Bospar Wins 2017 BIG Public Relations and Marketing Excellence Award for Campaign of the Year

SAN FRANCISCO—April 12, 2017— Today the Business Intelligence Group (BIG) announced that Bospar, the boutique PR firm that puts tech companies on the map, has won the 2017 Public Relations and Marketing Excellence Awards for Campaign of the Year.

Bospar won the award on the strength of its work with cash back shopping site Ebates during the 2016 holiday shopping season. Bospar worked with Ebates to commission third-party research to determine consumer perceptions around holiday gifts and consumer behavior around the holidays. PR leveraged the data to create stories focusing on holiday shopping and developed story lines about the top gifts and top “stressors” of the holidays. The campaign generated more than 190 pieces of coverage, totaling 1.7 billion impressions and an ad equivalency of $26 million. The Bospar team secured coverage in major lifestyle, consumer, tech and personal finance outlets, including Yahoo!, AOL, CNN Money, Business Insider, USA Today, Mashable, TIME, NBC News and CBS News.

“The work we did for Ebates reflects Bospar’s philosophy that PR should be powerful and transformative for our clients,” said Bospar Principal Curtis Sparrer. “Our clients tell us that they don’t want umpteen PowerPoint decks that vogue strategy. They want results that can excite customers, investors and employees. Output matters.”

“Our judges were clear that Bospar deserves recognition for their ability to drive tangible and quantifiable business results through the creative use of communications,” said Maria Jimenez, director of the Business Intelligence Group. “On behalf of our staff and the judging panel we congratulate the entire team for their outstanding performance.”

Other 2017 Public Relations and Marketing Excellence Award winners include AMNHealthcare and IBM. For more information on the 2017 Public Relations and Marketing Excellence awards, visit https://www.bintelligence.com/pr-excellence/.
