Here’s our top takeaways:

1. Customer facing roles should be a part of your multichannel strategy

60% of you believe marketing should drive multichannel communication, but may be overlooking the value of having sales and commercial teams on board. All departments should come together and no longer be separated (KAM, Sales reps, maybe even MSL’s), to keep everyone up-to-date on the value and impact of multichannel.

The future role of sales reps is clear: they are crucial, as customer facing roles are the most important channel. It’s up to them to get your digital content adopted and make it impactful – and their focus should be on services and maintaining relationships.

2. Go from push to pull by creating thoughtful multichannel content around the needs of your customer facing roles:
  • Retain senior stakeholder support and internal sponsorship for digital communication
  • Focus on customer effectiveness over customer preference
  • Drive a cultural shift into change management
  • Build an environment that supports multichannel communication and clearly defines what the added value is – In doing so, your sales and commercial teams will then be the ones selling, and even demanding, multichannel content
  • Create digital content as flexible, guided conversations that your sales reps can use under varying conditions, and that enable your customers to pull the right messages for them
  • Support co-creation with tech

Why AI might be the rep’s best friend
When looking for the next big thing in digital communication, there’s nothing bigger than the sweeping changes promised by artificial intelligence. There’s little doubt that AI is coming to pharma but will it – as many in marketing and sales fear – just mean that people get replaced by computers? Or might it actually solve a problem that’s been perplexing marketers for years?

How to choose your digital channels
Like any other areas of marketing, pharma digital communication is subject to fashion. A new technology arrives, people naturally get excited. Meanwhile, established communication technologies receive less focus (even if they are producing results). It’s all too easy to get caught up in it all, but there is a more strategic way to work with digital channel selection.
