In the case study titled, "This little meter went to market," Facebook writes, "A targeted campaign for a new-to-the-market pocket diabetes smart meter not only created awareness and sales leads, but also fostered a supportive and engaged online community."
As a result of the three month social media campaign on Facebook, LabStyle doubled its online sales and tripled its sales in Australia.
"LabStyle is on the forefront of delivering technology that empowers people to take charge of their health. This is a truly user-centric healthcare revolution. Through online engagement of Dario users, we've created an information sharing network of supportive, like-minded people living with diabetes who are empowered and thriving," stated Erez Raphael, LabStyle's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Working on social media platforms such as Facebook is a natural extension of our mobile app-based healthcare solutions. The Dario has been extremely well received in the glucose monitoring market and we intend to introduce similar apps for other indications where patients can similarly benefit from being fully in control of their own monitoring and engaging in a community of users."
According to mhealthshare mobile health apps will generate $26.5 billion in revenues in 2017.
