Pharmaceuticals and Biotech

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies face a marketing environment with tremendous fragmentation across customers – the consumer is the patient, but the decision maker is a physician, and the payer is typically a third-party – and with a limited commercial window in which to maximize sales outcomes. In this environment, effective sales and marketing choices are essential to make the most of each product opportunity. We help pharmaceutical and biotech firms address a broad range of sales and marketing issues, including:

Commercialize New Products Successfully

  • Assess market opportunity for proposed new products, including sales forecasting and market definition
  • Create and implement a new product launch strategy, including value proposition development for each proposed customer group

Maximize Revenue of Existing Brands

  • Optimize inter-related marketing decisions including segmentation, targeting, positioning, and promotional mix

Drive Increased Sales Force Effectiveness

  • Design the sales force structure, size, and deployment to accommodate an evolving portfolio of products and changing customer needs
