Last week we sponsored the SMX & eMetrics summit dedicated to new trends and research into search engine and mobile marketing. It was great to see so many First Rate clients attending, and for the primary event in Melbourne quite an impressive turn out.

In true online marketing trade show style we held a digital competition, showcasing the newest edition to Q Ltd’s product family – Great Promotions if you or your client is looking at hosting a promotion;

1) go digital, it just makes sense for accurate and efficient data capture, and

2) go Great Promotions, it’s robust, interactive and can be used in conjunction with social and viral campaigns.
