“Facebook has increasingly become an ROI platform. We are able to fulfil any objective that a brand might have, using different sets of targeting options and ad types. There is absolutely nothing it can’t do for brands across verticals. It’s just a matter of getting your content, creative and media strategy right—as in the case of Tanishq, where we, along with the Facebook team, took the most aggressive target of in-store sales for a niche segment like jewelry in India. The results were tremendous, as this was the only campaign that was executed on digital during that period.”
