The hard work our team is doing is being noticed! We were presented with the award for Consumer Integrated Marketing by the Kansas City Direct Marketing Association at their annual AMBIT awards ceremony.

The award was given to us in recognition of our hard work on OGIO’s 2013 holiday campaign. The holiday season is a very important time for the sports and lifestyle ecommerce site, OGIO.com and the team knew just what to do to help them succeed. They implemented a cross-channel holiday campaign and promoted it using the website, blog, social media, and email marketing. As a result of our efforts the company experienced their greatest ecommerce sales month in company history and during Black Friday and Cyber Monday had a 111% increase in sales year-over-year. Their social media efforts also paid off with a 322% increase in Facebook reach, 200% increase in Pinterest followers, and over 7,200 contest entries.
