Manhattan Research Ranks the Top Pharmaceutical Branded Websites by Rx Request Rates

While Chantix and Cialis Lead, Many Heavily Advertised Brands Lag Behind

NEW YORK, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan Research, a leader in syndicated research and marketing services for the health and pharmaceutical industry, today revealed the top pharmaceutical branded product websites ranked by offline requests by U.S. adult consumers. The product site rankings are based on the comprehensive online consumer research study with 5,112 U.S. adults titled ePharma Consumer(R) v7.0: The Future of Integrated DTC Marketing. In addition to the top product site rankings, the study provides in-depth data on more than 200 leading pharmaceutical product sites including site satisfaction, site search rationales, tools and features desired on product sites, and a wide range of consumer actions taken afterwards.

"Having the most unique visitors is no longer the ultimate goal of a successful pharmaceutical product site," says Mark Bard, president of Manhattan Research. He continues, "Brand teams and agencies are being challenged to demonstrate the economic and strategic value created by these online destinations - beyond the raw number of visitors or page views. After all, if a site is all traffic and no action then what is the strategic value of the site?"
