My key strengths include:
- Comfort with steep learning & unlearning cycles demonstrated in my experience across sectors, specifically in unique projects like creating the microfinance channel for Nokia, unique city-level Perceptual Marketing for Citibank, and my 2.5 years entrepreneurship stint with bookbhook.com.
- A strong digital marketing understanding driven by a ‘Doer‘ mindset, having built digital ecosystem understanding to build and grow bookbhook.com. From being a marketer with zero digital marketing experience, I am today an experienced digital entrepreneur with extremely strong level experience across SEO, SEM, ASO, CMS and AWS Cloud platforms.
- Demonstrated ability to build and lead flexible workforce in content creation. Apart from the two founders, bookbhook relied completely on freelancers to build its content, tech and marketing platforms. More than 80% of these 93 freelancers worked for bookbhook for over 2 years, despite being paid almost 50% lower than market rates.
