This is an area where we are different than most marketing and communication companies, we are creative but we also want measure the effectiveness of our campaigns. In fact, we build analysis into our marketing and communication plans. Our creative work is expected to meet its goals or we want to know why not. We use A/B testing, affinity group analysis, focus groups, social media thematic analysis, and surveys to get to the heart of the matter.
