Andrews, president and chief executive officer of ASI, the largest media, marketing and education organization in the ad specialty industry. “They told us they wanted a cleaner, more intuitive digital platform that served all their needs – from advertising to video to managing their accounts – and we delivered. The new site has more images, more stories and greater resources.”

Highlights of the new ASIcentral.com website include: 

  • More content and support materials, including 143 new case studies, news articles, photos and videos produced by the editorial staff of ASI’s award-winning magazines.
  •  
  • Linkable social media tools to share content through ASI’s Facebook, YouTube channel, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.
  •
