Reebok, the NHL, and the Indianapolis Symphony are among the organizations that have embraced innovation and creativity to connect with their audiences.
Reebok, the National Hockey League, and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra are among the winners of ClickZ Connected Marketing Awards 2010. The awards recognize brands and organizations that have embraced innovation and creativity to connect with their audiences - and drive results.
"Much conventional wisdom in marketing is being reconsidered. The key concept ushering in these changes is the notion of connectivity. Connected marketing is more about the change in consumer behavior than it is in the technology available to marketers," said Mike Grehan, VP and global content director for ClickZ, Search Engine Watch, and SES.
Winners were announced today as part of Connected Marketing Week, a week-long festival of digital marketing events, now taking place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Entries were judged on four criteria - creativity, innovation, interactivity, and business outcomes.
The editorial teams of Incisive Media’s ClickZ and Search Engine Watch and the online publications' Experts columnists judged the awards. ClickZ's Caitlin Rossman coordinated the effort.
