DCMN India, growth marketing partner for digital first brands, has bagged the media mandate for Truecaller, an integrated caller ID platform. The account was won following a multi-agency pitch. The mandate includes managing the company's TV media duties across different markets and campaign tracking using DCMN's proprietary TV attribution technology, DC Analytics.


The pitch process was held in New Delhi and the account will be handled from DCMN's Gurgaon office. The business will be led by Bindu Balakrishnan, country head, DCMN India.

Truecaller is all set to launch its new TV campaign, which aims to communicate its new features that positions it beyond just a caller ID app. The app integrated video calling, instant messaging and even payments in March last year.

Speaking on same, Manan Shah, director Marketing - India, Truecaller, says, "Over 150 million people use Truecaller in India alone, primarily to know who is calling. Over the last year Truecaller has transformed into a complete communication suite with video calling, a unique instant messaging utility called Flash and integrated UPI based payments and banking features. This is a story worth telling to our users so that they can find all these features in their most-loved app, without the need to use multiple apps."

Speaking on the association Balakrishnan says, "I am very excited about this partnership as I am a Truecaller user myself. The idea of integrating video calling, payment and instant messaging into the app solves multiple purposes for any consumer. While awareness and downloads are already high, the brand is now looking at performance metrics as its main KPI for the upcoming TV campaign. Our strength lies in the experience we have in performance media marketing. DCMN's performance approach includes data-driven media planning and tracking the direct response at a TV spot level with our proprietary TV attribution tool. We are looking at running a highly optimized media campaign for Truecaller."
