Pharmaceutical Marketing in an Era of Continuous Change

Rosangela Checchia, Chief Executive Officer, Checon Pesquisa,

New York, NY, May 16, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - "We live in an environment of continuous change and unlimited access to knowledge. Given the regulatory issues, constraints and ethical aspects involved in the pharmaceutical industry, knowing how to act in this reality is critical," says Rosangela Checchia, Chief Executive Officer, Checon Pesquisa. There are new metrics in the market that can help pharmaceutical marketing executives overcome some of these challenges, increase profitability and become more accurate in decision-making, she adds.

From a research and consulting agency at the marcus evans PharmaBrand Summit 2012, in Munich, Germany, 11 - 13 June, Checchia shares her insights into pharmaceutical product marketing and how eye-tracking technologies can be effective in this arena.

- What would help pharmaceutical marketers make better decisions?

We live in very dynamic times, with the Internet and social media networks creating an environment of continuous change and unlimited access to information. Knowing how toact in this new reality is a challenge to all business areas, especially the pharmaceutical industry. In the BRIC countries, especially Brazil, organisations must understand the new Brazilian consumer, who is more educated, optimistic, affluent, informed and connected to the world than before, and therefore more demanding. New market research has made important contributions for more accurate decision-making.

- How can eye-tracking technology help pharmaceutical marketing be more effective?

This is an innovative measurement process with many possible applications. By examining fixations, saccades, pupil dilation, blinks and a variety of other behaviours, researchers can determine the effectiveness of a given medium or product.

Itis a considerable advantage to know what information has actually been perceived in graphic pieces, websites, portals, blogs, newspaper advertisements or publications, films, TV commercials, package designs or shelf displays. It is now possible to measure the retention time of someone's gaze and the sequence of images and content that is perceived and assimilated. This provides a huge step forward for the marketer to transcend from the realm of assumption (and guesswork) to that of highly precise and reliable measurement. Even information comprehension can be measured, signalling and indicating where there is a need for clearer and more objective language. All of these innovative results can add significant value to product and brand management, by providing insights into emotional responses and reactions.

- What initiatives work at establishing brand loyalty? What are consumers looking for?

Nowadays consumers take the quality of pharmaceutical products for granted. Prices must be within reason for companies to achieve their sales targets, but given the increasing commoditisation of products, brand importance has increased.

There is no magic formula for achieving brand loyalty or increasing market share, but new market research certainly helps us understand the different realities, cultures and needs (of countries, types of patients and communities) and provides us with a deeper understanding of all those involved in the relationship. Understanding and listeningto clients helps build loyalty, but this takes time, directed communication and research efforts on a broad spectrum.

We are beyond the era of asking, measuring and analysing. The future is about listening, co-creating and measuring emotions.
