Sales revenue is a result of a combination of sales force efforts and marketing messaging. For marketers (especially in the healthcare industry) it’s often very difficult to establish to what extent the marketing messages contribute to the sales revenue. As such, it is difficult to establish which aspect of the marketing message is landing and which isn’t.
Often, ahead of the launch of a new molecule, pharmaceutical marketers enlist the assistance of medical specialists in the therapeutic area in which the drug is indicated, to advise them on which clinical features of the drug/ product resonate most with clinicians and how to communicate these. This ensures that healthcare professionals (HCPs) receive relevant messages about the drug that will help their clinical decision-making.
However, it is only after the drug/ product launch that marketers know whether their messaging is effective (and usually based on sales results and sales rep feedback). As such, the feedback is anecdotal and does not represent the views of a large sample of prescribing HCPs.
Being able to track (in real-time) various aspects of the drug/ product’s messaging opens up opportunities for marketers to establish which aspects of their messaging are having an impact and which need reinforcing.
EMGuidance’s Product Listings provide marketers of pharmaceutical, diagnostic, device and nutrition products an opportunity to differentiate their product from others in the same class/ category – by making it more visible in search results.

This data helps you to understand HCP information needs thus enabling informed message amendments as required.
The great thing is that this feedback can also be used to guide the sales force on which aspects of the marketing message they ought to focus on at a given time.
Here are some tips on how to ensure that your Product Listing is impactful:
- Ensure the content is up-to-date and well-written. Grammatical errors and a confusing layout are off-putting to any reader, and more so when clinical information is being presented.
- Use high-quality images.
- Make your Product Listing part of the sales team’s marketing material artillery. Once your content is live on EMGuidance, your sales team can register as industry Partners to access their company’s content which they can share with their customers via WhatsApp, email or SMS, as a reinforcement of the discussion they have had with their customers. The sales team can also use the Product Listing to stay engaged with hard-to-see or remote customers.
- If you have great content on a corporate website, make sure these can interface with our platform for a seamless user experience.
- Add your sales team’s contact details so HCPs can contact them directly if they have any additional questions.
