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.

English/Spanish Translators That Specialize in Medical Content – 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 translator to do your English to Spanish or Spanish to English 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 English/Spanish translator very carefully.

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

  1. A 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 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 English/Spanish 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 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 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 science writer that has the right education and experience.  Ideally, your 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 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 science writers can help you accomplish your goal.

Doctor Endorsements: You Don’t Have To Sign Away A Percentage Of Your Profits To Get One

In view of today’s competitive supplement market, and the ever growing number of well informed, health conscious consumers, you can’t just passively sit back and hope that your new supplement formulation will sell itself. Potential customers are going to want to see a reason to choose your supplement formulation over the competitor’s.

You probably realize that one of the ways to help potential customers see the benefits of your product, and increase sales, is by getting a doctor endorsement for your product. Perhaps you’ve been holding off on taking that step though because a lot of MD’s or PhD’s may require a percentage of your profits in order to endorse your supplement, but you aren’t ready to sign away a portion of your profits for a doctor endorsement. And who can blame you, you are in this game to make money, right?

Well, you can keep your profits where they belong, IN YOUR POCKET! Here at The Med Writers we do not ask you to hand over a portion of your profits or company in exchange for a doctor endorsement. We charge a one-time fee for the endorsement, and then you can use that endorsement for as long as you’d like, providing of course that you do not make changes to the supplement formulation. And in the event that you do decide to make changes, all you have to do is inform us and for a small fee we will re-evaluate the formulation, and if we find that it still meets our high standards for safety and efficacy our doctor  will continue to endorse it.

So, stop procrastinating on getting that much needed doctor endorsement for your new supplement formulation. Contact us today, and see how a doctor endorsement really can be affordable and help to increase your sales.

Pitfalls To Avoid When Formulating A New Supplement Or Nutraceutical Product

If you have been keeping up on current trends, you recognize that many people today are trying to move away from prescription drugs to more natural ways to improve and maintain their health. A huge way that people are trying to accomplish this is through the use of nutraceuticals or dietary supplements. That’s why many discerning business people are developing new supplements and nutraceuticals. However, there are many factors that can contribute to whether or not you succeed in your efforts to formulate and market a new supplement.

Here are some of the pitfalls to avoid when trying to bring a new supplement formulation to market:

1. Hiring unqualified supplement formulators – If you do not make sure that your supplement formulators have the right education, experience and expertise you can end up with a supplement formulation that:

  • Is not safe – it causes uncomfortable or even dangerous side effects
  • Is not effective – your new supplement formulation just doesn’t do what you claim it will do. This could be because ineffective ingredients were chosen, the ingredients that were chosen are ones that don’t work well together, the dosage amounts are not optimal or all of the above

2. Using the wrong manufacturer – Some of the things you need to watch out for when choosing a manufacturer for your new supplement formulation are:

  • High minimum orders – especially when you are just starting out, and have not yet had the opportunity to become profitable, the last thing you want is to have to place huge orders
  • Manufacturers that use inferior quality ingredients – this can minimize the effectiveness of your new supplement formulation

3. Not marketing your product well – The effect of poor marketing really cannot be underestimated. Even if you have put together a supplement formulation that is fabulous and has potential to be the next big thing, it never will be if nobody knows about it and how great it is. Unless you get a highly trained medical copywriter you could end up with:

  • Sales copy that doesn’t sell – often because the person who wrote the copy did not understand the product well enough to write convincingly about it
  • Sales copy that is poorly optimized, ranks low in a Google search,  and therefore does not attract visitors to your site

Any one of the things mentioned above can adversely affect the potential success of your foray into the world of supplements, and therefore your bottom line. But there is a way to avoid all those pitfalls. Find someone who is knowledgeable and experienced, someone that can take you through all of these steps stress free. That’s what we do here at The Med Writers. We will formulate a supplement for you that is safe and effective, help you to find the best manufacturer for your needs and work with that manufacturer to make sure your supplement formulation is made as designed, and write highly effective, keyword rich sales copy that will attract visitors to your site and convert those visitors into customers.

Great Medical Copywriters – Your Medical Marketing Agency Needs Them

If you run a medical marketing agency, you are well aware that you aren’t alone. Marketing agencies are a dime a dozen right now. Of course, not all medical marketing agencies were created equal. So what separates “the men from the boys”, so to speak, when it comes to having a profitable medical marketing agency? Two words – great copywriters. We’re not talking good, but great – copywriters that turn out copy that converts. Your medical marketing agency is nothing without them.

So what makes a copywriter great, as opposed to just good? To be a great copywriter you need, not just sales skills, but you need to be able to understand the product or service that you are trying to sell. That’s the edge that The Med Writers can give you. We are scientists and medical writers, with several members of our team being highly trained sales writers. So basically, we know both the science behind your client’s products and services, and the techniques needed to sell them. We work with project managers in medical marketing agencies to produce copy that will blow your client’s minds.

You may be thinking though, isn’t it better to just find someone like that and have them in house on payroll, as opposed to using remote contract copywriters? The simple answer to that is “NO”. Let me tell you why.

Using qualified contract copywriters is going to save you money and time. How? Well, you don’t need to provide a remote contract copywriter with office space to work in, a computer to work on, and let’s not forget those costly benefits packages that employees get. There will be no training costs involved either, because here at The Med Writers we have already done the legwork to find the best medical copywriters. As a result, when a new project comes up, all you need to do is tell us what the client wants, and one of our great copywriters will go to work. Nothing more will be needed on your end – no hand holding, no meetings, no calls. After an agreed upon amount of time, you will receive back credible, well-referenced work to forward on to your client. Should the need arise for edits to the copy, all you need to do is forward us the clients comments and our medical copywriters will get the edits done immediately, at no additional cost to you.

So, if your medical marketing agency wants to save money and time, and produce copy that will keep your clients coming back for more, contact us here at The Med Writers immediately, and see how our great copywriters can help increase your profit margin. Really, it doesn’t make sense not to.
