Erin Fitzpatrick

VP of Marketing


EXPAREL, a subsidiary of Pacira Biosciences, is a cutting-edge, long-acting non-opioid anesthetic that effectively manages postsurgical pain.

Since its introduction in 2012, over 9 million patients have received EXPAREL as a safe and effective alternative to opioids. The product is administered by local injection directly at the surgical site, where it gradually releases bupivacaine over time, providing sustained pain relief without the risks associated with opioids and other narcotics. 

The Challenge

  • The need to stand out amidst rising competition and enhance online presence
  • Difficulty in attracting high-intent traffic that converts to leads
  • Low awareness of non-opioid treatment options and alternatives
  • Barriers to developing executing effective marketing campaigns to attract high-quality leads

Key Results

We increased HCP sign ups by 307% for EXPAREL for the 3rd consecutive year.

Since we began our partnership with EXPAREL, we have seen remarkable growth in both healthcare providers and patients. We have seen a 120% increase in sessions, driven by a 20% decrease in bounce rate, a 28% increase in time spent on the EXPAREL website, and an increase in the number of pages viewed per session.

Our team at NoGood achieved record-breaking results by using a variety of tactics including audience refinement, rapid experimentation, conversion rate optimization, user behavior analysis, and consistent coordination with the EXPAREL team. As a result, the number of sessions at HCP increased by 57%, while the number of patients increased by 48% year-over-year. By creating and delivering content based on deal flow and franchise type, we were able to refine our audience, resulting in a 307% increase in key HCP conversion scores and a 340% increase in key patient conversion scores.
