Example of our clients Custom-Branded Content.

Case Study

Client: Madix, Inc.

Objective: Madix is a fixture company looking to showcase their Easel™ SB, a shelving unit capable of video playback, sensory functionality and colorful graphics installation – using a golf concept.

Strategy: After our field research of a national golf store, we discovered avid golfers/shoppers peruse the store to find new products as well as gather information on improving their game. TV screens offered ads after ads of general products, but few presented customized content relevant to each customer.

Results: Madix successfully demonstrated the interactive abilities of their shelves along with a concept that applies to multiple product categories.
