Conflict of Interest Disclosures for Josh Robbins
Employment:
Currently, I am owner of BNA Talent Group with a branding division offering strategic marketing, new product development, social media, market research and consulting services to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, healthcare and life science companies and nonprofits. Further information is available on the company website.
Clients have been and/or are:
Healthline, HIV Plus magazine,
Trial Reach, United Way, Planned Parenthood,
Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Quest Diagnostics,
Volttage Buzz, Johnson & Johnson,
State of Tennessee Health Department
Nashville CARES, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, AIDS.gov, The White House, Self Care Analytics, among others.
No Sponsorship of Blog Posts:
Blog posts may be written about companies that are former, current or prospective clients of BNA Talent Group or The Brandagement and about therapeutic areas I currently work in or may have worked on in the past from a branding and/or advertising and marketing perspective. From time to time, content posted on this website or the social profiles associated with my HIV advocacy could support the marketing objectives set forth by my brand management company that is educational to patients and supporters, newsworthy in the HIV awareness space, and beneficial to clients of that consultancy. However, no content posted on this site is guaranteed to any client of my agency regardless of therapeutic focus. If any content appears on imstilljosh.com, it is posted solely for the enjoyment of the readership without direct regard to the benefit shared by the client in my separate brand management consultancy.
However, no posts have been written on behalf of any biotechnology, nonprofit, pharmaceutical company or health information websites. I have not accepted any paid advertising, sponsorship or promotion. I am considering display advertising. Should any sponsored content or content be placed as advertisement or in benefit of a sponsor or advertiser, I will clearly identify such content and label it clearly with: “sponsored by” “sponsored content” “paid content” “advertisement” or “paid placement.”
All posts represent my own independent editorial opinion and do not represent the views of any client’s company. I am not a doctor and I do not advise readers on any medical therapy. Please consult your doctors. I also hired professional journalists from time to time for fact-based articles. Although, I pay these journalists for their time and content, I do not affect their articles with bias. I don’t even edit their submitted posts. If I do decide to make any changes, I will clearly mark them as “editors note.” I don’t claim any responsibility for these articles’ facts as I have not independently verified their claims or links. These journalists are considered professionals in their fields.
I do not own stock in any pharmaceutical or biotechnology company with the exception of any that may be purchased as part of a retirement mutual fund, without my active involvement. Should this change, I will notify you that I am acting in their behalf.
I do not have any affiliate marketing links on my blog. I do not make any commission on any products that I may discuss or mention on my site. I find affiliate marketing to be against my desire for meaningful, transparent relationships.
Here’s how I make money, if any yearly: 1) I am sometimes invited to speak at conferences based on my story and my use of social media. I am typically paid a very small honorarium for my time and preparation and expertise. This also includes payment for my travel, lodging and meals. 2) I am sometimes hired by clients to administer their social media accounts. Again, this is what I do for a living regardless of my blog. 3) I am sometimes hired to be a consultant for companies digital and/or social media strategies and to offer my professional opinion on how they can better connect with their clients. I am paid a below-average retainer for these services. These companies may include HIV-related publications, products and companies. 4) I wrote an E-book, and sell it on my site for $5. It is also available on other digital sites for purchase. There are sites and formats that are offered free of charge. And I do offer printing of my custom social images I’ve created, below average cost. 5) Finally, I am considering syndicating a video news beat to organizations. If I provide this weekly news piece, I may charge a monthly fee for their use of my original content. This covers the cost of the equipment, originally secured and licensed music, graphics and programs for editing.
Bottom line- I’ve made much less than I’ve spent on this site. But I wanted to be transparent with you. Email me if you have any questions:
 

Our website does not host any form of advertisement (at the moment).
