Milestones

2017
  • THE YEAR OF LEAD GENERATION

  • To optimize lead generation efforts, companies continuously seek new tools and techniques – and JSA is happy to be a lead generation partner for our clients. We offer the team, tools, and support you need to make your lead generation campaigns a success! To get an upper hand over competitors, it’s important to know the latest trends and best practices for lead generation. In 2017, lead gen is about relevant user-generated content, quality over quantity, interactive storytelling, improved tracking and analysis, and automation. This year, JSA has also introduced the “Walkout,” care of the cutting-edge tech firm bBooth. The JSA Walkout is a cool, new ‘push to screen’ technology that allows our clients to deliver urgent messages to the screens of employees, partners, prospects, media or investors, without recipients having to open a browser or other program, and without interrupting other applications the recipients may already have open.  For more details, or to schedule a demo, email events@jaymiescotto.com. In 2017, we celebrate our 10th and 11th Telecom Exchange (TEX), and will hold the events in NYC on June 20-21, and in LA on November 13-14.  In January, we announced our acceptance into the Forbes Agency Council, an invitation-only community for executives in successful public relations, media strategy, creative and advertising agencies. We also are honored to welcome our newest clients to our JSA Family: Altice, CENX, DataSite, NetSapiens, Pinnaca, Telamon and United Site Services.

2016
  • THE YEAR OF TECH & TELECOM CONVERGENCE

  • Never before has technology and telecommunications looked so, well, similar. We have reached a critical point where cognitive and cloud computing, big data analytics, enterprise mobility, and of course, 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) are transforming businesses of all types and sizes, worldwide. As we celebrate technology, JSA is committed to exceeding the PR, marketing and event planning needs of the converging telecom and technology industries. JSA’s Telecom Exchange (TEX) event – Where Communications and Technology Meet – held on June 22 this year in NYC is also expanding to Los Angeles in the fall.
