  • Description

How well does your MSL KOL engagement activity compare to competitors?

  • What tools are being used today to measure engagement with KOLs?
  • How often are KOLs surveyed regarding satisfaction levels?
  • Which metrics are used to gauge KOL opinion?
  • How frequently is KOL engagement monitored for face-to-face interactions, email, social media, mobile messaging applications, phone calls and teleconferences?
  • How often do teams map engagement metrics to a KOL's individual experience journey?

It's vital to regularly monitor your MSLs to establish whether they are engaging with KOLs often enough and in the most effective manner. But what is the most popular balance of quantitative and qualitative KOL engagement metrics, and which specific tools are being applied? Are MSLs generally satisfied with their current measurement strategies or do they believe there is room for improvement?
