The IAB were looking for a research agency who would take a flexible approach to our social media brief, who were open-minded and happy to work through the challenges in partnership with us.  Marketing Sciences certainly delivered on this front, and throughout the project they delivered over and above the scope of the project. The project was a success in terms of starting conversations in the industry and showing brands how they can demonstrate the value of social media in the boardroom. The Marketing Sciences team were hugely passionate about the subject and had a talent for explaining complex stats to a broad range of people.
