This is a Special Offer at a REDUCED PRICE as a THANK YOU for odering a related reprint in the past!

SFE Supplement CoverOVERVIEW

Is it time for the pharmaceutical industry to revamp its physician marketing strategy? Pfizer thinks so. The world’s largest pharmaceutical company recently announced that it plans to “reverse a decadelong infatuation with multiple sales forces pitching the same products to the same doctors” (“Pfizer Plans $2 Billion in Cost Cuts,” WSJ, 2/11/2005).

Everyone knows that pharma sales reps are less effective than they used to be. Although the pharmaceutical sales force has doubled between 1995 and 2000, the number of audited calls has only increased by 10%.

Through articles and real-world case studies this Special Supplement presents the collective wisdom of many marketing experts who offer solutions to the problem of decreasing sales rep effectiveness and decreasing return on the physician marketing dollar.

The information in this Special Supplement is certain to give you a better understanding of the issues relating to physician access and how to improve the effectiveness of your physician marketing and sales campaigns.
