Catering to the needs of a challenging market-place and the ever-growing demands for effective and creative solutions for BTL, Rural Marketing Communications and Events, Triton Communications has launched ZtoA Marketing Solutions under the leadership of Preeti Sawarkar as its CEO.
Commenting on the launch, Sawarkar said, “The market needs innovation. Traditional practices find no place in challenging times like these. As the name suggest, ZtoA is a reverse way of solutions thinking. It is a bottom up approach of thinking, moving away from conventional mediums to innovation. The key services provided by ZtoA will include Activations, Rural Communications, Retail and Events.”
She further said, “ZtoA believes that the next wave of business will be in the booming rural markets and towns where the purchasing capacity is increasing exponentially. The opportunities are vast, but Brands will need to understand the psyche behind the purchasing behavior of consumers in this segment. The Government is already playing a great role in encouraging the Agricultural & Rural Sector, and has introduced variety of policies for Rural Development. The Digital India Movement is also having an impact in rural markets. This, clubbed with healthy media penetration, has resulted in the rural market growing at almost 10-12 per cent p.a. This calls for an innovative approach to penetrate the rural markets through effective and strategic marketing solutions. At ZtoA, we believe we are fully equipped to do so.”
