Refining Message Testing for Greater Impact On Marketing Effectiveness


  • A growing pharma marketing agency was working with a biotech firm that was preparing to launch a groundbreaking new drug.

  • The agency was tasked with designing an impactful marketing campaign that would effectively communicate the drug's innovative technology to healthcare professionals.

  • The initial messaging strategy failed to resonate with the target audience, leaving the agency in search of a more effective approach.


  • The agency was struggling to identify the aspects of the drug that healthcare professionals found most compelling.

  • Initial messaging attempts failed to generate the desired level of interest or engagement.

  • The agency needed to understand the preferences of the healthcare professionals to create a message that resonated.


  • The agency engaged GRG Health's Doctor Survey Services to conduct comprehensive message testing among a targeted group of healthcare professionals.

  • A custom survey was developed and distributed to the target group, containing questions about various potential messaging strategies.

  • The survey also aimed to identify the key aspects of the new drug that healthcare professionals found most appealing.


  • The survey data revealed that healthcare professionals were most interested in the drug's innovative technology and its potential impact on patient outcomes.

  • They found messages emphasizing these points to be the most engaging.

  • It was also discovered that the professionals responded favorably to case studies demonstrating the drug's effectiveness in real-world scenarios.


  • The agency used these insights to redesign their messaging strategy, focusing on the drug's innovative technology and its impact on patient outcomes.

  • They also began to incorporate case studies into their communication materials to further illustrate these points.

  • This resulted in a campaign that resonated deeply with healthcare professionals.


  • The newly redesigned campaign proved to be highly effective, surpassing initial expectations.

  • Engagement with the campaign materials increased by 45%, reflecting the success of the new messaging strategy.

  • The biotech firm expressed satisfaction with the campaign results, acknowledging the impact of the refined messaging strategy.
