CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Regardless of your function within the Pharmaceutical or Medical Device environments, corporate communications is perpetually evolving. Due to the ever-changing nature of external communications, corporations and professionals must continuously adjust their business-to-business (B2B) communication strategies and tactics. Measuring the effectiveness of these adjustments is difficult, but also critical as a way to fully adapt to today's communication options.

A research study by Best Practices, LLC further explored the various external communication strategies and tactics and how people utilize various communication formats to reach core decision-makers. Some of the external communication highlights in the study included:

  • Send B2B Communications Before Lunch: The majority of study respondents prefer to receive external information before 1 PM.
  • PowerPoint Continues to Dominate: Respondents prefer that information be communicated through PowerPoint rather than other forms, followed closely by Word documents. Press releases are not favored as a B2B communication format.

The related report, "Best Practices in B2B Communications: How to Effectively Reach Core Decision-Makers," provides key insights and metrics across a variety of communication issues, such as preferred formats for reviewing business-related information from external sources and what types of information participants wanted to receive from external sources.
