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. Together we can transform your consumers into active co-marketers who will generate awareness via Word of Mouth/Online Buzz, stimulate Social Content, or help develop new products through Co-Creation.
