‘Increasing cross channel campaigns, improved customer experience and mobile engagement?…’ OpEd| Having raised over $7m we asked Stephen Upstone, CEO and founder of Loop Me, what 2016 may bring in terms of marketing and communication?!


Marketing in 2016 should focus on finding new solutions to the latest developments in consumer habits.
