It was in the month of March in 2017 when new financial year was knocking at the doors of the organizations in India, when two not so young professionals decided to forgo their comfy jobs to start something of their own. Having a vision in their minds and confidence in selves both of them resigned without even giving a second thought.
2nd April’2017 was the day when MediaVox was born and Gautam Arora and Gunjan Gupta became the proud co-founders of the organization. MediaVox was born to be an extension of publications for servicing clients and as well as agencies, which are having key interest in the publication markets. The idea was to generate business for different publications, which did not have regular staff in Northern markets or were operating out of their own states or Delhi only.
It was not a new idea but was already a tried and tested one across India and Northern Markets also but professionalism was missing and the founders being from the industry and having worked with different publications for year had got enough experience on how to manage things professionally.
About the Co-founders:
Gunjan Gupta- A thorough professional with an overall experience of 15 years and having worked with Hindustan Times, Dainik Bhaskar Group, Kotak Group, Birla MF , ICICI and Citibank in various roles and capacities handling direct as well as channel sales in the designated markets. He is a post graduate from Preston University, California.
Gautam Arora- Having a total experience of 12 years and having worked with brands like ICICI bank, Hindustan Hindi, Dainik Jagran and Bhaskar handling middle level assignments and generating business from these publications. He has experience in handling diverse teams under different business environments.
“From Day-1 we were clear that MediaVox need to provide the best of the services to our internal as well as external clients. So we created all the necessary departments like Scheduling, Vouching, client servicing and accounts to be managed by professionals to provide professional services”, said one of the co-founders.
“Today MediaVox Operates through four offices in Ludhiana, Armitsar, Chandigarh and Delhi and has a total manpower of 20 full-time employees in different domains to provide best of the services. Working with MediaVox gives publications the advantage of low operational costs as they don’t have to invest in infrastructure in our markets and gives same experience to the clients as well as advertising agencies as they are dealing with the publication directly” said the second co-founder.
