  • Using social listening tools, we also looked at the top 2 online profiles per market (as identified by the Therapy Area Overview and desk research on Twitter or Facebook).
  • Provided insights into what type of content is shared, when it is shared (day of week, time of day), frequency and audience engagement (likes, comments, re-shares and engagement).
  • We provided insights and recommendations based on the consolidated analysis of what we heard through the conversation analysis and what we saw relevant targets were doing through the analysis of their behaviour online.
