Sweepstakes & Microsites

A microsite is an effective marketing tool that can be used for a vast number of purposes. They can be deployed quickly, making them perfect for events with a short lifetime on the web, such as seasonal promotions or sweepstakes. FordDirect can help your FDAF or Region design and deploy special microsites for the promotion of sponsorships, events or special marketing campaigns.
