Bayer is at Number 2, an increase by 13 points from last year while the three others, GSK, Novo and Roche, are tied at Number 5. Roche dropped by two points while GSK and Novo got higher scores than last year. 


                                                                            "Bayer has been busy polishing, 
and with many detailed improvements 
has worked its way up to the second slot. 
It consists of a huge federation of sites 
and social media channels, 
held together with remarkable skill 
and allowing customers and others 
 to get to the pages they need with little pain. 
It also does a remarkable job 
of presenting itself as an exciting place to work, 
with a mass of engaging features."

It is worth noting that four of those that topped the list are pharmaceutical companies.

According to David Bowen, cofounder of Bowen Craggs, pharma companies exist in an industry where their reputation is not always the best
To counter this, they use their online channels to get to say and focus on the fact that they cure people. 

Aside from the four being pharma companies, it should also be noted that they are all not from the US. This was a common trend that was also observed for the top 30 wherein there were only a few US companies included in the list and placed at the bottom. 

Bowen further discusses the difference between the US and European companies in group level marketing by comparing their models. Whereas European companies are centralized, US companies do not perceive online communications as part of group level marketing. He pointed out that aside from US companies using the internet only to sell, they also do not have a core web team or if they have, it is not really effective. 

Bowen Craggs’ Index of Online Excellence is in its ninth year. The competitors are rated based on all the online aspects of their corporate communications – main website, country sites, social media channels, apps, etc. 
All of these come to play in group level marketing because the company is marketing the entire enterprise, not only their products or services. According to the consultancy group, people will buy a company’s products based on how well they think of it. (Más)
