Commenting on Consumer Intelligence, the winner in the Outstanding Marketing Campaign category, the chairman of the judges said: “After restructuring its business and upgrading its services to provide customers with insightful information, Consumer Intelligence had to totally reinvent its marketing. Focusing on social media, direct marketing, marketing via its website and press relations, Consumer Intelligence has achieved phenomenal success on a tiny budget. Subscriptions have soared and it received more than 100 pieces of press coverage that have driven vast amounts of new traffic to its website. This campaign has put Consumer Intelligence on the map as a major provider of vital market and consumer behavioural information for financial services companies.”

Commenting on Appster Inc, the winner in the Outstanding Fast Growth Business category, the chairman of the judges said: “Appster Inc must be one of the fastest growing businesses in the world. It was set up by two teenagers with 3,000 Australian dollars in 2011 as a development hub to help entrepreneurs and start ups anywhere in the world turn their ideas into thriving businesses. Currently Appster has a team of 350 people in Australia, its home country, the USA and India; and a turnover of millions, which is set to soar in the next few years. Not only this, Appster has won a host of awards and become a global phenomenon.”
