NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Announces New and Enhanced Direct-to-Consumer Marketing to Efficiently Engage Customers and Drive Avenova Sales

NovaBay® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE American: NBY), a company developing and commercializing high-quality eyecare and wound care products, announces a new and enhanced marketing program that includes text message communications (SMS) and targeted email programs aimed at enhancing the Avenova® brand while engaging with customers to drive online sales of Avenova products. The new and enhanced programs build upon the Company’s past highly productive marketing programs through proprietary channels including social media and email to cost-efficiently enhance customer loyalty and reach new prospective customers.

“We recently began using text messaging to capitalize on the breakaway success we’ve seen with email and social media marketing in driving customer engagement and Avenova sales while managing our market spend,” said Justin Hall, CEO of NovaBay. “SMS provides an additional, immediate touchpoint with our customers and we are encouraged by the strong initial results. We plan to use text messaging to share exclusive discounts, news and value-add content such as tips for enhancing eye health that, collectively, will keep our audience engaged and interacting with the brand. This program targets our existing, highly loyal customer base to enhance retention, while also reaching new audiences.

“The new SMS program builds on the incredible success we’ve had with our email and social media marketing programs to date,” he added. “In fact, sales of Avenova from our social media channel for this year’s first quarter increased more than 160% over the prior-year quarter, and revenue from our email program has been on a sustained upward trajectory since mid-2023, up more than 360%. To drive additional engagement, we recently refreshed our email campaign to include new creative and also added automation to further engage with current customers while expanding reach to new audiences.”
