Best Practices in Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Message Testing

Communicating and conveying the right message to your customer is critical to the success of your product. Whether you market to patients, physicians or caregivers, your product must convey a clear and compelling story to resonate with your audience and stand out from the crowd.

Message testing and development techniques

Through research, you can test, develop and validate messaging. In an online survey, respondents can provide feedback on a text description, a visual graphic or even a video advertisement. If you have a list of test messages, each of these can be evaluated in terms of overall appeal, usage intent or effectiveness. Large sample sizes from surveys can give you robust data and the level of confidence you need to go to market with a winning message.

Need an in-depth reaction or understanding of your audience? For example, how does a patient or physicians make treatment decisions? A qualitative deep-dive can be valuable for understanding your audience and tailoring your communication accordingly. In-person interviews or focus groups discussions can explore why a message does or does not resonate in situations unique to the healthcare industry.

At FocusVision, we provide researchers with a variety of tools to test and develop effective messaging:

    Determine which message resonates the most

  • Mix and match messages
  • Segment your messages by specialty or audience
  • Remain within all-important privacy and compliance guardrails
