How SPI Pharma used Sopro to ensure they had enough demand to grow their sales team

Before building out their sales team, SPI Pharma needed to make sure they had a consistent and plentiful flow of leads. The Sopro campaign launched as the sales team finished their training, delivering a reliable flow of leads for the new team to convert.

Company description

For over 75 years, we have supplied the pharmaceutical industry with highly engineered products and innovative solutions that improve the formulation and delivery of drug products to meet patient needs. Our functional excipients and active ingredients meet the highest-quality standards possible and can offer customised, cost-effective options for many applications.


SPI Pharma sell the ingredients, recipe and production instructions but not the finished product. The finished product is oral pharma products. For this campaign, we will focus on two of these products- Oral dispersible tech and soft gel capsules.


The Objective of the campaign is to identify and engage senior stakeholders within the SPI market, introduce the SPI brand and proposition and invite on a discovery call.
