Patients and payers are now well-known target audiences for pharma marketers who have expanded beyond the traditional pursuit of HCPs. But as the definition of customer keeps changing, even more target audiences continue to emerge. Are marketers yet savvy about these new opportunities? In our cover story, author Brenda Snow, Founder and CEO of the Snow Companies thinks, well…maybe not. Vital, yet unrecognized target audiences are clamoring for some well-deserved attention. Who are they? Click here and read all about it.
Speaking of well-deserved attention, we are incredibly thankful to the many people from across the pharma and medical device industries who responded to our annual Product Manager Survey. Marketers from AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Boehringer Ingelheim, Johnson & Johnson, Sanofi and more all took the time to complete our comprehensive survey so we could provide you with a wide-ranging analysis of today’s product manager—and the industry as a whole. For their greatest marketing successes and failures, the factors most likely to impact the industry next year, the hottest marketing trends and so much more, check out the supplement to this issue.
Finally, our annual innovation celebration is quickly approaching—the PM360 Trailblazer Awards Gala. It will be held Sept. 18, again at NYC’s inspiring Gotham Hall. Montel Williams should be equally as inspiring as this year’s keynote speaker.
Newsflash: 10 brand new initiatives are up for awards this year! And more of our innovative crowd will take home awards as we’ve added both a Gold and Silver winner for the Initiative categories. With a specially prepared three-course meal, open bar, music, dancing and plenty of opportunities to network, the event promises to be an exciting extravaganza.
