ramarketing’s Research & Strategy team – bringing life to data-driven insights

In the highly competitive field of life science marketing, we understand how vital it is to stand out. Whether that’s by ensuring our clients are seen as industry leaders, or spreading the word about our own life science marketing expertise, our team has mastered the art of getting noticed.

A unique asset we have within our delivery offering is our Research & Strategy (R&S) team, made up of science postgraduates, medical doctors, expert marketers, and experienced life science researchers. Their decades of collective experience enable them to provide data-driven solutions for clients across all areas of the sector. They excel in bringing life to the insights they gather, not just interpreting data but being able to offer actionable propositions that align with client commercial goals.

Introducing the Market Insights series 

A recent initiative brought together by the R&S team is a market insights series consisting of quarterly whitepapers. They aim to utilize valuable ramarketing-owned data collated from hundreds of interviews and research projects, summarizing key learnings and trends from the life science sector.

This never-before-shared data takes insights from C-suite professionals and research experts, enabling us to see our industry through a different lens.

Our first whitepaper, ‘The biotech blueprint for ranking and selecting vendors‘, delves into how biotech companies choose outsourcing partners and the key criteria they consider. It offers a proprietary analysis based on in-depth qualitative interviews conducted by our R&S team. Co-authored by Joao Incio and Katie Kovalevich, sector leads in the Bio and CDMO sectors respectively, this whitepaper is a valuable resource for biotech decision-makers.

In our latest whitepaper, ‘Harnessing the power of customer analytics‘, we offer a comprehensive exploration of decision-making drivers based on case studies conducted by our R&S team. This whitepaper covers various topics, including the benefits of using customer data to drive marketing strategy, key decision-makers, conference and event drivers, and the impact on investor involvement. It is a must-read for anyone looking to leverage customer analytics to maximize marketing efforts.

It’s time to have your say…

The primary goal for the market insights project is to create content that speaks to your pain points, as well as your current and future company goals. Our experts can then craft content that speaks to your most pressing matters, providing clarity and the insights you need to make informed decisions about your future strategy.
