Barcelona and New Delhi Softonic, the world's largest apps and software catalog, and iCubeswire, a leading affiliate marketing company, today announced a new partnership focusing on digital customer acquisition and advertising solutions for India-based developers, brands and agencies.
The partnership between Softonic and iCubeswire opens the door to businesses looking to drive digital reach and consumer visibility for their products and services through a range of combined media planning, advertising and editorial solutions across Softonic´s Desktop web, Mobile Web and Mobile Apps properties.
Digital investment within India is growing (from $1.6b in 2016 - $1.9b in 2017) and customer acquisition is the primary focus for the majority (58%) of Indian marketers, who report that integrated campaigns result in a moderate to significant increase to their business.
