The campaign

A bold presidential campaign to put Intralinks on the national stage

We gave topical impetus to Intralinks’ proprietary merger and acquisition (M&A) research report around international deal-making. A top enterprise collaboration provider, Intralinks counts McDonalds, MetLife and DuPont among its customers.

Using the emotive US presidential election, we helped craft questions around its sentiment survey and built a narrative around the resulting data – garnering sweeping coverage for the company as the global M&A forecasting authority.

The results


We ensured that Intralinks was at the heart of the national debate about the impact of a new presidency on business and the M&A sector. We crafted research-based storylines to include Intralinks in the news cycle.
