How to make apple promotions from the ground up
Apple is now making Apple-branded products available for sale in India, the country’s first country to be officially licensed to produce them.
The news comes as Apple continues to focus on selling products directly to consumers in the country.
India’s government has made it clear that it will only allow products to be made in India that are “produced on the basis of Indian technology, knowledge and production,” and that Apple can do little more than provide some marketing guidance and the product will be available for purchase on its own.
This will help to sell the products directly, not through a distribution network.
“Apple is a global brand with a rich history in the Indian market and is a great partner for the country, especially in terms of innovation and product development,” said Gaurav Pachauri, the head of Apple India.
“We believe that our partnership with India will provide India with the most powerful, scalable platform for innovation and development.”
India is the third-largest smartphone market in the world, with Apple’s iPhone accounting for nearly 90 percent of the global market.
Apple has made the move to open up its supply chain to the Indian marketplace in a bid to better compete with Chinese companies like Huawei, Lenovo and ZTE, which are also expanding their own supply chains.
India also has a history of making innovative products that appeal to a wide range of consumers.
Apple’s iPad launched in 2013, and a series of high-profile iPhones and iPads have been on display in Indian markets.
The company has also developed a line of smartphones that sell for as low as $199.
The new products are likely to be targeted at a broad swath of consumers in India.
The country has also recently opened up its borders to a much wider range of companies and is one of the fastest-growing markets in the Asia-Pacific region.
In 2018, the economy grew by 4.5 percent, up from 2.7 percent in 2017, according to the countrys Bureau of Statistics.
