When New York-based ad fraud detection company Forensiq was emerging as a key player in its industry in the spring of 2014, the client approached 5W to help educate the greater advertising and marketing ecosystem about its solutions for fighting online click, conversion and ad fraud. Since partnering with Forensiq, 5W has been tasked with developing and implementing a strategic public relations campaign to position the company as leader in the ad fraud space as well as utilize its in-depth research to draw greater attention to the financial impact ad fraud has for business, both in the United States and internationally.
