Cadline run a series of user conferences and used a site wide MPU on the Designing Buildings Wiki site as part of their campaign to create awareness and to attract potential delegates to the Cadline information and registration page on their new website.
CFA ran the launch campaign for the British Sprinkler Alliance's report 'The impact of automatic sprinklers on building design.' The objectives were to create awareness of the report and encourage people to visit the British Sprinkler Alliance's website and download the report. As part of the campaign the report was broken down into a series of bitesize articles which were published on the Designing Buildings Wiki site and promoted in our featured article section.
The 5 articles have received 755 views in the first six weeks with an average view time of 2 minutes. David Ing of CFA commented 'This looks great. Just shown it to the client and they are delighted.'
