OUR DATA AND ANALYTICS TOOLS ARE DISRUPTING AN ENTIRE INDUSTRY.

WE LAUNCED MARILYN TWO YEARS AGO because we saw the pressure our clients were under – it’s no longer about what you think but what you know. We built a platform that made our clients’ jobs easier. That gave us access to better data faster. That allowed us to collectively make better decisions. That answered the questions that really matter.

WHAT'S THE REAL OPPORTUNITY?  Who and where do I target? How do I get more shoppers to buy? How do I ensure I have the right message with the right medium? How do I activate the plan effectively and efficiently? How do I know that it worked? Those are the critical questions to not only answer but get right.
