The Conference

Helping consumer brands navigate their most pressing challenges
12th December
2020

Consumer brands struggle with more than just product market fit: questions around channel mix, marketing funnels, and brand strategy. At Brands Decoded, we aim to bring together some of India's leading consumer brand founders to share lessons in growth-hacking the journey that an early stage consumer business takes to morph into a lifestyle-synonymous consumer brand. While there’s no one-size-fits strategy for all consumer startups, there are common fundamentals that separate success stories from aspiring ones.

  • What wins? Customer experience vs customer delight? 

Workshops

  • How do I optimize return on ad spend in a competitive environment?

Masterclasses

  • Yes, India still shops offline: Learn how to manage and approach distribution and reach to achieve scale
     

  • What is brand? How do I measure brand awareness?
