On partnering with Encubay, Ankit Agarwal, Founder, Do Your Thng, said, “We’re thrilled to be working with Encubay and offering our menu of services, including branded filter-based campaigns, product integration campaigns, custom content, data-driven influencer planning and campaigns, to the businesses the network supports. It’s given us an opportunity to drive growth in women-led startups and make a dent in the gender inequality in the ecosystem. In addition, since we collaborate with smaller content creators who have higher engagement rates, the startups will gain an extremely cost-effective way to leverage influencer marketing.”

“For startups, the budget is limited, so mega influencers and celebrities are economically prohibitive. But with the same budget, they can team up with dozens, if not hundreds, of micro and nano influencers. Given the depth of their audience size, it enables wider reach, increases traffic and pushes sales to an extent few other tactics can. That’s why 89% of businesses find the ROI from influencer marketing comparable to or better than other marketing channels,” Agarwal added.

“Collaboration amplifies impact. We have actively been engaging with various women-led startups, industry experts, investors and corporates to enhance the growth of our portfolio companies. With the intent of enabling frugality without compromising on quality, we bring together some of the best growth partners, commented Eashita Maheshwary, Co-founder, Encubay, on the partnership.

“In addition to having brands like Jio and HSBC on board, we are very excited to embark on this partnership with team DYT that will assist our companies reach their audience through a strong influencer community. It’s definitely going to benefit our teams while we sprinkle our part of diversity into their community. At Encubay, we are what our network is and are delighted to have our DYT on board with us,” Maheshwary said.
