Co-Founder of Company Tamada Media Pvt. Ltd
The digital content explosion has made it both easier and harder to build a loyal audience. On one hand, advances in hardware and software continue to simplify capture and production. But on the other hand it becomes harder to capture - and keep - an audience's attention.
Consumers on the digital platform want instant gratification and have a low tolerance for glitches and delays. Users don't want to stare at a preloader, have it stop midstream, or see a grainy, pixilated version of what you took so much care to create. Of course, you don't want this either.
Today, this is where the new media industry stands and with a team of enriched, aggressive individuals, our entrepreneurial venture, Tamada Media is here to help you with the expertise and proven technologies we bring with us. We help you compete effectively with long-established businesses to increase your viewer base and maximize your ROI on both the content and the technology platforms.
