ion interactive may be the most underrated marketing tool in existence. If you run an online business, you owe it to yourself to use this tool. ion interactive is the most flexible page builder and A/B testing platform. We operate our e-commerce in a best in class platform (Demandware), but when it comes to quickly launching A/B tests, ion interactive is the place we do all our testing. It's an advanced platform, which is fully responsive and allows us to easily iterate without any developer support. It's a tool any tech-savvy marketer can take advantage of to create complex experiences with conditional logic, dynamic substitutions, cohesive branding, widgets, data flow to your analytical tools or ESP, etc. If there was only one tool I could purchase to grow my business, ion interactive is the one I would choose without blinking.

ion is used by our marketing department to create interactive content for our prospects to engage with us on a more personal level. We want our content to stand out from the crowd and be more engaging than static marketing content.

The marketing department uses Ion new content creation. We use Ion to measure engagement with our content, make our content more dynamic and targeted, and improve the content we offer through A/B testing. It can be tricky to measure how well a piece of content meets our audience's needs, switching from static PDFs to Ion has been very helpful in this respect.

We use ion interactive to supplement our own digital efforts. From creating sales enablement tools to interactive lead generation forms, ion's creatives have given us a lot of insights into client behavior, and generated new leads for our sales team to follow.

We use it within our Research/Content department. We publish original content sourced from our research by way of infographics and interactive whitepapers. It is another way to engage our members and collect more information on them.

Ion is used throughout our company to create, test, and fine-tune landing pages for dozens of clients in different verticals. Everyone uses it in some capacity. The developers focus on building pages, reviewing performance, and implementing change while the media team prefers to use it for reporting to track our performance in paid media campaigns. The largest weakness tends to be the often cumbersome reporting, but we're generally able to pull all the data we need to tell a full story.

My team currently uses ion interactive to create and manage marketing landing pages for a few of our clients in support of their digital marketing campaigns. We are a team of developers who use the off-the-shelf components as well as incorporate custom solutions within ion.

Ion interactive is being used for the creation of interactive content to get more engagement with potential customers. The primary focus at this moment is to create white papers to inform our target group of our product. It is being used by the Marketing department to make sure the target audience will be engaged within the strategy.

Ion is being used to create interactive media for our website, quizzes for the web and informative interactive eBooks to educate potential clients. It provides an easy and fast way to translate ideas in an engaging way. We love how easy it is to build and publish projects in a matter of days with this platform. This is primarily used by the marketing team to create scalable interactive products. You really don't have to worry on whether or not it will work in a specific browser - because it just works!

We use Ion Interactive for all our landing pages. This is mainly used for the marketing department and it helps us create landing page tests and collect data to create informed decisions on what is working and what is not. The Ion Interactive tools and ability to pull in additional data from our UTMs helps us track a potential students path from click to enrollment.

We use ScibbleLive to create interactive content for our digital demand campaigns. We purchased the platform as we thought we would be able to produce the content ourselves, but the platform has proved to be more challenging for the average user. You really need to have training and some design background to build your own content. So we are not as enabled as we had hoped, however the content itself has greatly contributed to our larger content strategy. Being able to support our regional leads with cloning experiences and translating copy has also been huge, as localizing content is a big pain point for us.

ion is being used across multiple business units in our company. A few years ago, I was the only one in the company using it. But as other marketers saw what I was able to do, quickly and inexpensively, they started hopping on board. Now our internal design department has two people devoted to creating with the ion platform. We use it for product selectors, calculators, a sales tool library, trade show lead capture, and dozens of fun social media posts that boost our SEO. It’s been a game changer for us.

Very useful and powerful to create online experiences such as online content, quizzes, surveys and what not. The best part is it does not require programming skills - that saves a lot of time and effort. Training material is very well documented and customer support is very helpful and has a quick turnaround.

ION Interactive was used at a company I worked for about a year ago. It was used to build interactive experiences for a number of different clients. It was utilized by the Creative Marketing department but the experiences were built for company-wide use.

I have used Ion Interactive LiveBall in 3 different companies, all with slightly different implementations. But in the end, LiveBall excels at rapidly creating landing pages with highly dynamic content and flexibility. It is a very unique platform for creating landing pages that honestly I have yet to see another platform that can be used to create content like you can on LiveBall as quickly or easily. So all of the companies that I have worked with used LiveBall to rapidly prototype and deploy landing pages for multiple domains, multiple marketing campaigns, for reporting and analytics of those campaigns, and to keep it all in one spot.

We wanted a platform that would enable us to create bespoke interactive content in-house. While we are new customers to Ion the first round of gamified and interactive content we've crafted has been well received both internally and with our customers.

There's a lot to learn in the platform - the user interface isn't necessarily intuitive, but once you learn the ropes it all starts to come together. I also have to say, support for the Ion side has been top notch since the word go. They are always available and willing to work with us to troubleshoot any problem - from complex data migration to advice on what template would work best for a new concept.

I'm excited to see how much of an impact with can make with Ion going forward.

Currently, our marketing department is using ion interactive to stand up interactive landing pages to support our lead gen campaigns. This is a great and scalable solution for us to link to different kinds of dynamic content we've produced around each campaign and organize it in a way that makes sense to the consumer.

Our organization uses ION to up level static content into interactive experiences that drive users downloads and conversions. We find that our customers appreciate and respond better to content they can interact with. Our company designs these experiences directly on the ION platform and works with ION developers to implement a design.
