What’s in the name?
Well, our name certainly had more of a symbolism around belongingness and a sense of accomplishment; though we sound very hi-tech and snazzy when we talk of our name, but actually speaking, Nikulsan has evolved out of names of the co-founders: Nishant, Kuldeep and Sandeep. So, you can say; everything is in the name.

Why we do it?
We chose to do it because we simply love it; it’s great fun and an absolute kick when we address the various challenges or identify the opportunity areas around diverse brands. The whole process of understanding our clients, the storytelling and contributing to their success trajectories is very exciting; considering the digital advancements today, every day is a day of knowledge sharing, learning and accomplishment at Nikulsan.
How we evolve?
Every day is a new day and comes with innovations or evolving trends; we keep our vibrancy and dynamism alive by walking in sync with time, keeping ourselves updated as experts in marketing domain and also building a continuous pool of resources and knowledge.
We also saw a first mover advantage in establishing our foothold in real estate sector at the right time and could build a leadership there with almost 70 percent of the domain clients utilising our services. Similarly, progression from just digital to becoming an integrated marketing and communications approach was also a part of organic evolution for us.
We are proactive in understanding what works, the market pulse and try being in that quadrant. So, in short, we keep growing.
Social responsibility in social media
It’s difficult to ignore the impact of social media for any brand in existence; so it becomes more imperative for the social media agencies to be conscious enough as the brands have entrusted their imagery and definition in the agency’s hands.
The quality or intent of media or content could make or break. The agency needs to understand the moderation of any content and should ensure that the media/ communication is free of any radical connotations to create any social commotion; sensitive social listening is a must.
Need of the hour
Brands need to create the right perception, a conducive vibe around themselves; the story of their vision and distinctive advantage needs to be effectively told to the audience out there. This could only happen through collaborative efforts in holistic marketing and media where offline or online needs to speak a common language; this will create the lasting impact and a great brand recall.
Often, that’s where the brands go amiss and the best of ideas just fade away; rich storytelling and synchronisation of communication channels is the key
We learned the hard way
I would not call it learning the hard way, but we had always believed in working quality, even if that meant selective or minimal work as that would be our representation to any brand and industry as a whole; for us the testimonials and references have always been sacrosanct.
This definitely had it’s own set of challenges in terms of kick-start but the evolution has been on steady forefronts of goodwill and work speaking for us.
Did we just share that?
Ha ha…am sure there would be many fun moments, as often while brainstorming, whether it’s with clients or within our team, unintentionally funny situations arise and are perfect stress-busters; only, I can’t recall them at the moment.
They work with us
Nxtra Data, PVR bluO, Walmart, Sobha Developers, Mantri Group, Cornittos, Punjab Grill, Somany Tiles, Raheja Group, RAGC, Edelweiss, Mysore Udyog, Srijan Developers, Dhoot Group and more
Industry as we foresee
The scope of social media is tremendous and is constantly evolving; the world is moving beyond Facebook and Twitter and the innovations are evident in other platforms such as Instagram, LinkedIn and snapchat; marketing at the end of the day can’t be restricted to a single medium and would always be about larger imprints.
At the moment,our own country is at a promising juncture where we are open to newer technologies and progressive business models and so is the global scenario.
A day without Internet
It can easily be coined as a day of minimal activity in the world of our dependability on smartphones and internet based communication platforms. I guess that day would be good to catch up on our human side and chalkboards/ scribbles and vocal brainstorming will come back.
Don’t mind such a day once in a while actually…can’t say the same for our clients though. LOL
Lastly, are you hiring?
Yes, hiring for us is a continuous process and we love building the fresh talent around us.
