InterviewAir THE OXYGEN OF REMOTE RECRUITMENT PROCESSES.
By Albert Einstein-
THE WOMAN WHO FOLLOWS THE CROWD WILL USUALLY GET LOST IN THE CROWD. THE WOMAN WHO WALKS ALONE IS LIKELY TO FIND HERSELF IN PLACES NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN BEFORE.
ne of the biggest debates in the world undoubtedly is, “whether the glass is half full or half empty?” But at the end of the day, it completely depends on the viewer’s perception. This pandemic of Covid-19 is somewhat similar. For some it may come across as an obstacle in their career, whereas for others, it might be a chance at trying something new, or excelling at something they are good at! We are all now quite familiar with the Industry and the Global economy. There are many who have lost their jobs, while at the same time, several industries are facing a lack of workforce because of the huge migration challenges. Now that the unlock process has started across the nation, all the businesses are restarting their processes, in an attempt to get the economy back on track. And this process calls for new amends, change in policies, and also change in the workforce. And as said by the famous Roman poet, Horace, “Carpe Diem!”. The time is ripe for the talented people out there to bag that perfect job; and for the industries to get such people on boardand excel in the right direction. 10 August 2020
The Inception “I could either watch it happen or be a part of it – Elon Musk” It often happens that Candidates who get shortlisted for jobs to diﬀerent cities are not reimbursed their travelling costs, and sometimes they even have to bear the cost of lodging and boarding. Understanding these pain points in the recruitment process, Ridhima Gauba, along with Rohit Taneja co-founded InterviewAir. InterviewAir is an AI based Asynchronous Video Proﬁling technology marketplace, which assists Corporate HRs for Talent Acquisition in India, making sure that job seekers from remote areas (Tier 2/3&4) get an opportunity for employment. So, when the companies register with InterviewAir, after shortlisting the candidates, the interviews are simply done on their Video Platform. This process turns out to be beneﬁcial for both; the recruiters and the candidates, saving both time and cost. Once these major Interviewing process obstacles are eradicated, it only increases the eﬃciency and quality of work. InterviewAir’s cloud-based
interviewing platform is designed as an interface between Job Seekers, Colleges, Vocational Institutions, Corporates, Consultants & Trainers, and it brings together the Candidates looking for jobs to the Corporates without being physically present for the multiple rounds of job interviews (both technical and nontechnical). Taking innovation to the table As much as circa 65%of the workforce in India abides in the remote areas and the jobs they are looking for are located in speciﬁc areas (bigger cities, circa 22 Indian cities), giving the candidates in those speciﬁc areas have an undue advantage, for job hunting. And we can all agree on the fact that interviews are no joke, which already brings nervousness. Add to that a new city, new people and the never-ending bills. The process gets tedious by the day for candidates from tier 2/3&4. Disrupting the interviewing process, the backbone for any job opening, InterviewAir has been successfully able to help candidates from small towns get the right job with less hassle. InterviewAir has connected more than 43,500 job seekers with over 400 brands so far.
The key factors behind their long-standing success Many companies across the globe are into “Video Interviewing”, most of them are invitation based and expensive, along with a negligible number of companies concentrating on “college campus hiring” space and with no one trying to develop a marketplace, all integrated with Job listings, InterviewAir stands out. Using AI to provide interviewing feedbacks, proposing appropriate career paths through counseling, suggesting courses for higher education, and recommending job industries to potential job seekers, are the key parameters assisting InterviewAir in shaping up the next 5 years of change in the human behavioral cycle.
An underserved and unexplored element of the recruitment market is Interviewing. Traditional recruiters conduct in-person interviews and build the database of the candidates. Disrupting this process with their innovative solution, InterviewAir is primarily focused on Video Interviewing and Real Time Video Analytics. And since the company is SaaS based, it has helped them gain high margins due to its scalability. Another factor that adds to their eﬃciency is that rather than being an invitation-based platform, it is a marketplace, which helps create a digital network that can be monetized in countless ways.

