Interactive Consumer
Marketing Solutions
Market Overview

Consumers worldwide are being bombarded by mass advertising - The barrage of information is greatly reducing the effectiveness of traditional marketing.

Consumers in general tend to ignore advertising messages that do not appeal to their frame of mind and lifestyle as a whole.

Consumers today want the touch, feel, taste and smell element when deciding on which product/service to purchase.

Beyond conventional advertising - brands must connect emotionally with their target market in order to develop a loyal relationship.

'Face-to-face' educational interaction equates to messages from brands being understood, experienced and ultimately purchased by their target market.

About us

By going beyond traditional media, we creatively enhance your consumer promotional activities by adding sassy dimensions such as touch, feel, smell, taste that entice consumers to interact with your brand.

Cause related marketing*

It's important to acknowledge that our simple, daily actions - like what we buy, where we shop, and how we invest - can have a major impact on the quality of our lives and the lives of others.

The answer lies in building trust - the currency of the 21st century. People want more than price and quality. Values associated with the brand, the company reputation behind the brand and the way it's regarded are key elements. Trust is intangible and takes a lot of building up, but once there, people are loath to give up on it.

Brands that lead the way in these areas generate trust among their stakeholders, and they raise the bar for everyone else. Values do matter.

Companies committed to meeting the challenges of the future with an expanded view of corporate responsibility, understand that it is more than just a matter of 'doing the right thing' - it also makes good business sense.
