Maxus acquires media AOR for Getit Infomedia

Maxus has won the media planning duties of askme.com and askmebazaar.com. Getit Infomedia owns a portfolio of brands operating in both online and offline properties, with brands including AskMe, AskMeBazaar, FreeAds and YellowPages across Indian online search, deals, marketplace and classified industry.

After careful evaluation, we decided on Maxus, as it was able to bring in consumer experience beyond traditional communications.”
