    Unlocking Promotional Success: Insights from 140+ Marketing Mix Studies

    The pharmaceutical sales and marketing landscape has observed a remarkable transformation in the past five years, propelled mainly by changing consumer preferences and technological advancements. One of the most prominent developments during this period has been the increasing focus on digital marketing channels. Traditional sales approaches are being joined by virtual channels such as email outreach, social media campaigns, and online advertising. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated this transition as face-to-face interactions became restricted. Several other factors have contributed to this “digital ascendance,” fundamentally altering how pharmaceutical companies interact with healthcare professionals, patients, and key account customers.
