A US based MNC works with Outsourced CMO to launch their initiative in India




Wiley a US $ 2 billion publishing legend based in the US, has hired OCMO to market Wiley Nxt, a new age initiative that harnesses its massive knowledge creation and distribution strengths to upskill engineering grads for jobs in top IT companies.

This year of the more than 1.5 million young people who will graduate from engineering schools in India less than 1% will be hired by the Top-20 companies in India’s most sought-after IT industry. This is because most graduates are not job-ready when they leave their colleges. With its legendary strengths in knowledge creation and learning solutions, Wiley is unveiling a powerful job-readiness program in India in collaboration with industry and business leaders to addresses this widening skill gap, called WileyNxt.

For marketing this service in a highly competitive business landscape, the USD 2 billion transnational corporation has chosen Outsourced CMO because it wanted seasoned marketing experts for this initiative. Wiley approached OCMO in full knowledge that despite its well-known pedigree in the learning solutions space, its premier Nxt program would be tough to sell in a highly price-sensitive and largely disorganized marketplace spilling over with a gaggle of small players making similar offers at much lower price points.     

John Wiley & Sons, Inc, a New York based MNC sought out OCMO primarily because it wanted not only an experienced CMO but an agile, innovation-driven marketing team around him that could take off fast and work non-stop with a proven sense of ownership. Neither hiring its own full-time resource or leaning on an external agency would have worked and so for the two billion-dollar MNC, OCMO appeared to be not only the right but the obvious choice for marshalling resources and leading its complex marketing battle.

To all of us in OCMO, the trust reposed in our relatively new idea by a global giant is a matter of satisfaction and some pride. More importantly, it is a reason for us to work even harder to delight the companies we work with.

Why is digital marketing important for Medium and Small Enterprises ?

One of the key differentiators of the success of a business is the number of customers that it can reach as more customers mean more sales volume.   One of the technological innovations that helps a business in this direction is digital marketing . It is indeed a boon for MSMEs as it lets you reach your target audience with ease, simplicity and at very low cost. Cost is always a concern for most MSMEs. Why would anyone not want to use the power of the internet with over 3 billion users to further the cause of their own business? But it is a fact that deploying digital marketing for their own benefit seems a herculean task for many MSMEs as they feel that they are not adept nor attuned for the digital world, they also tend to think that they will not reach their target market or they simply do not have adequate information, lack sufficient human resource and tools to manage the digital world. Here is where organisations like Outsourced CMO can help these MSMEs bridge the

Marketing Control Processes to put in place for 2018 !

Models, Systems and Tools to improve your Marketing On behalf of Outsourced CMO ( OCMO), I wish all our readers and well wishers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2018. I believe beginning of year is a good time to Evaluate the Marketing performance of your Enterprise, Startup, Small /Medium sized business in the past year and put Marketing Processes in place to make sure that 2018 is going to be much better than 2017. As the old saying goes ‘If anything can go wrong, it will.’’ It is a well known fact derived from research across companies over the years that most companies have inadequate control procedures. Key aspects of the lack of marketing control processes are: ·        Small companies do poorer job of setting clear objectives and establishing systems to evaluate performance ·        About 1/3 rd of companies have no regular review procedures for understanding problems from their products ·        Almost half of companies fail to compare and an

Why should Startups look at unsuccessful entrepreneurs as business mentors?

Entrepreneurs, particularly startup entrepreneurs are risk takers. We do not conform to the norms of safe play but are always on the lookout to push the boundary of trade and commerce to develop new opportunities and markets sometimes even where none exist. We know that failure is the stepping stone to success and are not deterred by our own failures but press on towards our goal with single minded determination and take the help of people who have got the experience and calibre to help us. So why is it that we do not even think of taking the help of people who have done it and seen it all but were unable to achieve their goal . Yes we are talking about unsuccessful entrepreneurs! Anyone who embarks on the entrepreneurial journey dreams of his startup achieving great heights in the days to come but the unsavoury reality is that 90% of startups in India fail within the first 5 years. They fail not because of want of dedication, effort or enthusiasm but despi
