Microsoft Selects 352 Media Group as Preferred Vendor

352 Media Group is among 16 digital marketing agencies selected as a preferred member of the Microsoft Interactive Media Vendors Program. The selected agencies, affectionately dubbed the ‘Sweet Sixteen,’ were chosen from a field of over 650 existing Microsoft vendors.

352 Media was awarded Microsoft Vendor Partner (MSVP) status after a rigorous selection process spanning the past ten months. The program officially kicked off with an orientation on Microsoft’s Redmond, WA campus on June 6th. All vendors were officially welcomed and educated on Microsoft’s existing marketing efforts and emerging technology roadmap.

‘Being selected after such a meticulous search effort by a company as thorough as Microsoft is a true testament to the talent of our staff and our overall quality of work,’ Said Peter VanRysdam, 352 Media’s Vice President of Marketing who attended to meeting in Redmond. ‘Microsoft made a point of making us feel like part of the family; much more of a partnership than a typical vendor/client relationship.’

The sixteen agencies selected will work with marketing groups across Microsoft to develop interactive marketing projects.
