Is lack of experience hurting doctors' perceptions of your brand?

Lack of experience may be keeping two melanoma treatments from earning higher satisfactions scores. Results of our survey show that USbased medical oncologists and dermatooncologists are optimistic about these two drugs, but haven't had many opportunities to prescribe them. Meanwhile, the top 2 brands are comfortably ahead thanks mainly to widespread perceptions about their clinical effectiveness and benefit to patients.

Find out how doctors rate your brand, get insight into why, and learn what you can do to boost your satisfaction score in FirstView's NPS+ Melanoma 2017 US.

Building on the respected net promoter score NPS, the report compares eight major melanoma drugs with easytouse KPIs that highlight ways you can improve brand health. You'll also see how loyal doctors are to your brand, learn which promotional messages resonate best, and get doctors' candid thoughts in a unique Brand DNA section.

Top Takeaways

Doctors are happy, but not very loyal: While more than twothirds of doctors are satisfied with available treatments, less than a quarter of them prescribe one brand exclusively.

The top brands get results: Two brands are vying for first place, with doctors recommending them mainly because of their clinical effectiveness.

The market leader could surge even further ahead: The brand with the highest NPS could increase its already sizeable market share by almost 1,000% if it can win over Detractors.

Lack of experience is hurting the two trailing brands: While some doctors have good things to say about each of these brands, many report that they haven't had a chance to prescribe them.

Are the two trailing brands the drugs of last resort? Promoters of one tend to recommend the other more than competing products.

Convenient administration is important: Promotional messages related to administration are a key driver of recommendations for half of the surveyed brands.

What is Net Promoter Score?

NPS is a customer loyalty metric developed by and a registered trademark of Fred Reichheld, Bain Company, and Satmetrix. It was introduced by Reichheld in his 2003 Harvard Business Review article One Number You Need to Grow.

How does NPS work?

NPS measures overall brand satisfaction and loyalty by asking one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend this brand to a colleague?"

Responses given on a scale of 0 not at all likely to 10 extremely likelyare used to classify respondents into 3 categories:

Detractors are those who answer 0 6.
Passives are those who answer 7 8.
Promoters are those who answer 9 10.

How is NPS calculated?

The percentage of detractors the percentage of promoters = NPS.

For example, 25% Promoters, 55% Passives and 20% Detractors give you an NPS of +5.

NPS can range from 100 everybody is a Detractor to +100 everybody is a Promoter. The higher the score the healthier the brand.
