Why not? It will anyway dissolve in your stomach. So you might as well break it!
No, it’s not what I mean to say. What does name BreakthePill mean?
I see. There is more than one way to interpret “BreakthePill”.
Today in Indian pharma industry, strategies and campaigns that are followed by most of the players are almost identical. No wonder, everyone is getting almost identical results. BreakthePill conveys that if you expect different results, your strategy and marketing too needs to be different.
BreakthePill denotes the mindset to challenge (and then try to break) every assumption we make.
There are many who believe that pharma industry is quite typical. Many things that marketers can do in FMCG or in other industries are not possible in pharma. BreakthePill stands for the spirit of trying to break every possible pharma rule.
Lastly, BreakthePill could also mean ‘out-of-the-pill-thinking’ (We had enough of Bono and his out-of-pill thinking’, after all, we all need some change J)
Is it not the fact that pharma marketer has to operate with lots of restrictions? How much exposure of pharma industry do you have?
To get the answer, I will suggest you to read ‘About Miliind’.

Both. First you need to ‘break’ it before you ‘take’ it.
