Unlock the power of your consumers

Consumers want to do more than just buy your products. Collaborative Marketing lets you market with your consumers, not at them – driving insights, trial, awareness and sales.

We manage online communities of over 5.5m registered members across Europe and spark meaningful conversations between brands and their customers.
