• Advertising was definitely a marketing strategy which
complemented the unconventional channels of Reliance
Infocomm. The Reliance mobile brand was branded as

exercise with the handset makers.

IndiaMobile was 'Kabhi mobile, kabhi computer'
(Sometimes Mobile, Sometimes Computer).

exercise around the launch of the product. The
public relations gave much leverage to the
advertising and gave rise to a word of mouth
• Secondly Reliance Infocomm utilized every
media vehicle effectively.
• Thirdly, Reliance Infocomm relied on the
passions of India, while framing advertisements.

World in Your Hands
• Another important marketing strategy that Reliance
Infocomm resorted to was the clear differentiation of
the product by relying on data applications in
addition to voice.

of all Reliance phones - the company guaranteed
download speeds of up to 144 kbps, from an
applications suite which has over 120 applications
