MetroPCS is currently advertising in over 20 Hispanic markets

Back in July we wrote about MetroPCS expansion into 15 additional markets, now that the pre-paid Wireless service  is owned and operated by T-Mobile.  At the time we speculated who would be MetroPCS Hispanic agency (Conill is T-Mobile). Now we know: It is Dallas based TruMedia. We talked to Yousef Kattan Fernández President/CEO TruMedia and Rodrigo Vallejo, Managing Partner at the agency about their plans for MetroPCS.

We are in over 20 major Hispanic markets and are using TV, Radio, OOH, search and other types of guerrilla tactics and grassroots efforts

Dallas based TruMedia is the Hispanic media planning and buying agency of record for MetroPCS.  "We are focusing on not only retaining our current customer base but developing our base in our expanded footprint across key high dense Hispanic markets,"Rodrigo Vallejo, Managing Partner at TruMedia, tells Portada.  Vallejo adds that "We are using a number of tools to pinpoint and understand our core consumer, including but not limited to segmentation, language,  acculturation and crossing that with media usage tendencies and opportunities to stand out." Regarding TruMedia's current media plan for MetroPCS, Vallejo says that  "We are running a campaign and have been consistent throughout 2013 like 2012.  We are in over 20 major Hispanic markets and we are using TV, Radio, OOH, search and other types of guerrilla tactics and grassroots efforts," Vallejo notes.
