ISTANBUL -- Turkcell (NYSE:TKC, ISE: TCELL), the leading communications and technology company in Turkey is delighted to announce a new mobile marketing service called MobilKod, built by Turkcell and leveraging Microsoft Tag's mobile tagging technology.

With this launch, Turkcell becomes the first mobile operator to extend the value of Microsoft Tag to provide an innovative campaign management service for marketers and advertisers. MobilKod provides a mobile marketing platform for brands and advertisers to reach millions of mobile subscribers in Turkey and beyond.

The MobilKod service (www.mobilkod.com.tr) offers a free service that allows marketers to create Tags.

With MobilKod, marketers can create and measure the effectiveness of campaigns that use Tags to create holistic brand experiences by connecting their products and materials in the physical world to information and interactive content in the digital world.
