Blue Water Biotech Teams with BFW Advertising to Market and Advertise Commercial Product Portfolio

CINCINNATI, July 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Blue Water Biotech, Inc. (“Blue Water” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: BWV), a biotechnology and pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing transformational therapies to address significant health challenges globally, today announced the signing of a Master Services Agreement with bfw Advertising Inc. (“bfw”) to generate marketing and advertising material for Blue Water’s commercial stage drug portfolio.

Based in Boca Raton, Florida, bfw has more than three decades of experience supporting clinical and commercial stage life science companies, generating effective and impactful brand campaigns, including digital, direct to consumer, and health care provider content. Bfw will work with Blue Water’s commercial team to increase awareness for its commercial products through patient-facing materials, website updates, social ads, targeted provider engagement, as well as materials to support Blue Water’s sales team, among other services.

“Signing this agreement and generating an action plan with bfw is a critical step in the execution of our commercial launch strategy for our products,” said Joseph Hernandez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Blue Water. “By creating targeted, effective marketing materials, we can maximize patient, healthcare provider, and payor awareness to ensure long-term success for Blue Water. With their impressive history of campaigns in the life science industry, we are confident that bfw is the right firm for this endeavor, and we look forward to the official launches of these programs in the coming months.”

“With their recent acquisitions and shift into a commercial-stage as well as clinical-stage company, this is certainly an exciting time for the team at Blue Water,” said Christian Boswell, President and Creative Director at bfw. “Through decades of working in the life science industry, we understand the intricacies of marketing and advertising in this space and how challenging it can be for pharmaceutical companies to create cohesive brands. Blue Water has built a strong portfolio of products in recent months, and we are honored to utilize our institutional knowledge to support them and to help them navigate the commercial arena.”

Blue Water recently expanded its operations to become a commercial stage company with the acquisition of several FDA approved assets across multiple indications, including urology, cardiology, inner ear infections and pain management. Blue Water’s commercial team will work closely with BFW to identify key areas where targeted advertising and marketing support can enhance product uptake and utilization in each respective market.
