Big Arrow Group (http://bigarrowgroup. com/) was selected by Biocodex in an agency review and bested two other leading agencies to earn the Florastor business based on their extensive strategic healthcare communications experience (http://bigarrowgroup. com/our_expertise. php) and capabilities. The Florastor account win is one of four new business wins for Big Arrow Group in the last six months.
"We were impressed with Big Arrow Group's comprehensive communications capabilities that extended from strategic planning and brand strategy to the execution of our advertising and promotional efforts, says Mary Berry, Marketing Manager for Florastor at Biocodex. "Initially, we were looking for just marketing deliverables, but Big Arrow Group provided us with strategic thinking and a well-thought out rationale that will build our brand recognition and create awareness to grow Florastor into the leading probiotic brand in the U. S."
Big Arrow Group will create and execute an aggressive campaign for the U. S. market that will include packaging, advertising, sales promotion, Web site design and outreach targeted to both the professional and consumer audiences.
"As the emerging popularity of probiotics and the understanding of their health benefits continue to grow, it will be our responsibility to maintain a high level of brand visibility and relevancy for the Florastor and Florastor Kids brands," says Mike Marino (http://bigarrowgroup. com/who_we_are. php), president and CEO of Big Arrow Group. "We are excited to work with Biocodex to support and grow the Florastor brand in the U. S."
