The product – A supplement for the brain

  • Promotes longevity in brain health
  • Assists in the absorption of the hydration and nutrition
  • Amplifies productivity and overall wellbeing
  • Will be launched in January 2020, but email subscribers are invited to begin testing the product later this autumn

“We are creating the highest-quality multivitamin for the brain that can help promote longevity in brain health.”

The content – A weekly newsletter

  • Provides value to the users, educating them about how science practically impacts their brains
  • Contains curated content from scientific journals, making it accessible to the layperson

“I turn the science into English and make it engaging and fun for people to learn more about their brain every single week and how it works.”

Awareness of user needs

  • Delivering content to the right consumers through the right medium is very important
  • Consumers look at social media with a bit of skepticism towards the quality of the content
  • A weekly email newsletter is reliable and socially responsible, meeting people where they are

“All of these things [Facebook, Instagram, etc.] are platforms and who you choose to follow obviously impacts your relationship with that medium.”

Advice to creators and aspiring creators of medical apps

  • Develop your niche and become an expert
  • You cannot be all things to all people, but you can serve your specific audience very well
  • Implement some tests with your target demographics to determine how they want to interact with an app like yours

“There are four major pillars that I believe as core to having a healthy brain and they are hydration, nutrition, sleep, and social connection.”
