DIgital Strategy and Cooking

I have always considered crafting a successful digital Marketing Strategy akin to fashioning a perfect meal. Just as in the kitchen, one must have the right fresh ingredients, the right tools (mixing bowls, chefs knife, oven, stove) and above all a guiding recipe for the prefect outcome, so too in a successful digital marketing campaign one must have the right mix of ingredients (videos, images, content), the right tools (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and of course a Digital Strategy to bring it all together.
Digital Strategy then, like cooking becomes both an art and science. And of course there is always the secret ingredient, which makes the recipe or strategy stand out. This I believe is driven by one’s own sense of adventurism, that itch to try something new, an added dash of an ingredient not called for in the recipe, just enough to make it your own. Glad to share with you my two passions.

Digital Marketing

While developing a Digital Marketing Campaign for 2Create360, I wanted to epitomize the key attributes of the company, which were youthful attitude, inquisitiveness, always absorbing new concepts, not afraid to try new things, and brimming with fresh ideas. Earlier, unrelated to the assignment, my wife had photographed our son, through her brilliantly creative lens, as he had played with his laptop. These images were perfect for what I needed. He was quickly adopted as our brand ambassador and eventually the series of images led to a rather successful online marketing campaign.

Culinary Adventures

“Oh, I adore to cook. It makes me feel so mindless in a worthwhile way.” Truman Capote
That basically sums it up for me.

In my opinion cooking is probably the most succulent of human pleasures and when I come home to my kitchen, I realize it is there that I can best satisfy the eccentricities of my own palate. Here I share some of some of my culinary explorations at the Singh Zing Kitchen.
