  9. 9. SECRETS OF SUCCESSFUL LABS  Some labs publish new papers every month and get millions in grant money  The PIs leverage their time, doing what they and only they can do and delegate everything else to the right people for each task  PIs always need to be the brains behind everything the lab publishes - every paper and every grant application needs their input and feedback but they don’t need to be the writers and/or editors for everything  These PIs work with experienced scientific writers and editors, quickly giving them the information they need to properly write or edit their papers and grant applications  The PI reads each draft, gives input and requests changes, then adds their finishing touches to the final draft
  10. 10. SUCCESSFUL MARKETING  We write for several marketing agencies because they have no medical expertise  We can speak to a customer audience of doctors, scientists, researchers  We also write for patients and a general audience at an 8th or even 6th grade level, depending on the customer demographics  It is necessary to take complex medical/scientific information and convert it to the benefits the customer is looking for
