Fusion marketing is one of the most effective marketing tactics in the world, mainly because it is mutually beneficial to everyone involved and so it is likely to work for extended periods of time. The concept of fusion marketing involves teaming up with another business in order to refer clients from one to the other. The most well known example of fusion marketing is a McDonald’s Happy Meal where the fast food outlet teams up for a limited period of time with a variety of partners (eg a new children’s film) to offer their food in branded boxes with a toy connected to the film. You can choose a partner for fusion marketing based on location, services, similar or compatible products or any number of other common denominators and IVPAUK can help you to identify and develop a successful Fusion Marketing campaign. contact us on 07743 855872  or email us on ian@ivall.uk ivpauk.co.uk virtual skills @ your service
