Today in 1886, pharmacist John Pemberton placed his first advertisement for Coca-Cola in the Atlanta Journal. Now I can’t guarantee that an ad placed in Pharmacy Marketing Quarterly is going to turn your brand into a $74 billion company in 127 years from now . . . but what I can tell you is that Pharmacy Marketing Quarterly has nearly 3,000 subscribers to our print edition and those readers are either the decision maker in the pharmacy or hold a significant amount of influence and expertise in their area. In addition to that we also offer the magazine as a digital download and it’s available to read online! Plus we’re the only magazine that specifically addresses the issue of marketing and how to increase sales. A topic that every pharmacy owner is very interested in.

Michelle Sherman is no ordinary pharmacist. Originally from South Africa, she left with three thousand dollars and two suitcases and headed to the United States, to California, to make her dream come true. Check out Michelle’s story in Catching up with Michelle Sherman by Kathryn Gonzales in the latest issue of Pharmacy Marketing Quarterly. PMQuarterly.com/Magazine
I love independent pharmacy because it’s given me the life that I always wanted.
