Guidance to the readers
In the last two years, the marketing industry has emerged remarkably. The cost of acquiring the right talent and managing resources has become a significant challenge across the marketing industry. Amit’s advice to all the readers is that “if you want to create a mark in this field, you need to understand the business and its changing trends very well. If you don’t understand marketing, I think it won’t be a viable decision to enter this industry”.He further adds, “It is all about the value you add that sets you apart, not just the service you extend. Your USP should be the value you bring to the table. If your customers see you as a mere agency, they will always refrain from reaching out to you”.
