WittyFeed 2.0: Virality Without Social Media
WittyFeed, an emerging digital content and technology company, was launched in September 2014 by three friends in the small Indian town of Indore. Within four years, the company had become one of the world's largest creators and distributors of content that was followed and circulated online. In the process of scaling up and becoming larger, WittyFeed's founders faced many challenges in areas like technology, distribution, and talent. These internal and external market issues interacted in a constantly changing environment. In January 2018, the founders were in the process of finding strategic solutions that would help their company double its existing number of monthly impressions to achieve 1 billion touchpoints, while becoming independent of its dominant revenue source, Facebook. What strategies could the founders deploy to reach this target? Sanjeev Kotnala is affiliated with MICA. Siddharth Deshmukh is affiliated with MICA. Smita Pranav Kothari is affiliated with MICA.
