“ICE Factor was a key component in our university blitz and TiVo Premiere launch. We have utilized their scooters trailing billboards and branded Segways in the past as both of those innovative tactics were extremely eye-catching! The campaign increased impressions and awareness and even helped us close sales! We could not have done it without them! ”
