What’s Next?

Based on the ‘Universal’ success of the Aero, Bridget Jones’ Baby promotion, at Broderick’s we’ve been busy getting creative and planning what we’ll do to make the next promotion an even more spectacular success.

Here’s a sneak peek into our thoughts….

  • App time:  Our freshly brewed app is already making it easier for consumers to engage with promotions with their favourite brands.
  • Van wraps:  Think big, bold and create full wraps of the latest promotion –a mobile advert that will spread the word.

Much more, but that’s still under wraps!
