Using Ecast’s network of broadband-connected touchscreens located in bars and nightclubs throughout the U.S. it ran a campaign that showed an impressive 8.5 percent click-through rate with more than 4,700 launches of the Jameson mini-site and more than 2,100 touches to Jameson drink suggestions.
The campaign which ran throughout the month of June appeared in bars and nightclubs in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Houston,
