The year 2018 was filled with fond memories and milestones, starting with the PyeonChang Olympic Games in February 2018 and the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
For Vitoli, 2018 was also a milestone year as it materializes our development with pharmacies in Quebec and the establishment of exchanges with you!
2018 in figures
1,200 points of sale:
In January 2018, 130 pharmacies offered Vitoli products. Today, Vitoli is available throughout Quebec in more than 1,200 points of sale at Uniprix, Familiprix, Jean-Coutu, Brunet and certain other Proxim, Pharmaprix and Accès Pharma pharmacies. You can now request the quality and effectiveness of Vitoli products throughout Quebec as well as have trained professionals in more and more pharmacies.
1,250 trained health professionals:
We have continued and accelerated the training offered to health professionals in the use of Vitoli products (doctors, pharmacists and employees of pharmacies). We did training directly in pharmacies or by video conference with a company specializing in continuing medical education.
In addition, we have developed an online training platform that offers two new courses: Anxiety & Sleep Disorders and Fibromyalgia.
Our goal is to have at least one pharmacist trained in the use of Vitoli products in all product sales outlets, in order to provide you with the best advice and services from your pharmacists. Don’t hesitate to ask if a pharmacist has been trained at your pharmacy.
COMMUNICATION: 80,000 people reached per week
The year 2018 is marked by our discussions with you, the customers and enthusiasts of Vitoli. Vitoli’s website attracts more than 36,000 unique visitors per month and Vitoli’s publications reach 80,000 people per week on Facebook – that’s an increase of 400% compared to 2017. Many of you thank us for responding quickly knowing well that your questions are important to us and your testimonials are our motivation to continue to serve you well.
We also set up the Vitoli blog during the summer of 2018 to allow us to convey the most thorough information possible on healthy lifestyles as we age, but also on the causes and mechanisms of a large number of health problems to help you better understand what you can do to live better. 7 new collaborators join this initiative in order to produce quality content:
ANDRÉ PERREAULT, PHARMACIST
DR JACQUES LAMBERT, PHYSICIAN
PHILIPPE LENG, PHARMACIST
JAMIL EL KABBAJ, DENTIST
HÉLÈNE BARIBEAU, NUTRITIONIST
JO-ANNE GILBERT, KINESIOLOGIST
STÉPHANE MIGNEAULT, PSYCHOLOGIST
They actively participate in the dissemination of fair and credible health information which aims to share the best practices for an active and healthy life. For example, our article on the causes of fibromyalgia was viewed by 38,000 people in 72 hours at the time of publication.
AND ESPECIALLY YOU!
It’s a privilege to be able to engage directly with you through social media and over the phone. We are particularly proud to have established dynamic communication that allows us to exchange daily on the facets of a healthy active life. Please do not hesitate to write to us if you would like us to discuss specific health issues for which you need more information. Your questions and comments are precious to us and allow us to always stay motivated to develop the best products to support you throughout your life.
You are part of our team, thank you for being here with us since the beginning. We look forward to speaking to you in 2019 and interacting with your doctors and pharmacists to provide them with the information most relevant to their practice. Until then, from the entire Vitoli team, we wish you a happy holiday season with your loved ones and a year 2019 filled with beautiful surprises.
