Excerpt from Pharmaceutical Marketing 


Digital marketing strategy has two main aspects: developing the strategy and then executing the associated tactics. The most commonly involved group when designing digital strategies is marketing (100%) followed by outside agencies or vendors (86%) (Figure 8). In these strategy meetings, teams consider several factors, including the target patient population, therapeutic area and geographic region. According to the interviewed consultant, region can affect strategies because each country has its own pharma marketing rules and regulations. For instance, the interviewed executive explains that the US and Europe have more stringent regulations about digital marketing than emerging markets.
