- paid media execution
- data and analytics, and
- strategic advisory.
“When looking for marketing partners to promote the initial soft launch of our Global Finder Africa platform, we were looking for a team that could provide both strategic guidance and operational know-how to run an awareness and conversion campaign across multiple platforms where our audience spends their time, including LinkedIn, Google and Twitter. Manjaro Marketing and Correlate Digital ticked all of the boxes in that regard,” says Suzdak.
Alex Wright, co-founder of Correlate Digital, says that Correlate is an agency designed for ambitious brands searching for digital growth, and so there was a good fit with the Global Finder Africa team and their requirements.
