Says Tata Teleservices marketing communication - VP Trivikram Thakore, "The purpose of advertising is to create awareness among those who represent your consumption audience. One can do this through a slow burn approach which still has some probability attached to it or a high impact approach where you take up all possible advertising space to ensure visibility for 100 per cent of your potential consumers. The roadblock on enables us to reach out to our consumption audience at the right place and time."Adds media2win COO Namrata Balwani, "Contextual relevance is the key to any form of brand advertising. Star Player has content that requires hi-speed video streaming
