Synexus Clinical Research
Whilst contracted to Synexus Clinical Research (human health), working remotely as their Global Social Media Strategist, I was responsible for creating a social media marketing strategy & project managing the delivery of the strategy in a regional context across 8 countries.
I also developed eight country websites and identified patient stories and produced digital assets for content marketing campaigns. As a content creator, I produced assets and as an editor and curator, I managed third party content production, consisting of written copy, photography, video & graphic design. I ensured all content was compliant and search engine optimized prior to publishing, ultimately delivering multi-channel engagement, within specific brand guidelines.
The social media strategy bridged the gap between offline & online experiences, with the goal of optimising the company's contribution to getting new medicines to market. The social media strategy promotes authenticity in everyday communications, with colleagues, with health care professionals, with sponsors and with patients.
The result was an increase in patient sign up for clinical studies, ultimately enabling new medicines to come to market within specific timescales. I was instrumental in delivering successful patient research studies relating to osteoporosis and asthma.
I advised the CEO & C-suite on the procurement of enterprise social listening & engagement SaaS. The software enables patient engagement teams to monitor social media and online forum discussions around specific medical conditions and to enable engagement where appropriate. The software also assists with reputation management. I also reported directly to the CEO & C-suite on marketing ROI.
My social media strategy also helped to strengthen the Synexus employer brand.
During my time with Synexus I also beta tested a 3rd party app; ‘Health-Unlocked’, and I represented Synexus at the 9th Clinical Trials Summit in London, where I hosted an international panel discussion on Social Media in Health Care.
