World's Largest FMCG Company Added To List Of Leading New Advertisers Including GlaxoSmithKline and Parle Biscuits
MUMBAI, India and TORONTO, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - QYOU Media Inc. (TSXV: QYOU) (OTCQB: QYOUF) has announced that The Q India, the company's Hindi language youth oriented channel available in over 100 million TV households and to over 612 million OTT and mobile users in India, has added Nestlé, the world's largest Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) company, to its growing list of blue chip advertisers who have commenced ad campaigns on The Q over the last fifteen weeks. Other new advertisers include top ten pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline and Parle Biscuits, the world's largest biscuit producer. In total, The Q has added fifteen new major brands as advertisers on the channel since April 2021 as it climbed to an average Gross Rating Points (GRP) level of 45 GRP during this same time frame, making it the fastest growing TV channel in India.
New brands that have begun to advertise on The Q during this fifteen week span include (alphabetically) Abbot, Amazon, Bajaj Consumer, Britannia, Cipla, Himalaya Drug Company, Galactus (Mobile Premier League), GlaxoSmithKline, Nestlé, Unilever, P&G, Parle Biscuits, Pepsi, Reckitt Benckiser and Wipro. With the addition of Nestlé, The Q channel now boasts advertisement agreements with the top four FMCG companies in the world.
Nestlé first entered the India market in 1912 and began doing business as Nestlé India in 1959. The Company's activities in India have facilitated direct and indirect employment and provides livelihood to about one million people including farmers, suppliers of packaging materials, services and other goods. Included in the many company brands now sold in India re Nescafe, Maggi, Milkybar, Kit Kat, Bar-One, Milkmaid and Nestea.
The remarkable addition of fifteen new major ad partners in less than four months continues to be driven by the massive growth of viewership and ratings achieved by The Q which has now recorded an average of over 45 GRP for fifteen consecutive weeks (as measured by BARC...the Nielsen of India). This has resulted in The Q sharing company with many of the largest mainstream channels in India owned by media giants including Star (Disney), Sony, Viacom and Zee. The company has previously stated the direct relationship between BARC ratings results and increased ad sales.
Curt Marvis, QYOU Media CEO and Co-Founder added, "Adding Nestle, GSK and Parle continues to demonstrate our strong momentum with ad sales and revenue growth. Led by our CEO, Simran Hoon, we've bolstered our team with top ad sales talent and are committed to driving towards long term agreements now that we have proven the sustained popularity of the channel."
