Why are some EU5 RCC brands standing out more than others?

There are various options available to EU5 oncologists to treat renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Clearly some of these options are achieving greater levels of loyalty and satisfaction than others – but why? What are the key factors driving physician choice and how does each of the leading brands compare to its competitors?

NPS+ RCC (EU5) gives a unique insight into the overall brand health of 9 leading treatments for RCC currently being used in Europe. 150 oncologists were surveyed on key issues including brand messaging, prescribing behaviour and satisfaction levels. The results provide valuable insight for brand marketers seeking new ways to stand out.

Top Takeaways
  • Two brands lead the way, and the rest don’t even get close. Of the 9 brands included in the survey, two brands lead the way and are 14 points ahead of third place. But 6/10 brands don’t even achieve a positive NPS. Which ones lead the way, and where are the key fights for lower places?
  • Brand loyalty is difficult to come by. Loyalty scores of less than 3 indicate low loyalty, and none of the brands surveyed managed to score above this magic number. Is clinical differentiation really that low?
  • Satisfaction scores lower than the US. EU5 physicians aren’t as satisfied as theiry US counterparts, it would seem. What’s causing this low level of satisfaction, and is it being felt across all brands, or just a small selection?
  • Is there a dominant brand message? Find out which messages are resonating with physicians, and take your brand’s positioning strategy to another level.
  • In their own words. What do doctors say each brand means to them? For example, which brand is described as ‘a reliable, safe reference treatment’ and which brand is dubbed as ‘too aggressive’?

A Report Based on Expert Knowledge

We surveyed 150 EU-based oncologists chosen from the largest community of validated physicians in the world. We conducted the survey between January 10-20, 2018.

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.

What is FirstView NPS+?

NPS+ turns your Net Promoter Score into actionable information by answering key questions about brand loyalty.

Each NPS+ report examines doctors’ relationships with the brands used to treat a major disease area—measuring brand loyalty and showing you how it affects your market share. NPS+ also examines “brand DNA”, revealing in doctors’ own words what brands mean to them.

Instead of one simple metric, NPS+ gives you a detailed picture of brand health that highlights areas for improvement, and helps you see exactly what steps you need to take next.
