We have recently announced our first clients in two new sectors – leisure travel and video games – both with leading players. What’s attractive about this breadth is that it proves TotalSocial is not just a platform for a handful of brands in a limited set of categories, but has a large Total Addressable Market to pursue,” said Ed Keller, CEO. “Further, our cost cutting initiatives have put us on a path to cash flow breakeven that will make us a stronger company.”
