Part 1: Insight

Generating insight remains a critical undertaking in which every pharma / biotech company strives to excel in underpinning their marketing strategy. The rise of digital technologies has left pharma marketers with a new dilemma. A wealth of new data sources has become available, yet the increasing amount of data has not yet improved the identification of insights as much as might have been hoped. Moreover, the insights generated tend still to be confined to diagnostic insights, for example, explaining current trends, rather than creating value for future decision making.

In the first of our 4-part series ‘The Pharma Marketing Reset’ exploring insights, we share:

  • Some of the biggest challenges marketers currently face when generating insights
  • New data sources and inspiration from other industries to drive better insight
  • Recommendations on how to ensure your brand team has the necessary insight capabilities to set them up for success!
