Publicis bags media mandate for ZTE Mobile in India

Team ZTE, powered by Publicis Media and Publicis Communications, has bagged the entire media planning and buying mandate of ZTE Mobile.  ZTE plans to launch a whole range of new products in India.

ZTE Corporation is a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and Systems Company and also one of the world's leading mobile phone manufacturers. The company has made several Android smartphones and tablets.  While the company mainly sells products under the ZTE brand, it is also an original equipment manufacturer (OEM). One of ZTE’s recent mobile launches is the Hawkeye. The smartphone was launched in January 2017.

Mayoori Kango, Managing Director of Performics.Resultrix, part of Publicis Media India, said, “We are pleased to have won the media planning and buying business of ZTE Mobile in India. ZTE is an ambitious, high-tech, result oriented company, operating in a space that is dynamic and exciting. We will further fuel their expansion plans, by helping them forge deep connections with consumers, across all the right touch-points and platforms.  Our strong play in areas such as technology, data, content, and analytics coupled with powerful tools and rich consumer insights led to us bagging this business. In the past few months, as a group, we have made significant investments in machine-learning and artificial intelligence, and this has further enhanced our offering. We will harness all our experience in the telecommunications sector to drive market share for ZTE.”

Sachin Batra, Chief Marketing Officer,  ZTE, said, “We are excited to have found a strategic partner that shares our enthusiasm and vision for the brand and offers the best of both qualitative and quantitative thinking. Team ZTE impressed us early on with their strong, highly differentiated offering and compelling liveROI proposition. They are focused on the entire customer journey, generating real-time strategies and returns on media and marketing investments. Team ZTE comes with extraordinary analytical and media targeting capabilities.  Their passion, vision and dedication made them the right partner for our growth plans. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

India is soon expected to overtake the U.S. as the world’s second-largest smartphone market after China. Smartphone shipments in India grew 18% last year, compared with just 3% globally.
