KOL Identification and Influence Mapping

Key opinion leaders (KOLs) play an important role in your marketing strategy at every stage of the product lifecycle. As lifecycle stages change, so may the type of KOLs needed. Identification of KOLs should always be based on verified profiles to match your specific marketing objectives.

At Kantar Health, we incorporate peer-to-peer feedback with secondary research to provide a complete view of KOL influence globally, nationally, regionally and locally. Potential influence networks are evaluated based on size (how many peers may be reached) and depth (to what degree each KOL influences peers). Aligning with KOLs who possess reputational expertise and an expansive sphere of influence will maximize your marketing investment.