Interviewing is nothing but a tussle between a Smart Person & a Wise Person.
“Many job seekers, from Tier 2/3&4 have been recruited at their desired companies through our platform.”
Some other factors that distinguish InterviewAir from others include-

Cover Story Corporates/Companies /SMEs/MSMEs/Start ups: For the talent acquisition team of every industry, interviews are imperative. With InterviewAir’s Video Proﬁling and Real Time Analytics, organizations can select the right candidate. Colleges / Universities: Colleges, from rural areas (60% of 45K in India), who are unable to showcase their brand and their talent pool (because of the geographical constraints) can create a digital video interview repository and share a URL to multiple companies from the comfort of their college cabin. Consultants: Prior to InterviewAir, HR Consultants/Agencies use to supply tons of CVs in the inbox of the Companies for candidate selection (entitling them for commission). Now, consultants can share video interviews of their potential candidates, bringing higher eﬃciency, revenues, and huge savings in Time and Cost. Candidates: Candidates with InterviewAir can now give asynchronous interviews from the comfort of their home without spending any money. Trainers: Trainers can digitally connect to 12 August 2020

The pricing is kept low, keeping in mind it’s a technological platform, bringing a new dimension to the Hiring Process. Also, they have plans to collect direct revenue from job seekers (B2C) by providing value-added services like Interview feedback, proposing appropriate career paths through counseling, suggesting courses for higher education, and recommending job industries to potential job seekers. “By becoming a facilitator, we have positioned ourselves as marketplace technology disruptors.” InterviewAir is a one of its kind company with novel services.

very organization focuses on hiring only the best candidates for their teams. If your organization is still using traditional recruitment processes then you might be holding your growth back. Evaluating and generating results from assessments to acquire appropriate talent that suits your company’s requirement is now more seamless with the use of a cloud-based assessment platform. As all of us know, the cloud is everything! Cloud-based assessment platforms help recruiters getting feedback from the key people about the candidate; however, traditional recruitment processes make it strenuous to get everyone up-to-date on the latest candidates. The recruitment landscape has changed drastically with the adoption of new technologies. TalentBridge Technologies is a leading name in the recruitment industry with comprehensive and unique oﬀerings. The company oﬀers the cloud-based assessment platform- CALIBRAT. CALIBRAT (earlier iHiring) is an advanced, scalable and secure online assessment platform which helps the talent acquisition team to 16 August 2020
evaluate Aptitude, Technical Skills and Written Communication Skills using various evaluation formats. Innovations in assessment solution have greatly reduced the manual eﬀorts in administering and proctoring the screening tests, and also nearly eliminated the possibility of evaluation errors. The security features are an important element of the online assessment platform as it’s extremely critical to protect the integrity of assessment and prevent anyone from compromising the credibility of the screening process. The state of art security features like random candidate snapshot (with Face detection and recognition technology) while candidates are taking assessments eliminates any impersonation and makes the assessment secure particularly in a remote environment without any invigilator or proctor. The assessment platform can track the on-screen activities of candidates while they are taking assessments and the test administrator can monitor all the candidates centrally. The evolved assessment platform also oﬀers features to conduct multi-lingual online assessments. The masterminds behind the longstanding growth of the company
are its founders, Mr. Gauravendra Shukla (CEO) and Mr. Sandip Yuwanati (COO). Under their innovative and solution-oriented vision, TalentBridge Technologies' team is making eﬀorts to transform businesses with quality HR solutions. Solutions that Make Recruitment Processes Easier In recent years’ scalability and security of the platform has become a key driving factor to determine the suitability of the platform. CALIBRAT has been built with emerging technologies. It's a highly scalable and secure platform with intuitive UI/UX. State of the art feature like ‘Proctor’ ensures remote proctoring using a central monitoring console along with Face Detection and Recognition technology to authenticate the identity of the candidate. Such features give complete control to the Assessment Administrator to maintain the integrity of the assessment. Mobility coupled with enterprise-scale functionality (for delivery of assessments) has been a tremendous value-addition to overcome infrastructural and geographical bottlenecks.
Bringing Innovation to the Table As the job market is becoming competitive in India as well as across the world, assessment and interviewing platforms would evolve as a growing segment in HR Technology. This growth will be driven by advanced forms of assessments, machine learning and AI-based assessment solutions, and advanced analytics for a higher level of predictive insights on screening. “TalentBridge aspires to build innovative solutions in measurement and predictive tools using some of the next-generation technologies.” The recruiters not only can do away with hard copies of resumes but can screen resume without actually going through each resume using resume or proﬁle rating tools. Even a simple feature like randomizing the questions and options appearing on the test screen reduces the possibility of any cheating or violation by the candidates. The mobility delivery assessment solutions oﬀer a very eﬀective mechanism to conduct assessments overcoming infrastructure bottlenecks. With the proliferation of Tablets and smartphones well supported by internet infrastructure, online video interviews are becoming convenient and cost-eﬀective modes to conduct personal discussions. The assessment reporting and analytics provide tremendous ﬂexibility to prune the candidate shortlist considering all possible dimensions of assessment scores and proﬁles.

