The challenge:

  • Info/UK had rebranded to become Infogroup/UK and needed to raise awareness of its new name and its expanded capabilities
  • The company wanted to showcase its expertise in integrating email marketing campaigns with social media, blogs and the whole digital marketing armoury

I’ve had a lot of Twitter response from people commenting on how interesting the #tfma twitter feed was to follow, as well as colleagues who didn’t attend the show but loved following the give-aways. It’s a very exciting concept and one that I’m sure will help TFM&A go from strength to strength.
