In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the advertisement program, a market research activity was also initiated. The Market Research was conducted by targeting a focus group of women in the age group of 50 to 64 years. Moreover, a methodology was also devised to contact the target group of the advertisements conducted. The participants were contacted through telephone on an individual basis. Herein, a set of qualifying criteria was also decided upon. Firstly, it was found out whether the individual was a&nbsp.woman or not within the age group of 50 to 64 years. Secondly, the inference was made on whether such an individual pays a visit to primary doctors for medical consultation or not.
