Pune-based not-for-profit 111 Startups event to guide entrepreneurs about role of digital marketing in startups

Some entrepreneurs believe that marketing their business on social media is as simple as interacting with friends and family on social networking sites. This is where the car turns in the wrong direction.


Finance and digital marketing are two of the most important aspects for startups.  Small and large businesses can use social media to build credibility, build relationships, create a brand perception, and to collect data in this era of fierce competition. But, most of the entrepreneurs fail to achieve all this as they believe digital marketing is all about sharing content related to their startup.

Everyone loves sharing opinion and interacting with others while in the pub. However, one cannot just begin his/her dialogue while standing at the bar’s front door.  You need to enter the bar, collect your drink from the counter, join a relevant group, and then start sharing opinion related to the group’s ongoing discussion.  Same is the case with marketing on social networking sites. It’s not just about creating your brand’s Facebook page, Twitter handle and sharing startup related content. While managing your startup’s digital marketing campaign, you need to approach the right set of individuals who would show interest in your products or services.

“Survey conducted by research firm Schneider Associates suggests that customers check product related information on six different sources before opting for new product or service. Facebook and Twitter are preferred by millennials, seniors prefer online magazines while GenZ prefers reading reviews written by existing customers of the concerned brand. Such fractured media consumption makes it necessary to keep nimble approach in marketing. Professional guidance is the need of the hour,”–says Vikrant Bhujbalrao, Head, 111 Startups. Under this initiative, the team has organized an event on 30th April 2016, and it will focus on the role of digital marketing in managing startups.

Shoeb Ahmad will be the speaker for this event. He has more than 12 years of rich experience in digital marketing and other aspects.  Shoeb has won ‘Best Digital Marketing Professional 2014′ award from World Marketing Congress & CMO Council.

If you are an entrepreneur in Pune and wish to understand aspects of digital marketing and its tools from true professional, you should definitely attend this event. There is no entry fee for the same.
