Successful marketing is based upon a deep understanding of the customer and positioning products to meet their needs. In the mid 1990’s pharmaceutical companies embraced strategic marketing to differentiate their products beyond clinical data and maintain competitive advantage. Though traditionally slower than fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) in adopting new commercial practices, in recent years the pharmaceutical industry has embraced ‘digital marketing’. Done well, this can generate significant benefits – but in the rush to ‘go digital’ many companies have forgotten many of the fundamentals of strategic marketing and are wasting money on initiatives that don’t add value to healthcare professionals (HCPs). To regain their commercial edge, companies must not be overly seduced by digital, and must return to the fundamentals by re-building their strategic marketing muscles.
