    5. Gregg Witt Premise Immersive Marketing The space is crowded with agencies and a lot of players look the same. They all execute youth marketing campaigns, claiming to know everything about youth trends and emerging platforms like social media app's, gaming and mobile. Some agencies are known for their extravagant road shows, while others focus on select niche markets. Many have strong technical skills, but very few involve their client's target consumer demographic from concept to completion, which ensures the approach is relevant with youth lifestyles and spreads authentic word of mouth. Premise follows this unique approach, and this immersive youth participation is built into their agency model at every phase. They call it targeting from the inside out.

    10. Josh Levine Rebel Industries Rebel Industries is a unique consortium of market-savvy, culturally-driven, connected individuals who reflect a fundamental shift in the way brands connect with consumers. Rebel develops and implements marketing programs that enable brands to contribute to — and become part of niche communities and consumer conversations. This new way favors action over “big ideas,” listening over getting the message out. Why? Because today consumers are in charge. They’re in charge of their own experiences, of the way they interact with brands, or choose to tune them out. The companies who accept that reality and adapt their thinking are the ones who are winning. Too many brands have been asleep at the wheel and the world has changed around them. Rebel has made it their job to wake them up. Agency Click Here to View Webinar YouthResearchPartners.com 1010Youth Finalist
