Discover how AXPIRA helped one of their clients in this customer success case: Clinical Research Social Media Campaigns

Clinical Research Social Media Planning & Campaign Mgt.

Social media has become an essential tool for clinical research organizations (CROs) looking to reach and engage with potential participants, researchers, and other stakeholders. But with so many platforms and options available, it can be challenging to create a comprehensive and effective social media plan.

In this case study, we’ll look at how one CRO developed a successful social media strategy to raise awareness of their research studies and recruit participants.

Step 1: Identify the target audience

The first step in creating a social media plan is to identify the target audience. For this CRO, their target audience included:

  • Potential participants in their clinical trials
  • Researchers and other professionals in the field
  • Patients and caregivers interested in learning about new treatments and therapies

By understanding the needs, interests, and behaviors of this audience, the CRO was able to tailor their messaging and outreach efforts.

Step 2: Determine the goals and objectives

With the target audience in mind, the CRO established their goals and objectives for their social media efforts. These included:

  • Raising awareness of their clinical trials and the benefits of participating
  • Recruiting participants for specific studies
  • Providing information and resources to patients and caregivers
  • Building relationships with researchers and other professionals in the field

Step 3: Choose the platforms

Next, the CRO had to decide which social media platforms to use. After analyzing their target audience and goals, they determined that Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn would be the most effective channels for reaching and engaging with their audience.

Step 4: Develop the content and messaging

With their platforms and goals in mind, the CRO developed a content calendar and messaging plan. They created a mix of informative and educational posts about their clinical trials and the benefits of participating, as well as resources and information for patients and caregivers. They also shared news and updates from the research community and used hashtags to increase their reach and engagement.

To ensure that their content was consistent and aligned with their brand, the CRO created guidelines for tone, language, and visual style.

Step 5: Monitor and analyze the results

To track the effectiveness of their social media efforts, the CRO used tools like Facebook Insights and Google Analytics to monitor their reach, engagement, and website traffic. They also used surveys and other methods to gather feedback from their audience.

Based on their analysis, the CRO was able to make adjustments to their content and messaging to increase their reach and engagement. They also used the data to inform future planning and strategy.


By identifying their target audience, setting clear goals and objectives, choosing the right platforms, and developing a well-planned content and messaging strategy, this CRO was able to effectively use social media to raise awareness of their clinical trials and recruit participants. By monitoring and analyzing the results, they were able to make ongoing improvements and achieve their desired outcomes.
