  • What are creative solutions? Non-standard advertising and branding campaigns that incorporate the best practices of the way we use the internet today to benefit clients and our users.
    The best advertising is great content and great experiences for the end user.
    Remember the adage “I know I’m wasting half of my ad spend, I just don’t know which half.” Especially during this recession, advertisers want to know the results of their campaigns.
    Creative solutions offer that with detailed performance reporting and the ability to tweak campaigns over time.
