In 2006, over $5 billion was spent on DTC advertising, most of it on the most expensive medium, television. Since then, DTC expenditure has decreased. This is due to a number of reasons, notably the emergence of new media for advertising. Since advertising moved onto the internet, there have been many developments which have revolutionized the way that products are promoted. Pharmaceutical companies were slow to move their advertising online but are now beginning to use it to their advantage. The internet has proven itself to be one of the most cost-effective forms of advertising; full campaigns can be run for the price of one television advertisement.

Social media is another risky yet rewarding method of promotion that pharmaceutical companies are beginning to explore. Through social media, consumers expect to be able to have a public conversation with the representatives of a brand; consumers will always expect their questions to be answered and will not hesitate to discuss adverse effects and any other problems that they consider to be the fault of a brand. However, through social media, pharmaceutical companies have an opportunity to improve their brand image through their responses to these enquires. Another huge advantage of social media is the sharing between friends and peer groups that it enables. A recommendation from a friend is trusted by 90% of people and 70% trust consumer opinions posted online (Google, 2011), so campaigns that are spread between friends by word of mouth can be more effective than traditional methods of widely broadcast DTC.