18 August 2020
Today HR Technology is not only an indispensable dimension to eﬀectively run HR in any company but also is increasingly becoming core to the businesses. HR Technology has been evolving much faster covering every aspect of the HR function including the complete lifecycle of an employee starting from sourcing of an employee till the exit. Numerous cloud-based HR Technology companies are building nextgeneration tools for sourcing, assessments, interviewing, on boarding, L&D, payroll, beneﬁts, productivity tools, and other engagement programs. Recent trends also show the increasing number of HR Technology players investing heavily in AI, Machine Learning, mobility and analytics to reshape the entire Talent Management segment in HR Technology. Though globally HR Technology has become a norm, Indian businesses have been gradual in adoption however in recent years’ adoption has increased at a faster rate which is will lead to signiﬁcant improvement in the eﬃciency of HR-related systems and processes. Given the geographical barriers and
physical as well as technology infrastructural bottlenecks to screen manpower at large scale will only be possible with mobility delivered online assessments platform. The scale and security oﬀered by an online assessment platform have expanded the reach of screening process to remote locations well supplemented by the improvement in internet infrastructure as well as an increase in mobile/computing device proliferation. The online assessment platform is a great enabler in overall talent acquisition and talent management activities for employers’ thereby increasing reach and scale which in turn enables employable talent pool employment opportunities.
Increased mobile and social mediabased technologies using AI are increasingly oﬀering eﬃcient solutions. The proliferation of social media is making organizations to look beyond the traditional sourcing methods at the same time their social media presence has also become an extension of their corporate brand. The technologies which are likely to redeﬁne the landscape of this space include Machine Learning, speech recognition, NLP, AI, and written content analysis.
The online assessment platforms have enabled organizations to conduct customizable and autoproctored online assessments seamlessly which not only have organized the hiring process but also reduced time, eﬀort and cost in screening substantially. The online assessment platforms are deﬁnitely the way to future not only in terms of the sophistication and ease of conducting the screening but also evolving the evaluation methodologies.

In te rn et THE HIGHWAY TO THE UTILITY OF TECHNOLOGY AS A WHOLE
20 August 2020
According to a survey conducted by IPSOS in various countries around the world through the Statista platform, most people around the world say that without the Internet, they would not be able to think of a single concept of the world. According to the Internet World Statistics Organization, out of a total population of 7.8 billion, 4.6 billion people use the Internet today. From 1% in 1995, the number of Internet subscribers increased by 1267% in the two decades from 2000 to 2020. Along with “food, clothing, and shelter”, the Internet also underscores the need for basic human life. This is because of the great advances in Internet-based technology. In 2003, Amazon creator Jeﬀ Bezos
compared the Internet to “the invention of electricity.” And that’s exactly what happened. This is because the invention of electricity was aimed at illuminating only by lighting the bulb, but with the advent of research, innovation, and human-intelligence, various applications of electrical equipment have gradually increased the use of electricity. Something similar happened on the Internet. While competition in the internet world has reached its peak, half the world's population is able to use it. The fact that the major population is deprived of connectivity cannot be denied. One thing is for sure, there is no doubt about the deterioration of personal and social health in the modern world which is advancing with the pure intention of making human life bearable. Of course, it would never be wise to hold all technology responsible for that. A conscious person who uses technology deserves its usefulness and its eﬀect. We are all experiencing a ﬂood of information in the internet age, even in the present, but in the future, it should not be a surprise if the psychic
system needs to be made more capable and strong to keep the human mind and intellect in order with the explosion of meaning/purpose rewarded videoinformation and fake news. Of all the creatures, extraordinary intelligence is the special one. Although the Internet is changing rapidly, it is inevitable to notice the natural diﬀerence between the speed of the machine and the speed of the human psyche and acceptance of the change. When looking forward to the future of the Internet, the ﬁrst thing to do is speed - the speed of the Internet. In May 2020, Australian researchers recorded a record Internet speed of 44.2 terabytes per second. I.e. generally HD. 1000 quality movies are downloaded in microseconds. The Internet is a highway to the utility of technology as a whole. Therefore, for the welfare of the whole world, technologists and governments of all countries have come up with a comprehensive and well-planned, all-encompassing, open-source, and free and open technology strategy based on such a powerful tool.
The Internet is so big, so powerful, and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life. - Andrew Brown
he outbreak of Covid-19 caused a lockdown in the physical world. Public life came to a standstill. Imagine if tomorrow something like this happened in a virtual world? Because of a cyber-war or a similar horriﬁc virus attack, or some technical glitch, the Internet has been shut down for a long time, a few months-years, or forever.

