How a multifaceted viral campaign can differentiate an organization

A recent public relations campaign Marketing Works led on behalf of Farsite Group was mentioned within the October issue of Columbus CEO Magazine. The article features how the Columbus-based data analytics firm used big data to forecast the 2013 Oscar winners. Throughout Oscar season, different ways to look at the predictions were made and posted onto a dedicated blog. Posts varied from propensity to win based on time, budget, age and even fashion.

Marketing Works then promoted the predictions through a targeted national media and social outreach campaign that wound up in securing coverage from outlets including Forbes and USA Today as well as significant buzz on Twitter.
