ghost.company wins healthcare marketing award – two times

The „Golden Scalpel“ is the most important award of the pharmaceutical industry in Austria. We were nominated two times and made it two times on the first place – what a great use of the chances. Our awarded projects are an integrated HIV awareness campaign on behalf of Gilead and a direct mailing campaign for Pfizer and their brand Parkemed.

The HIV awareness campaign consists of the website www.hivheute.at, an app, animated movies, google AdWords and newspaper title pages. For Parkemed, we realized a multilevel direct marketing campagn with a creative key visual and eye-catching mailing-tools. Both campaigns worked very well in the particular market and generated high response rates.
 „We really like both projects and put a lot of heart in it“, explained Michael Mehler, founder and owner of ghost.company. „Especially the awareness campaign for HIV and its effective treatment is still important nowadays. The first place for Pfizer completed the success and we couldnt be happier.“

A great result, that we celebrated extensively with our clients at the award show in the beautiful Viennese Sofien Halls.
