Our international client list now includes products, solutions, and service companies, majorly from the US and Canada and it gives me immense pleasure to say that we have retained most of our clients, by delivering value and quality services.”
MISSION AND VISION OF THE COMPANY
The pandemic has made Markivis more agile and has taught it to be adaptive to changes and be ready for any challenges that might fall in the way. The company looks forward to expanding its team size and client base exponentially, but the larger goal is to do more impact-worthy work and make a mark in the B2B marketing industry.
While explaining the team ethos of the company, Amit said, “Learn something new” is the kind of support system and culture we are building within our company. We are nurturing leaders and marketers of tomorrow while doing some great work together. We ensure that our team members are given exposure to various facets of marketing while they specialize in one specific area. So this gives them opportunities to explore other areas of marketing, and work on multiple clients.”
BIGGEST CHALLENGE FACED BY THE COMPANY
As a services start-up, there are two challenges that you face, acquiring talent and acquiring clients. In our case, we have been lucky to work with some of the best customers. For us, talent acquisition is a huge challenge, given we have stringent parameters on hiring. However, we are doing our best to build a great work culture that inspires employees and engages them personally and professionally. Markivis employee-friendly policies like hybrid work culture and meals on the house are some of the initial steps that it is taking to become a workplace of choice.
ADVICE FOR UPCOMING STARTUPS
According to the founder of Markivis, it is no harm in staying rooted in old-school marketing values when you strive to be innovative in your approach. He says, “It’s time you stop thinking inside out and start thinking outside in. What may sound like a solution to you, may not be something your client is looking forward to. As a marketer, you should be open to feedback, adaptive to changes, and receptive to criticism.”
DEFINITION OF SUCCESS
“Success reads differently for everyone. It’s hard to tell if I am successful yet, as I am still learning. But as an entrepreneur, I believe success is when your clients want to stick with you despite having low-cost alternatives”, said Amit while defining success. It has been recognized as Employer branding Company of the year by Silicon India in 2019.
In an increasingly competitive world, Markivis is combining strategic planning and data analysis to fully enable clients with the perfect digital marketing strategies and tools. Markivis is indeed becoming the ideal B2B digital marketing firm, helping businesses to reach new heights.
