Direct response television agency Respond2 Communications Inc., Portland, OR, on July 19 acquired Marketing & Media Services Inc.
The deal expands Respond2's Cmedia media planning and buying division to include per-inquiry services. This lets clients pay only for leads generated by their TV spots.

The Respond2 divisions include Cmedia, Production West and R2 Entertainment, an entertainment marketing service.
