A Double Win for Times Internet on the Global Stage
Times Internet, India’s largest digital product company, has been making quite a few waves in in the digital space. On June 1, 2017, TIL struck it rich and won two awards on two separate global platforms— DMA Asia Echo Awards 2017 and AWS Mobility Awards 2017.
TIL’s music streaming service Gaana won the DMA Asia Echo Awards 2017 for its “Dil Ka Gaana” campaign, in the “Effectiveness” (Publishing/Entertainment/Media) category. The “Effectiveness” category, recognizes leaders by gauging the factual impact of a campaign based on quantifying real outcomes. The fact that Gaana has grown at nearly 300% in the last 6 months, and firmly established itself as a brand with the pulse of the people has helped it garner this prestigious award.
Commenting on this achievement, Gaana COO Prashan Agarwal said, “The musical episodic love story of the “Dil ka Gaana” campaign resonated strongly with today’s youngsters who have given Gaana a place in their hearts and in their lives. Our great content and intuitive app design have given us considerable leverage in the youth market, and we strive to continue this success spree while delivering the best of the music industry to our worldwide consumers.”
Very recently, Gaana also brought home the 'Digital Media Company of the Year' award at A&R Worldwide's International Music Industry Awards - MUSEXPO’ 2017 which were held in Los Angeles.
