My TED story

I heard about TED in 2011 May when TEDxJAIPUR was organizing its very first conference and i then searched what all TED is about, what they do, how they do and I've attended TEDxJaipur'12 Conference and felt very happy and relieved to know that there's a place to share experience of your life whatever it is, people do care about it.
I aspire to apply for a license for TEDx Conference soon and organize the same.

The Danger of Celebrity Endorsements of Brands
hey , KP , sir what i think is that , if such is the case then , brands should take celebs of good social image , and at the same time it makes sense , as in cricket goods should have cricket players as their brand face , it happens when it does not make sense , cricket player endrosing football goods company ..

hmm , RW , sir in that case , i think that there is a need to increase awareness from the brand itself , about their product and quality , rather than paying money for advertisement , so now the product would be cheaper as less money is put into add campaign , and that money is now used to improve quality further , but still there is a point , of how practically , make this less advertised product popular among masses , so you get what i am trying to say ..

definitely thumbs up for you , if the product is high quality , then it will speak for itself , it also does not need advertisement , and it does not matter who is endrosing the brand , as it does not matter anymore but my friend , apple is a too big brand , what about the new brands that no one knows , it definitely needs fame , and has to work a lot , to become a word of mouth , and it is here endrosements by big personality helps ..

ok , i also think the same that your idol can make you buy something once , and if the quality is not up to the mark , you will not definitely not buy it again . i have a point to raise , that there are 2 products , 1 is with good quality and 2 is a litlte less quality but is advertised by your favourite celeb , which one you will buy , if the prices are same ..

hey , GD , i completely agree that big companies are always on the safe side , and to them publicity does not matter , even if they don't advertise , thier products will be sold coz they have earned people's heart and that is why they are big brands and also the celebs personal life does not have any effect on the comapanies sales or image ..

FSN , look sir , its not about me or you , look at the companies point of view , still people are influenced by the stars , so they have to pay them a huge sum , inorder to compensate sales , so what could be other alternates , as in sales should not suffer ..

Rb , but sir you quoted in your second example of lady gaga , that if we put the picture on a box , then fans will buy , no matter it stinks , so actually this example goes against the whole concept of the cost or quality , its is in favour of celebrity endrosements and proves it right for the brands to give them money ..

Super likes , sir , the questions that you have put forward , these are actually the core of the whole idea , means if the people are educated enough and if they think in this regard , there will be no need to have brands or endrosements either and the price of goods will become less on its own ..
