MUMBAI: Twitter has expanded its Indian outreach to empower agencies and brands it works with to capitalize on live, always-on moments and video innovation through the platform. The outreach program in India is anchored by a three-prong strategy: gamified learning through DIY postcards, new deep dive courses for its Flight School online education programme, and a new series of multi-city #GoLive agency bootcamps.

"The digital space moves at lightning speed, change is the only constant. Agencies know of Twitter, but not many know how best to leverage our latest tools in a way that adds value for their clients. To help increase the understanding as our platform and the industry evolves, we are working to engage more with marketers around the world so that they and their clients can use Twitter more effectively to reach and engage with target customers," says Simon Brockman, Head of Agency Development, APAC & MENA, Twitter.

Gamified learning going back to basics

Twitter India will send weekly ?Did You Know? cards to agencies over a six week period, to help agencies in achieving their marketing goals through gamified learning. These ?Did You Know? cards will contain interesting facts and trivia about Twitter?s advertising solutions, share best practices on how to target and build an audience on the platform, and deliver research insights to agency representatives. On the corresponding Friday, there will be trivia quiz hosted from @TwitterAdsIN open to employees of participating agencies to test that week's knowledge.

New modules available to agencies and brand marketers globally

For marketers seeking to advance their digital prowess, Twitter Flight School serves as the go-to resource for agencies and brand marketers to stay on top of the latest innovations on the platform and ideas to maximize campaign results. More than 7,900 representatives from brands and agencies in the region has registered for the free online education program so far. Within a week in India, nearly 600 agency representatives have signed up for the program.

Twitter has added new deep dive modules to Flight School that support marketers who are keen on leveraging premium content advertising from top broadcasters, sports leagues, and content creators. Marketers can explore content partnerships with Twitter Amplify, scale optimisation with Twitter Ads, and maximize TV campaign results with Twitter integration. Upcoming modules include the latest video on Twitter and direct response features, key drivers of engagement for advertisers on Twitter.

The #GoLive training sessions and Flight School from Twitter ensure that we are topping the digital game, aligned to the needs of our teams, while helping us elevate as a Group.? - Gregory Fortune, Head of Trading, Southeast Asia, Publicis Groupe

"The age of ?Precision and Addressability? has arrived and as agency leaders, we need to be at the forefront to best advise our clients on their brand strategies and campaigns in this fast changing Digital landscape. I am excited to see Twitter making the effort to help upgrade agency skills with Twitter Flight School and the agency bootcamp. We look forward to closer collaboration with Twitter to take our agency to greater heights,? Yasir Riaz, Managing Director of Starcom Indonesia.