Also, we helped migrant workers who were stranded on the roads to ﬁnd jobs and get them food, shelter
Being a bootstrapped business, initially, it was diﬃcult to achieve growth for us. With limited funds, we had to keep our technology and talent costs in control to make ends meet. But in two and a half years, we managed to break even and since then, growth has skyrocketed 200 percent year-on-year. • What is the reason behind your company’s long-standing success?

According to me, through the use of mobile apps, online apps, and other tools, businesses are making it easier to attract and retain customers and candidates; this completely changed the scenario of businesses in every sector around the globe. • What do you think are the responsibilities of an entrepreneur?

It is the ﬁrst city in India which was built according to the Vaastu Shastra. While constructing this city with magniﬁcent palaces, 7 gates were built to enter it. The city is surrounded by walls from all sides. Where Jaipur is located, there were once six villages. Construction of Jaipur city started in 1727, it took about 4 years to build the major blocks. The capital of Jaipur used to be Amber. When the news of the arrival of the Prince of Wales came in 1876, Maharaja Sawai Mansingh had painted the entire city in pink. Since then, the city has been named Pink City (Pink City). Major buildings here include City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal, Rambagh Palace, and Nahargarh Fort, built in the 18th century.

Android Phones iPhones Might Be More Secure Than
urrently, only two operating systems are running in the smartphone market. The ﬁrst is Apple's iOS and the second Google's Android. People say Android Phones Might Be More Secure than iPhones now. But like the past, iPhone's iOS is still ahead in terms of security. In 2016, a terrorist carried out a shooting incident in California, in which 14 people lost their lives. After the incident, the terrorist's iPhone was handpicked by the US intelligence agency FBI, which the agency had sought help from Apple to unlock, but Apple refused to unlock the iPhone. Apple had said that it would not compromise the privacy of users. 'Android is open and quite ﬂexible as compared to iOS, which gives many beneﬁts to developers and users, but when it comes to the arrival of malware in the phone, Android weakens because of an update. When Apple's update gets released, it is immediately available to the users, while the Android update is not immediately available
to the users, because all the Android mobile manufacturer companies provide a custom user interface (their UI) in their phones.
code of their device, users may accidentally leave openings for cybercriminals. Unlike the iOS operating system, which runs only on Apple-branded products, the Android operating system runs on mobile devices made by many companies. Some companies may oﬀer hardware that is more secure than others. Additionally, the manufacturer of the device may use a custom ROM or base operating system, which installs software that cannot be easily removed or analyzed for malicious purposes.
In such a situation, even after releasing the update by Google, users are not able to get the update quickly. There are a huge number of android phones that have not received new updates. ‘ Android is widely popular across the world and it is the one which users prefer the most. This creates an opportunity for developers to develop more android based apps. This also creates an equal opportunity for malware apps. Compared to the apple app store, it is easier to upload an app on Google play store. The Apple app uploading process is much more secure than the android one. Android owners can edit the source code of their Android devices. It appeals to users who want to make changes to the way they operate their mobile devices. But it can also make Android devices vulnerable to attacks. When editing the source
The talk about which one is better, iOS or Android is never-ending as it is a subjective matter. Many people use android phones as they ﬁnd it easier to use and costfriendly too. While the people who believe quality is vital than the quantity, those prefers the iPhone. We say, whichever phone you use, you need to learn its operation properly and practice the safer ways while making processes like online transactions.

