New video takes product information to the next level
NEW YORK Knowing that today’s executive is juggling more and more responsibilities these days, Drug Store News is introducing a new video that will help do some of that juggling for them — the Drug Store News edition of New Product Juggling.
The first video features three new products presented by guest host Ken Clark and co-host Mike Rosa — MyClyns germ protection spray, BrainSavers fruit and nut bar and BeneVia fruit drinks. After a brief product introduction, Clark juggles the products.
“We’ve always known that readers … want new product information, and we’ve tried a lot of different things with videos,” said Clark, editor-in-chief of Drug Store News’ sister publication Home Channel News. “By making a quick juggling video, we provide information about the product and keep their interest to the end.”
“It’s more than just fun; there’s a real educational element to it,” Clark said. “We have to be different; there is so much sameness out there [online], we wanted something to stand out.”

On Friday, Cadbury stocks increased 0.6%.
