Shopper engagement is a tough job for marketers and their agencies. It’s about getting a consumer to make that leap of faith to rent a hotel room, carry their product from the retail aisles to the checkout line, or favor one soda over another at a restaurant. Effie Worldwide has awarded the best of them and the campaigns that put them over the top.
