By the end of 2012, Celltick increased its subscriber reach by over 250 million to a total of 600 million.

“Mobile is presenting new opportunities for brand engagement and marketers need to consider tactics like mobile coupons and other value-added services to get their brand in the hands of consumers while they are in purchase mode. We view this as part of the strategy of brands to deliver clear value and benefits to consumers,” says Ronen Daniel, CEO of Celltick. “We are proving that we can make mobile marketing work successfully in growth markets. It is our goal to set the standard for new innovative consumer-oriented services in the market.”
