What's in the name?

Pint means small and Maven means expert. We figured out that any digital campaign is dependent on executing small pieces expertly hence the name.

What we do?

There are 2 sets of activities which we do –

1. Technical: We provide every possible technical development support

2. User Experience: We provide expertise on predicting and documenting user journey and experience for digital campaigns.

 Why we do it?

Says Ankit Garg, Director, Pint Maven,

We were figuring out a gap in the entire value chain of digital advertising where we could make the most impact, when we realized that there is dearth of good execution partners of existing agencies.

Typically agencies run on very tight timelines since everything is fluid. As a result they are always on the look-out for technology partners who can turn-around stuff in short deadlines.

Another challenge for agencies is to forecast user journey and experience which can have a major impact on the overall success of the campaign. With the objective to solve these challenges, Pint Maven was conceived in late 2012.

How we evolve?

We plan to keep ahead of the curve by building IP in the company. We have already developed proprietary workflows for Facebook App Design and Development and have in-fact executed couple of projects for one of India’s biggest digital marketing agency.

 Social responsibility in social media

We truly believe that any business done on information asymmetry doesn’t have strong feet. Our industry makes it all the more true. There are no secrets to it and are –

1. Be committed to support the client and get amazed how clients would support you

2. Respect from the client

3. Never die spirit to become better at what you do

Need of the hour

More responsible behavior from people at large in using social media.

We learned the hard way

Try to make life of client easier and smoother

They work with us

We are working with one of India’s largest digital marketing agency along with couple of more.

Industry as we foresee

There is a whole set of generation which would access social media for the first time directly from their smart phones. Industry needs to address that population. Video Marketing would also become big in 2013.

A day without Internet

Hard to imagine what would it feel!

Lastly, are you hiring?

Currently nope but very soon.
