Give us a quick overview on KRV Guru. When and how did you begin this journey and what were your motives to be a successful service provider?
KRV Guru is an Award-Winning Digital Marketing Agency with a bunch of young, energetic, creative, and passionate “MARTECH” team who love what they do. Most importantly who they work for? That is "YOU". We understand how important "You" are for us. We are known as passionate and crazy Tech-Marketers in search of innovation. With my network and interaction with most of the founders of various enterprises, it made me recognize the loopholes in the strategies upheld by them. I learned and noticed that it was one of the factors contributing to the set-backs. With a passion to succeed as an entrepreneur and assist organizations to grow by accentuating their brand presence, I established KRV Guru in the year 2018.

Each approach carries inherent benefits and limitations and finding the one that best addresses the organization’s needs could be a challenging task.

What are your thoughts about AR, VR and Internet of Things (IoT)?
The technologies like AR, VR & IoT evolution is progressing at a faster pace. AR has a close relationship with AI which in turn will help the industry to streamline most of the difficult tasks. Augmented Reality along with virtual reality together work on design-based documents lay out on real-time objects. IoT applications will grow much faster in the forthcoming generation. According to Gartner, In the year 2017 there were 8.4 billion IoT connected devices worldwide. While in the year 2018 it increased to 9.2 Billion. It is expected that in the year 2020 the IoT connected devices worldwide would be 20.8 Billion. These statistics are self-explanatory in explaining the future of IoT.
What do you think will be the future of Mobile technology?
The app revolution in Mobile technology is already making a huge difference in the business world. I think mobile apps/technology benefit the enterprises, startups & small businesses in a considerable way.
As per statistics, 62% of the businesses already have apps in place for them, of which 20% used their apps for branding, 30% have revenue generating apps and 50% have it for support and engagement.
These numbers might even fluctuate on a higher side. There is a huge scope for apps in the business domain. Be it for B2B or B2C apps play a predominant role. But, for us it is necessary to stick with the advanced technologies & understand the market needs well so that we can meet the demands on time. What we are really focusing on is to meet the market requirements.
Your thoughts on the future of digital marketing in this continuously digitizing business world
It is no longer Marketing that is going to stay in the upcoming years. We have to carry forward the legacy of MARTECH instead of Marketing. Yes, that is true. Marketing is going to have a tremendous impact from today’s technology. As per the Economic Intelligence Unit Survey lot of new & old technologies are going to influence marketing in the coming years as now such as 59% people have responded to Mobile Technology, 45% for the personalization & AI & 39% for the IoT etc. The next Marketing paradigm would be with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Chatbots, Digital Assistants (Alexa, Google Assistant etc.), Blockchain, Influencer marketing, and social media functions will have a shift or switch. We are adapting & working on these future trends so as to meet our client needs on time.
