Mullaney’s Pharmacy & Medical Supply


To increase awareness and build the business of a pharmacy with a much smaller budget than its larger competitors who dominate the same markets.

Holland created a unified brand across all mediums to establish a stronger presence in the Greater Cincinnati pharmacy and medical supply markets.

– Improved logo and tagline by incorporating Mullaney’s 70 years in business.
– Developed campaigns and executed targeted media buys in outdoor, transit, television,  radio, access buses and the yellow pages.
– Created low-investment, high-impact, dimensional direct mail pieces.
– Developed sales literature.
– Created web site and search engine marketing.
– Designed vinyl wraps for delivery trucks.
– Utilized PR to establish Mullaney’s as a trusted source for health care products and information.

Mullaney’s experienced real business results after executing Holland’s Fast Track to ROI Marketing Plan™. Holland has helped Mullaney’s triple their sales over the past 12 years amidst tough competition from national chains. They expanded their Blue Ash store by 20%, added a Compounding Center and nearly doubling their staff. Mullaney’s also recently added new stores in Cheviot, West Chester, Columbus, Dayton and Indianapolis.
