Spoke at an event last month, just before winning the Content Marketer of the Year award (Woohoo!) About all things content – mobile strategy, breakthrough growth hacks, trends about WhatsApp, Instagram and the all mighty Facebook. I’ve added the video below. Q&A in comments :)
One hour of crazy typing, awesome questions and a vibrant group. Prateek Shah organised a Video Marketing chat on Facebook recently, and the rapid fire questions made for a very energetic afternoon :) The event link is now an archive of sorts with questions and answers about video marketing. From review of a video, to best practices to ROI, we covered it all. Check it out

Few weeks back I met Rajeev Suri, who’s super energetic and vibrantly spirited about digital marketing. If you want to be in the know of the latest insights from the industry, hit subscribe on his video blog on YouTube, he interviews the game changers in the Indian digital landscape and provides a lot of learnings and insights.
It was an honour to be interviewed by him, and talk about something which has shaped my journey over last few years: Viral Videos. In quick 10 minutes, we discussed the best practices behind making viral videos, from coming up with topics to distribution. One memory from my visit to Mumbai, neatly captured in a video :)
Replace your obsession with the video going viral with your focus on the content and story you are going to tell. And for God’s sake, don’t make an ad. Social media is about activism. People are trying to make a change, and impact. focus on that.
Use the right medium to propagate. sharing or share ability is in the DNA of Facebook, not so much on youtube, which is traditionally the source of video distribution. And don’t link a youtube video on Facebook, upload directly on Facebook.
Happy Content Marketing :)
