Starting August, Publicis Romania is the new agency selected by OLX Group Romania to communicate its entire portfolio of brands: OLX, Autovit.ro and Storia.ro. The selection of the agency was made following a 3-months long pitch.
OLX Romania is the leader of the local classifieds market, Autovit.ro is the biggest website for selling and buying cars, while Storia.ro is a complex online platform, premium, specialized in sales and rentals in real estate sector.
Publicis Romania – that had Storia.ro as client previous to winning the entire OLX brands portfolio – will provide creative, strategy, digital and BTL services for all 3 brands reunited under the umbrella of OLX Group.
We got to know OLX since 2017, when we won Storia.ro pitch. After the first meeting, I had a Freddie Mercury moment and told Cosmin Anghel, on the way out: „If in 2-3 years we are not taking it all, it is exactly our fault. I want to work with these people”. We are mainly speaking about a very cool relation with a group who understood objectives can be achieved without compromise in the creative discourse – practically the dream of any creative person. You have a digital leader that knows it can be difficult to hold the crown on the head if you don’t keep coming with something better, crazier, more memorable. Challenge accepted!
Copywriter – Publicis
I believe what resides on OLX’s base of success and at the base of our success during the pitch is the clear order: vision and then objectives. The 2 briefs and the way the solutions were demanded (full campaign and only strategy) made us understand from the start that these people really have know-how when it comes of pitch and we have to win a really cool client. It was simple from there: we know we can think far and OLX Group can get there.
Strategic Planner Publicis
We have all the trust that the integrated, data-driven and courageous approach of Publicis team will help us to better understand our clients, starting each time from their real needs, but to also achieve our ambitious growth objectives and to be a reference in communication.
