowledge. We recently added an experienced native English/Spanish medical translator to our team. He is a native Spanish speaker who also has native fluency in English. He works along with our team of PhD’s to make sure that all medical terms are accurately translated, resulting in a finished product that will exceed your expectations.

If you have an English/Spanish medical translation project that you need help with, contact us and we’ll get back to right away with a quote. We look forward to working with you.

An FDA Warning Letter Does Not Have To Destroy Your Supplement Company

Has your supplement company received a warning letter from the FDA stating that the marketing on your website is not FDA compliant, and that if you don’t change it you will be fined or worse yet, they will ban the sale of your supplement in the US? If so, you are probably panicking right about now. No doubt you are thinking that if you have to shut your site down, even for a short time, it will affect the Google ranking that you worked so hard to build up; and the longer your site is inactive, the further down your ranking will plummet. At the same time, you are probably calculating how much revenue you will lose if your website is down or if the FDA bans the sale of your supplement. If you don’t play your cards right, you could lose so much business that you have to close down.

Clearly, closing down is not an acceptable option. Here’s the problem though, you may have no idea what the FDA guidelines are, or what you need to change in order to comply with them. This can be a terrifying situation for any supplement company, but especially for smaller supplement companies that may not have FDA attorneys or PhD scientists on staff that know what to do. Please don’t panic; we are here to help you. We are a team of PhD scientists with formal writing training, who specialize in writing marketing materials for supplement companies. We know what needs to be done in order to make your website FDA compliant.

Making your website copy FDA compliant involves a couple of things. Firstly, and most importantly, you need to find studies that will substantiate the claims you are making about your supplement. Of course, not all studies will fit FDA guidelines; hence why you need someone that knows the FDA guidelines and is experienced in finding the right studies and writing FDA-compliant marketing. A second thing that is involved in making your website FDA compliant is knowing what type of wording is acceptable under FDA guidelines. For instance, oftentimes, words such as “cure” or “treat” cannot be used, unless there is substantial evidence to support those claims.

Of course, this presents another challenge; FDA-compliant wording can be limiting, and now that you don’t have the freedom to say exactly what you want, it can be more challenging to create convincing marketing materials. This is yet another reason why you need an expert on your side, someone that can work within FDA guidelines, but still write convincing marketing.

If you’ve received a warning letter from the FDA, it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Contact us right away so that we can started immediately on making your website and other marketing materials FDA compliant.

Can You Really Find a Great Science Writer for Five Dollars?

The simple answer to that question is: NO, you cannot find a great science writer for five dollars! Sure, there are sites out there, such as Fiverr, that are advertising science writers who will write you an article for five dollars; but if what you are looking for is quality and expertise, you are not going to find it for five dollars.

I’m guessing that if you are looking for a great science writer it is for one of two reasons:

  1. You have a great new product or service that can be backed by science, and you need someone to take the scientific data and translate it onto the written page in such a way that it will be understandable and appealing to a lay audience, and help them to see the benefits of purchasing what you are offering
  2. You are a researcher or scientist who is looking to have your research published in a peer-reviewed journal and need someone to write up your findings in way that will get it accepted to your chosen journal.

Regardless of which of those scenarios describes your needs, one thing is sure, if you want to accomplish your goal you need a great science writer that has the right education and experience.  Ideally, your great science writer should have a science degree. That way you know that they will be able to find and understand the scientific studies needed to complete your project. Of course, not everyone with a science degree is necessarily a good writer though. Therefore, in addition to a scientific education, your science writer should have proven writing experience.

We are a team of American PhD and MS level science writers, with degrees in everything from Biomedical Sciences to Neuroscience and Psychology to Pharmacology and Botany. In addition to the right education, our great science writers are all native English speakers who have extensive writing training and experience. We carefully test all of our science writers to make sure that they can deliver the quality that our clients need and deserve.

So, whether you are trying to get a paper published or just get word out about your new product or service, contact us to see how our team of  great science writers can help you accomplish your goal.
