What’s in the name?
Honestly, Daadiwala as an agency name is open to interpretation but we believe the name is quite a glocal conversation starter; it showcases the rawness of a unique idea and it personifies the courageous entrepreneur.
We’ve made entrepreneurs, probable hires, friends and people at large get a smile on their face with this agency name, so we stand by our decision of naming it ‘Daadiwala’.

- Content Marketing Consulting (Charged Per Hour)

Why we do it?
A single quote will explain why we do what we do – ‘We love what we do because we’re good at what we do because we love what we do’.
How we evolve?
We respect the growing social media industry but more than getting lost in the many trends and predictions, we continuously work at:
- Learning the art of unlearning
- Making ourselves more approachable to people not just clients
- Involving ourselves in a community of do-gooders
- Loving content more and more
- Understanding the stories (about their culture, people, passion) of businesses across the world
- Going back to our roots of content creation
These are some of the things that keep we do to keep up and evolve as an agency.
Social responsibility in social media
We started the agency to create a sense of respect for content amongst smaller and medium businesses across the world.
We take this as our responsibility to interact with social businesses and help them understand the power of content creation and social media marketing for a negligible service charge or nothing at all.
And our office is therefore at a collaborative workplace where we keep interacting with such businesses on a regular basis.
Need of the hour
The small businesses should respect the time invested to share ideas and pay per hour.
We learned the hard way
Yes, we did. We under-sold our services and got part of a community which does social media donkey-work for 10,000 to 20,000 INR for the longest time. Now we value our time way more than earlier and are super-confident of our services.
Did we just share that?
No amusing client experiences.

Industry as we foresee
Compared to 15-20 years ago before social media really exploded, we have more opportunities than ever to engage with audiences through the delivery of original online content. It’s widely believed that content is the future of marketing, but exactly how content marketing will impact the industry in the next five years is impossible to predict because it’s evolving at such a rapid pace.
A day without Internet
It will give us a chance read some books we would’ve never read, wrote some stories we would have never written, make some (photo & video) business documentaries, do a smile campaign for the world, volunteer for social causes that matter to our organization collectively and do a lot more.
Lastly, are you hiring?
Not at this moment.
