While working with different media companies such as Indian Television Dot Com & NDTV Media, Harish and Deepakwere exposed to the content side of the business. Back then, content marketing was a new concept but soon started getting recognized as a form of marketing. This was the nascent period where there were no content specialists in this space. Taking this as an opportunity to build their own brand, the versatile leaders established OneNative Advertising. Both, Harish and Deepak believe that the early exposure to the media space in their careers, more specifically to content & digital media left a big imprint on them.

The Creative Leaders Overcoming Challenges with Willpower and Commitment
Harish and Deepak understand that running a business is not a child’s play. There are issues that leaders always have to face, but with the right tact and skillsets, they can route a strong course and come out on top. For the Co-founding duo, they have categorized their challenges into two areas: internal and external. In the initial days, their biggest internal challenge was having the right team because native advertising space itself was very new in India and they did not have access to the trained workforce. Therefore, the Co-founders developed their own team from scratch and trained them. As a result, they now have some of the brightest minds in the industry as part of their team. Externally, when they started out, it was quite difficult for them to educate their clients on this relatively new medium of content marketing & native ads. But, through years, they have conquered these challenges by sheer will-power and unwavering commitment. Currently, they are reshaping this sector by focusing on delivering valuable and high-quality creative content to their audiences.
New Opportunities for the Media Companies
According to OneNative’s Co-founders, there is no shortage of opportunities for the media companies that are keeping pace with the ever-changing tech world. Through regional content strategies, media companies can reach out and connect with regional audiences, which can be crucial for growing their audiences.
