The Silicon Review
Companies and organizations must re-evaluate their marketing strategy because the old methods have been updated. In a survey conducted by Video advertising firm Bright Roll, it was shown that 72 percent of ad agencies came to the conclusion that online videos perform better than TV. Digital advertising is more than just a trend and in 2014, companies spent almost 10 percent of their revenue on marketing. A digital ad will effectively tell the viewer the story of a brand and this method is more flexible and universal. The digital medium is where the users frequently visit and the channels can be used to influence the buyers through text, video, images, and more.
Marketer’s mission has always been to find the target customers and the internet has made it easier for them to hear the voice of consumers. The concept of monetization in content is not unethical and content creators are fully dedicated to giving an authentic experience of the brand. A partnership between brands and content creators will leverage opportunities in long run. DigiPerformance is a company based in Delhi that helps content creators and brands to monetize their data and also provides services like yield management with audience profile analytics.

Q. What are the pros and cons associated with using new media technologies? Please elaborate.
New media and technologies are helping advertiser to reach their consumers. Consumers and voters are easily engaging with new media and technology and you can rarely find people who do not use any type of new media like WhatsApp, Facebook, and YouTube, etc. It is been a trend, a useful one, and will always be. However people should always know that everything needs limits and so the new media is gradually losing popularity due to lack of right analysis.

Q. Can you tell us about your early education and career influences? What made you choose to work in this industry?
After doing my postgraduate degree in business management, I got an opportunity to launch Airtel’s broadband services in my home town that laidthe foundation of my career in marketing and brand management. My journey as an entrepreneur started after working with big corporates in consumer, telecom and IT/ITES industries for 12 years. As a marketer, I was always keen to innovate new techniques to reach consumers, so my hunger for new ideas helped me to connect well with all media.
Q. As the Founder/CEO, what was the toughest professional challenge you have faced and how did you manage through it?
The first and topmost challenge has been, to manage resources and expectations between customers, employees, and family.

It is possible with commitment and regular dialogue with all stakeholders.

Q. If you had a magic stick, which are the three things you would change in this industry?
A magic stick is good to hear in stories, still if I get an opportunity to change something in the industry then I will make the relationship between client and delivery partner stronger and more understanding.
