Boosting the Performance of Pharmaceutical Product Launches through the Impact of Digital Marketing Innovation
CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As digital marketing strategies and tactics evolve, pharmaceutical companies must constantly adapt their digital marketing approaches to better support both pre-launch and launch activities for new products.
Companies investing in digital now will reap the rewards in future product launches, according to one pharma digital leader who participated in a Best Practices, LLC study on digital marketing impact.
"I think pharma gets the importance of digital now. The go-to-market approach may be entirely different three years from now, but there's going to be a big competitive advantage for the companies that took the time and put in the work to build up capabilities and embrace a multichannel and analytics-driven go-to-market approach," said a director of multichannel marketing.
To capture a snapshot of current approaches to improving the impact of digital marketing, Best Practices, LLC conducted a benchmarking research project that engaged 31 digital marketing leaders at 24 companies. The study examines how savvy biopharma digital marketers are enhancing the medical and commercial potential of new products, improving alignment with brand teams, and acquiring and training new digital marketers.
