His views on how Covid 19 is impacting digital marketing industry


I think this Outbreak of Covid 19 has obviously made long-lasting impact on Businesses and in Indian Economy. But I think with the nationwide lockdown, it is beneficial for digital marketers to push their client for more business and brand awareness. Everyone is stuck on their tablets, mobile phones and laptops at home.


We have closed on new accounts in this outbreak which is very lucky, on the other side the whole strategy changes from selling or pushing from sales to brand awareness and future image building.


Regarding future plans and prospects 


We have our presence pan India with international presence in Dubai, Singapore & London.

We are targeting now Middle Eastern countries like Oman & Kuwait which are economically stronger and trying to make our base in them.


The digital marketing industry is growing on the exponential rate and thus paving the way for many middle level startups and MSME’s . In this advent, TFD also wants to collaborate with the startups and various other segments and create a valuable asset for them.
