Pinkberry Measures ROI and Performance of Loyalty-Driven Marketing – Award Winning Advice from Anne Schultheis

Recently we spoke with Anne Schultheis, Digital Marketing Manager for Kahala Brands, who submitted an award-winning Pinkberry campaign that was recognized in May by Paytronix with a 2017 Loyaltees Award.
