By “cordless,” I mean the growing number of consumers who have abandoned broadcast or cable TV and rely solely on streaming services for their video content.

Social media influencers became de rigueur in consumer marketing almost as quickly as they became a public phenomenon in the first place. All sorts of well-known brands have jumped on the bandwagon: Sprint, Lagavulin, Old Navy, Fiji Water, pretty much any clothing or beauty brand, on and on. If a consumer brand isn’t partnering with someone on Twitter or Instagram, they might seem to the average civilian, or at least the average teen, a bit out of date. 

Of course, we can’t do that sort of thing in staid, slow-to-adapt pharma. Can we?