38 August 2020
• Tell us about the company. Human Forte is not just HR Solutions Company but a platform that enables companies from diﬀerent industries to fulﬁll their end to end needs related to Human Resources function. Human Forte was founded with a mission to ensure that every organization that deals with human as an asset gets advice related to the complete achievement of mutual goals. • What were the initial challenges you faced? The HR industry is full of solution providers and making sure that you make a mark for yourself is always a thought-provoking process. • Which was that point that triggered the growth of the company? I think, Human Forte followed a gradual process to get to a point where we are today. Being small, paying attention to the smallest possible client requirements helped us becoming popular amongst our network. The biggest boost to our growth was aﬃrmative referencing. Our clients helped wholeheartedly.
• What is the reason behind your company’s long-standing success? Till date, the only thing that has not changed is the “Quality” of service. HR is a demanding function and you need new ideas and measures to control the stakeholders of the company. At Human Forte, we believe in a lot of research and brainstorming.

Market Research has always been a key decisive factor when it comes to adding/updating/removing a service from the array of oﬀerings. The decision is usually a balance between what our strength vs. what is that market is looking for. Going behind the trend blindly without acquiring expertise is something that has avoided since the inception of the company. • Is there any new addition to the list of products/services? Anything exciting you would like to share?
Keep going because you did not come this far just to come this far.
Pritam Shah, Co-Founder & CBO, Human Forte
Interview with The Enterprise World Well, we are exploring and positively progressing towards a HR Tech idea. This will be a unique solution and one of its kinds which will enable small and medium-size companies to digitalize and transform the employee lifecycle centric areas. We have done extensive exploration and sample collection with the help of industry experts. It is too early to get into details of the same, but we are optimistic that we will be able to make a diﬀerence with a small contribution to the community. • How has the technology transformed traditional way of business? Well, Technology has always been the backbone of our organization and everything that we do, manage, and deliver is fully digitalized. Sometimes there are challenges in how the client wants to receive the deliverables. In today’s Internetsavvy world, each company has its own ways to administer their eﬀorts and it becomes challenging to convince your clients to be on a similar platform to enable smooth handover. Nevertheless, the consumer is a king and we always attempt for the right fusion. • What do you think are the responsibilities of an entrepreneur? Constant innovation plus doing the same stuﬀ diﬀerently are the main responsibilities of an entrepreneur. • Can you please brief us about your professional experience? I had started my career in TRA Research Pvt Ltd where I used to head the ops & strategy team, we used to come up with Most Trusted Brands Reports every year. After associating with Human Forte, things changed, like every 40 August 2020
entrepreneur, I also have faced initial hitches but with full focus & patience, it was a sail through. From just being a recruitment ﬁrm to now being an executive search ﬁrm, taking care of talent engagement, training, and development, CXO Hiring& as well HR Audits it was a long way to go. • What are the key achievements of your entrepreneurial journey? Getting through the start-up market was the key, time on time we got an industry which was booming at one particular year (Fin-Tech, HealthTech, Ed-Tech, Agri-Tech, etc). Working closely with those startups (well-funded or bootstrapped), our team managed to build a dream team for them & always banked on us whenever they wanted to hire a niche proﬁle or plan a way as far as HR is concerned. • How do you look after your employees? What makes your team unique? Being transparent with them is the best way to be with employees. Interacting with them daily, motivating them when they mistake, sharing the real-life experience with them, creates a healthy experience with your employees. • Is there any special experience with your clients you would like to highlight? With every client, we have special experience because that’s how we treat our clients. • According to you, what are the basic factors that businesses in the digital landscape should focus on to get better results? Digitization is not a one-stop journey. A case in point is music,
where the model has shifted from selling tapes and CDs (and then MP3s) to subscription models, like Spotify’s/ Gaana/Apple Music. Basic factors are stay connected through various mediums, enhancing interactions among your clients, candidates & employees is of utmost important plus enabling new business models, such as peerto-peer customer service or product innovations. • One person, who you admire the most? I admire Vijay Shekhar Sharma; Paytm his journey is truly motivation for many. • Whose business story do you ﬁnd the most inspiring? Byju’s – because they have changed the way Indian's used to see education & it has helped a lot for young minds to be focused since childhood, boosting education as a sector. Love their success story of how they captured. • Constant vigilance- a need or a strategy? Please share your views. As an entrepreneur, you have chosen this life, where people will watch you not because you are doing good but when you will fall so that they will de-motivate & break you so as to you will not get up again. I think it’s a need for people out there to criticize you so that you & your products are best. • It’s a rat-race out there. How do you cope with that? Rat-race, simple way to cope up with it is by ignoring it& focusing on your strengths. Stop worrying & start proving yourself time & again that you are meant for this & you will sail through it no matter what.
