Advertisers now have to deal with unprecedented consumer behaviours due to increased access to the internet and its overwhelming pool of options. This is fundamentally where the big chasm between advertisers and consumers exist. This is also where, we as United Stations see ourselves closing the gap in the market..."

Agile for agencies - is there such a thing?

"Omni-channel marketing" is the latest buzzword. Just look at job ads being posted "searching for omni-cannel marketing specialist" or looking for "superior cross-channel engagement officer".
