Provided by Rise Communications
A Case Study - AOL & Rise Communications regain consumer confidence through the creation of "The Discuss" campaign.

What was the Solution?

Rise identified that the key business drivers in the ISP sector were as follows; Personal recommendation is crucial. Target technology advocates not the mass market and finally information rich, interactive digital touchpoints were vital. Any campaign needed to address these issues to successfully drive confidence in the brand. Working with agencies including Grey, Branded, Shine and Vizeum, the DISCUSS campaign was created to actively re-engage these lost advocates across all touch points.
