New York, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2011
EmPower Research today announced that it will be advocating mapping of Social Media data with pharmaceutical sales data to provide marketers better understanding of sales performance, and therefore make better decisions.
Debjani Deb, Managing Partner of EmPower Research said, “Traditional approaches that are currently in place in a vast majority of pharmaceutical companies use sales data as a lag indicator. Social Media listening and learning presents a terrific opportunity for decision-makers to understand the ‘why’ of sales performance.”
“Integrating Social Media insights as a lead indicator into sales planning and evaluation process can provide quality inputs related to influencers, brand preferences, regional nuances, drug adherence, and adverse events among others. Sales teams can now be better positioned to alter their strategies and positively impact their sales results.”
"This approach not only improves the quality of data for decision-making, but also provides an early warning mechanism for decision-makers."
Debjani Deb will be presenting on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at the conference which is being held at the Loews Hotel, Philadelphia, PA.
