October 31, 2011- OTM Partners earned a Silver Davey Award for the creation of a micro website launching “eLearning Center,” an online training system with an ecommerce front end. The Davey Awards are given to the best small firms worldwide that produce "outstanding creative work". The 2011 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms.
OTM also won two Gold MarCom Awards for the work it did to produce a 20-minute highly interactive online training course and catalog – on behalf of a client.
OTM Partners' newest innovation, The Issues Widget, was recently unveiled as part of a larger effort to educate consumers about swipe fees. With research indicating consumers believe convenience store owners were making big profits on gasoline sales, OTM seized an opportunity to leverage a disorienting dilemma to generate transformative learning. By engaging users in a purchase at the fuel pump, The Issues Widget demonstrates that store owners actually make very little on gasoline sales. Armed with this new knowledge, consumers are urged to Take Action Today by completing a letter to their elected official. Applying adult learning theory, instructional design principles and interactive expertise, OTM Partners successfully converted learners into advocates in less than 90 seconds.
