Based on original content designed to help drive lead generation, Diffusion’s thought leadership campaign will establish CM.com as credible and original data analysts and experts in customer experience.
James Matthews, UK & Ireland Country Manager at CM.com, commented: “As a key growth area for CM.com, we’re aiming to increase our media presence and brand awareness in the UK and Ireland markets. To take us where we want to be, we want to work with a pro-active, strategic and creative agency, that has understanding of the specific needs of high growth technology businesses. After speaking to various agencies it became clear that Diffusion had strong sector experience, industry knowledge and the ability to show us a clear roadmap moving forward.”