An innovative initiative by emerging leaders towards the technological revolution.
nnovation is diﬀerent from creativity. Creativity just means thinking new things while innovation means doing new things. The main diﬀerence between creativity and innovation is that creativity is thinking of something new and innovation is the implement of something new. We are in need of a common language for innovation. It needs to be relevant to each of us, it must be current, appropriate, accurate and highly visible throughout the entire organization. This article is all about an innovative initiative taken by the emerging leaders to be a part of the change. A disruptive startup: TIGI HR Solution Pvt. Ltd. TIGI is a top-notch recruitment consultancy in all over India. It was initiated in October 2016 by Dax Bamania and Kashyap Dave. The company works with the mission to create maximum employment and leaders in society. TIGI HR (Startup) got awarded by the top leaders of India and recognised as the Most Trusted & Most Preferred Recruitment Company in India by Business Connect and VyaparJagat. TIGI HR is working with the foundation of 3D’s - i.e. Decent, Dynamic and Dedicated. Automation and Technology have been rapidly shifting the dynamic in every sector, and HR is no
42 August 2020
exception. TIGI HR always stay ahead in this game because they have a constant eye on the latest trends and what tools are available for HR professionals. As being a disruptive startup they work with highly futuristic technology and they believe in the change by preliminary understanding the demand. Now let’s take a look at some emerging leaders who played a vital role in building this ﬁrm. ♦ Dax Bamania - Founder and C.E.O. of TIGI HR Solution Pvt. Ltd. Dax Bamania is not from any IIT, IIM or NIT but yet he pursues the identical perspective. He has attended workshops across the globe and got trained by renowned and great personalities of the world. He is recognized and nominated with many awards and certiﬁcations as well. Also he is bestselling author of Productivity Promoter book, along with Founder and CEO of TIGI HR Solution Pvt. Ltd., he is also an investor and growth partner for many other businesses. He says that tough times hardly last but tough people do. In addition he is strongly connected with spiritual aspects and as he says that his spiritual life is based on 4S’s as Seva, Sangha, Sadhna and Sadachar which helps him to balance his life in better way by joy of giving.
♦ Kashyap Dave - Co-Founder and Director of TIGI HR Solution Pvt. Ltd. Again Kashyap is also not from any blue-chip institution of India but undoubtedly he has a versatile and empowered mindset which makes him capable in achieving his desired goal. Kashyap Dave has started his journey at the age of 22 and at this age realised that India which is home to more young people than any other country is running out of time to harness the potential of its youth to drive economic growth. Kashyap Dave is highly motivated, focused and visionary personality towards his work for tomorrow. Kashyap Dave and Dax Bamania together make TIGI grown, now TIGI HR has 1000+ potential clients and setting-up the franchisees across PAN India to fulﬁl his vision and mission. 90% of the clients are from IT, AI, Automation and Robotics industry only. A new phase of technology: AI and automation would bring a tech revolution. The rapid development of AI is not only a scientiﬁc breakthrough but also impacts on human society and economy. In between 2011 to 2018 more than $50 billion were
Kashyap Dave | Dax Bamania invested in artiﬁcial intelligencerelated startups. And in the year 2020 alone $62.4 Billion is invested to bring the technological revolution. McKinsey predicted that one-third of U.S. workers could be automated away by 2030 and that between 400 million and 800 million people globally could lose jobs to automation, but now the need will increase for intelligent, creative and technical people who can create and align with technological revolution. Successful entrepreneurs know how to follow the most signiﬁcant trends in the scope of their businesses. Some people create trends, and there are the people who understand the trends. As being a very ﬂexible company TIGI HR has also taken part in this revolution. They are going to undertake an automatic calling system which will communicate with their prospects and understand their requirements and later will send the data to the team to get it fulﬁlled. Chat bots and automatic 44 August 2020
lead nurture will soon be essential tools for the ﬁrm. Inconveniences due to the revolution: • The technological revolution will lead to destroying human jobs. • It would not become aﬀordable(price factor) for each and every one. • There would be a lack of accountability as humans are being replaced. • There has always been much furore about safety issues associated with Artiﬁcial Intelligence. • Artiﬁcial Intelligence algorithm involves analyzing the humongous amount of data that require an immense amount of computational power. • The number of educated unemployed persons will increase. Is it mandatory to change with the trend? Yes, change is inevitable but
sometimes man ﬁnds it diﬃcult to accept it at once. But to connect with the people’s need every enterprise must need to apply innovatory approaches as TIGI did. Some of them are facing challenges because they have no clear beneﬁts of the technology and hence they got kicked out of the business. There will be a question of survival if there is lack of ﬂexibility in decision making. Thus, acceptance of automation will take your enterprise to the next height. How to motivate early and quick technology adoption? • Welcome new thoughts and continue open discussions. • Build new routines. • Group endorsement. • Learn, analyse and apply. • Try new tools and techniques. • Connect to the demand of the market. • Don’t complicate it, keep it simple.

