With increasing number of mobile users in India, mobile marketing is gaining momentum. In order to empower the marketing fraternity to meet the new challenges ahead, Brand Portrait Digital has joined hands with ActiveMedia Technology to create a unique and highly targeted communication platform.
The platform can be used by various brands to reach out to the consumers using the short code 3636 through computer or handheld device. The 3636 platform can also be used by companies for lead generation and content and knowledge dissemination, consumer profiling and innovative use of GPRS (General Packet Radio Service).
Brand Portrait Digital plans to create attractive content for consumers, which would be deployed via the ActiveMedia 3636 short code and the portals. The Internet platform as well as the handheld devices would make it easy to distribute content to the global target audiences.
