Top Takeaways

Two brands lead the chasing pack: For both brand health and loyalty, two drugs top the table in the US. Is the gap large or small? And how much longer before others close the gap?

Allegiance is an issue: Loyalty scores reveal that doctors are likely to switch between brands. Which individual drugs are more vulnerable than the rest?

Satisfaction has a downside: The majority of doctors are satisfied with the myeloma therapies on offer – but with a wide range of choices, standing out from the rest is proving difficult for some.

A tale of complementary combinations: Promoters of all brands have multiple second choices, suggesting drugs are used interchangeably. Are combinations at play or do physicians believe all myeloma drugs are interchangeable?

Time to appease the passives: For some brands the number of Passives is very high. Big market share gains could come if some companies focused on this group of physicians. Is your brand one of them?

Loud and clear: For some drugs, specific brand messages are resonating more with doctors, even amongst Passives and Detractors. Find out what doctors are hearing or missing.

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 likely)—are 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.