A Proper Marketing Strategy The only way for the growth of startup
oday, it is very easy to start a business by spending money, but it is diďŹƒcult to attract people towards you. Marketing and promotion are the things through which you can make your products and services accessible to people and inform people about it. Although there are many ways of marketing available, you need to choose the right one by looking at the size and type of your business. And to a major extent, your marketing method also depends on your budget and your product or service. Mainly marketing is the way through which people are familiar with your business to fulďŹ ll their
needs and desires. There are many such examples around us, in which people have a very good business plan, but due to not getting the right marketing, they cannot reach the people and fail. In order to make your business successful, it is necessary that you come out of your scope and reach your thinking to people and create a customer base for yourself. Advertising, selling, and promotion is a part of marketing, but marketing is not limited, it is related to many more. When you launch your product or service, you have to take care of 6 main things, these are known as 6P of marketing.
Product: By product we mean here the item or service that you provide to your customers. When choosing a service as your business, you do not need to worry about features like its packaging and labeling, but for this, you have to take special care of branding and quality. If you want to make a product accessible to your customers, then you will need to take care of its packaging, labeling, branding, and quality. Apart from this, you also have to take great care of your product safety. Price: Price is the price of any goods or services that the customer oďŹ€ers in exchange for the goods or services. While deciding the price
of any of your goods or services, you have to take care of other competitors available in the market. But if your product is the best and unique, then you can earn a good proﬁt in your mind. The price of cars like Audi and Mercedes is much higher than other cars available in the market. But it does not matter to them, because their target market is diﬀerent. But if you are launching a new product, then you have to keep the market in mind. Place: Place is where your customers buy your product or service. It also includes all channels of marketing. Marking includes the following channels. Promotion: Promotion is the most important part of marketing; with the help of this you convey your product or service to the customers. Nowadays we have many promotion methods like website, social media, blogging, e-newsletter, networking, pamphlet, TV, radio, print advertising, word of mouth advertising, loyalty and reward program, cold calling, etc. By using these methods, you can get your business better identiﬁed. People: Hereby People it means your supplier, distributor, wholesaler, stack holder, and your employees, not your customers. All
48 August 2020
these people are a part of your team in your business and everyone has an equal share in the success of your business.
and services, they also promote it and help in spreading your business.
Process: Customer service and marketing processes are a very important part of your business success. This includes sending information to the customer on time, collecting feedback from your customer, and regular analysis of sales and ﬁnancial reports. If anything of these goes wrong then both your market and business are aﬀected.
In Internet Marketing, you can use any of the methods of social media, email, blogging, etc. For the promotion of your business, you have to devise a proper Internet marketing strategy. With this, through various methods and techniques, you can also emulate your activity whether it is going in the right direction or not, and whether it is right for your business or not.
Marketing Tips for StartupsCause Marketing: This type of marketing refers to creating some reasons for your customers about your product or service so that they choose your product or service over any other attractive oﬀer. The best example of this is car companies like Audi and Mercedes, whose companies do not use traditional methods of marketing, yet they have a good market available.
With the advent of the Internet, it has become a very eﬀective way of marketing. Now for this kind of marketing, it is absolutely not necessary that you come face to face and do marketing in this manner. Facebook, WhatsApp, etc. have made it even more accessible. For example, if you have a beauty salon and one of your customers asks for some beauty tips, then you can adjust your various products.
Employee Marketing: Many businesses consider their employees as their potential customers and brand ambassadors. Believing in this fact, some people give their employees a discount for their products in the form of beneﬁts. And when the employees are satisﬁed with these products
