The Young, Creative, Inspiring Women Entrepreneurs Renovating the Landscape of Content Creation
Brimming with innovation and creativity, Aaliya Amrin, Eman Batliwalla, and Danisha Kohli are unique in the landscape of digital with their shape-shifting work in the field of content creation. They are the ‘creative masterminds’ of By The Gram LLP (BTG), a content studio and the go-to partner for content needs of clients ranging from fashion, beauty, lifestyle & film globally.
Incorporated on 23 January 2021, BTG is a strategy-driven company that lives at the intersection of creativity & tech. The core motivation behind the inception of the company was to invent a new-age solution for new-age requirements, different from traditional ad agencies or marketing firms. Besides, the focus areas also include adding substance to a brand’s identity, doing meaningful story-telling, and creating strategies for brands that straddle purpose & profit.
“In a world where your voice is your command, facial recognition is your ID, finances are at your fingerprint, and you tell your lives with emojis – why should your content be any different? BTG is here to inspire and enable you. We’re unclassified in a cluttered agency landscape. We build interfaces where humans can touch technology”, shared one of the leading women of the firm.
EXCLUSIVE SERVICE PORTFOLIO
BTG designs smarter ways to use simple things and even simpler ways to use smart things. As far as the dream is concerned, it is to create the narrative, one that talks back. As a brand, you don’t have to choose between purpose and profit.
Here is a list of the major services to support you to do both:
- Content Development
- Visual Direction
- Social Media Management
THE INSPIRING JOURNEY
By The Gram LLP is a company helmed by three female co-founders. What started as a tiny startup in their living rooms in Mumbai very soon expanded across Hong Kong, New York, London, Dubai, and so on. They now service clients globally having a back-end team of thirty full-time employees. Their beginning collided with the rise of streaming platforms in India, but today sees a different picture. BTG is the go-to partner for clients like Netflix India, Dharma, Tiger Baby, etc.
Moreover, the BTG team got the opportunity to work with some of the best clients, a lot of whom happens to be women creatives. They get to learn and be inspired by them every single day.
EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF BTG
The largest impact has been the shift the team has created in a market like Mumbai specifically. They reinvented the wheel of content, the way it’s produced, and the way it’s being served. We have begun to witness short-form content production companies everywhere, whereas that wasn’t the case three years ago. Clients are now more aware than ever and they demand meaningful short-form content, produced sustainably without long billable ad agency hours, and receive custom-fit solutions.
‘SMART WORKING’ IS THE KEY
The biggest audience today; Gen-Z was born surrounded by technology, which makes them and social media marketing a natural fit for each other. BTG is a strategydriven company that lives at the intersection of creativity & technology. And the technology part is ‘working smart’. This has been the key to a lot of their success.
In a largely remote world, the trio has learned about technology completely to keep them connected and collaborative, especially since a large part of their work is so creative. They are also a lateral structure with very little hierarchy which they do believe has been working for them.
A FOCUSED AND ENTHUSIASTIC WORKFORCE
The work BTG does often fuels them in ways that they never expected. Each project is a brainchild that they see through to the finish line. There’s immense gratification to be gained at the end of the process which they do attribute to having a focused and enthusiastic team.
Ever-evolving, and consistently reinventing the wheel.
