Entry credits
Client testimonials and case studies W.K. Kellogg Key to any successful campaign is a joint understanding between client & agency. With Immediate Media, I felt we were constantly on the same page with what we needed from this campaign and could trust their efforts to deliver above and beyond important KPIs. The quality content that IM and WKK created together speaks for itself…but the results help! Content views delivered at 107% vs guaranteed, Display & Takeover Impressions at 114% and Podcast at double the average listens – just to name a few. I consider this campaign a huge success! Neil Rogers, Brand Manager W.K Kellogg Neff Partnership This was a superb, collaborative partnership with IMfood, going above and beyond to ensure that client expectations were not just met but delivered way beyond our expectations, tapping into all key touchpoints to over deliver all key campaign objectives. Working with Immediate was an absolute joy – enthusiasm for the partnership shone through, such a wonderful team – professional, attentive and most of all genuinely lovely people. Sophie Holder, OMD ASDA Working for a client like ASADA is never easy, especially around the busiest trading period of the year, but from start to finish the Immediate team were on hand to deal with any demands the client had - doing so fast and effectively. The campaign performed extremely well and the clients were thrilled with such positive results, great job Elorie, Sabrina and team!” Alistair Hornsby, Spark Foundry Case studies Mars - https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1...
