"Experian Marketing Service's ability to implement a cross-channel marketing approach enabled us to launch a successful combined Facebook and email campaign. Getting a clearer picture of who our potential customers were, meant we were able to engage with people more likely to be in a need of our services. Both the Facebook and email campaigns vastly outperformed their respective control groups and we can clearly attribute this to be the benefits of the cross-channel strategy."
