Hanmer & Partners Communications – one of the leading public relations firms, has bagged the PR duties of BharatMatrimony.com. BharatMatrimony.com had called for a PR pitch nearly a month ago featuring all the top end PR agencies. Hanmer & Partners was among the national public relations firms that pitched for the account.

S Suresh, Business Head, BharatMatrimony.com said, “We have zeroed in on Hanmer and Partner Chennai, after a multi-agency pitch which featured the best of the PR agencies. Hanmer and Partner was the right choice because they matched our expectations in terms of quality PR, and they had a sound comprehension of our business and PR strategy,” he said.

The company is also present abroad to cater to the NRI market.

However, on winning the account, Sunil Gautam, Managing Director, Hanmer & Partners Communications, said, “The key to winning the pitch was in the approach. We did not look at Bharat Matrimony.com as a portal or a dotcom company, but as a click, brick and mortar company owing to its strong offline presence providing complete marriage solutions under one roof. Our communications strategy was presented based on careful analysis of the PR initiatives in the past and with focus on clarity in terms of positioning. Greater impetuous was also given to their regional brands to ensure that the local relevance factor is leveraged to the maximum.
