Episode 17: Innovative Marketing Strategies from Brands we Love

How Brands Like Koala are Killing their Digital Strategies

Competitor research is a core part of our job at Impressive. We keep our finger on the pulse by seeing what else is out there; what works and what doesn’t. That’s how inspiration is born for our own clients’ digital strategies and how we achieve huge success for them.

If you haven’t got time to dig deep into best practices for your market, leave it to us. We’re taking a look at the campaigns and the ads that achieve what every business wants – more recognition, sales and business growth.

And guess what: your business can have that too!

“I think the Australian market is quite open to playfulness in advertising.” – Nadia
