Continuum Clinical Named an MM&M Top 100 Agency for 2019

Marketing News – MarketingTools365 – Mktg News – Marketing Tools 365 – //// Business Marketing news and Mktg News : Continuum Clinical Named an MM&M Top 100 Agency for 2019 :

Medical Marketing & Media (MM&M) releases its annual list of top healthcare agencies, places Continuum Clinical at #55.

NORTHBROOK, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Continuum Clinical, a global clinical trial enrollment company, is proud to announce it was recently named one of the Top 100 agencies of 2019 by MM&M.

The Top 100 list, published annually, is the industry’s defining guide to the agency landscape and features companies both large and small. Since being named an MM&M Top 100 Agency last year, Continuum Clinical has undergone a rebrand, moving away from identifying solely as a “patient recruitment and retention company” to the broader identifier “clinical trial enrollment company”. Continuum has always functioned as an integrated company, but externally had been communicating its service offerings as distinct capabilities. Re-articulating its service offerings to better match how it had been functioning opened the door to a rebrand that included a new creative look and feel. This past year Continuum has seen a revenue growth of almost 8%, from $23.5 million in 2017 to $25.3 million in 2018.

“We are so proud to be included in this year’s MM&M Top 100 Agencies, making this the second time we have been named,” said Neil Weisman, president of Continuum Clinical. “We have long been an integrated company, but our integrated value wasn’t properly reflected externally. Investigating that misalignment led us to accurately articulate how we describe ourselves and allowed us to project our internal vision externally.”

Continuum also moved its Advocacy and Diversity & Inclusion team into the center of its integrated strategy and planning process. This move has helped assure the patient voice is incorporated at the initial step leading to the creation of more empathetic patient recruitment campaigns that successfully enroll clinical trials and improve ROI.

You can read more about Continuum Clinical in its Top 100 Agencies profile from MM&M.

About Continuum Clinical

Continuum Clinical is a global clinical trial enrollment company, providing fact-based patient recruitment solutions that deliver results. With over twenty-five years of experience, Continuum Clinical provides sponsors and CROs with patient recruitment and retention planning, study and site support, patient recruitment campaigns, patient advocacy and diversity & inclusion services, retention solutions, and reporting and analytics. We specialize in identifying and solving challenges that can impact successful clinical trial enrollment, from protocol development through study completion. Headquartered in the US, Continuum Clinical has more than 140 employees in the US and Europe and an expanded network of resources worldwide.

Beyond air miles: Emirates Airlines rewards customers for engagement

Emirates Airlines believes it can do loyalty better and is evolving its offering to get more people on board.

Most recently, this has involved a shift towards using the lifecycle of the customer to do more targeted messaging. Whereas much of the messaging in the app has been operation-focused in the past, such as around flight information, Emirates is now looking to engage customers at the moments where there is a “bigger chance for that instantaneous impulse purchase”.

For example, if a customer is travelling economy class but Emirates knows they are travelling for business and a seat with more legroom becomes available last minute, Emirates would offer that option through the app.

Emirates already offers paid seating and excess baggage options. “[This] is about monetising that capability,” James Curry, Emirates’s head of product design and loyalty, said at the Festival of Marketing.

But in a way that doesn’t make customers feel like they are being “fleeced” or that Emirates is trying to squeeze more money out of them.

We have to find ways to still use a currency but also to reward people based on their engagement so it’s not just about the transaction.

James Curry, Emirates Airlines

For Curry, who is responsible for the Emirates Skywards programme, the three most important pillars of loyalty are simplicity, having a strong customer proposition and being able to connect emotionally with the customer.

While he believes airlines have done a very good job of connecting emotionally with the high transaction tiers – silver, gold and premium customers – Curry said it has been “pretty poor” when it comes to the mass tier.

“The future is about finding ways for the mass tier – the people who fly once every 12 to 18 months – to truly connect emotionally,” Curry said.

For Emirates, this means finding new, less transactional ways to reward people for their loyalty.

“Look at young people now; they want instant gratification, they don’t want rewards two to three years down the line,” he explained. “We have to find ways to still use a currency but also to reward people based on their engagement so it’s not just about the transaction.

Rethinking loyalty: Why brands are starting to reward the right type of behaviour over spend

“It’s about: have I been active on social media? How long have I spent in the customer journey? If I fly London to Sydney, I’ve probably spent 30 hours within airports, transfers, on board, waiting for bags. Can we reward the time spent with us as well as the value of the transaction?”

Loyalty is treated as a commercial function within Emirates, with commercial teams responsible for “pulling the right levers” to engage loyalty in the right way to deliver the results for the business.

However, it is the job of the vice-president of membership to ensure there is a “very deep and close relationship” with all parts of the business so that the member experience is consistent throughout.

“At the end of the day, the culture is: [it] doesn’t matter how amazing the product we design is if it cannot be delivered by our cabin crew or staff at the check-in desks,” Curry said.

“Sometimes if it’s not the right connection, it can be more damaging than not doing it. If we have the right structure in place, they have a tendency to go out and be evangelists for loyalty in the business.”
