Real Estate in India; as hot as It was 2 years back, it has taken a huge dip. Real Estate Developers are sitting on unsold inventory resulting in losses worth 100s of Crores. Too many developers, too many projects and high cost of bank lending coupled with exorbitant prices have resulted in this stagnation.
Growth of online media has given opportunities to everyone who aspires to be an entrepreneur. With very little startup capital, entrepreneurs are able to make decent money running their own businesses. To be a successful entrepreneur, you need to find your passion which you can use to sell a product or service and you should have a big enough addressable market who are willing to pay your for it.

This is what the founders of Periscope had to say – “We launched Periscope a week ago and have been overwhelmed (in the best possible way) by the outpouring of excitement for the product. We built Periscope to let people discover the world through someone else’s eyes and in just a matter of days have taken us all around the globe — to nearly every country in the world.”

Facebook is the Holy Grail for a lot of content marketers. No other platform can boast of the sheer volume of people who actively engage on the platform like Facebook can. With so many brands trying to compete for user’s attention on Facebook, it is but natural that things have become more challenging for brands. How can we engage our audience better? How can we get our posts read by many people?
At RankHigher, we have been working with few clients on their Facebook marketing strategies. Recently, one of the posts which we had created and had published for a client did extremely well. Imagine, for a one year old school in Bangalore, a post which gets over 2200 shares, all organically! And the post has reached nearly 200,000 people on Facebook! Isn’t that more than what a one year old brand can aspire for.

Content Marketing is one of the most effective methods for a business to establish itself as an authority in its space. It not only enhances trust and credibility but also helps in converting leads to customers. At Marketing Fundamentals, we have been a big proponent of content marketing and how it adds value to businesses. Great content engages your audience, and helps you connect with them better. Your audience already knows you before they even become your client.
One of the biggest challenges businesses face today, is the ever growing noise of social media. Even if you have something valuable to say, how do you manage to reach your audience? How do you ensure that older businesses, who are early adopters of social media, are not getting all the visibility, even though they may be producing very low quality content?
