MUMBAI: It was only a year ago that media veteran Nilesh Thakkar turned an entrepreneur with his media venture - The Real Media People (TRMP). Now, TRMP has bagged the sales and marketing duties for the 24-hours real estate TV channel – Spin TV that is available in Maharashtra, Gujarat and the Middle East countries.
TRMP was launched with an aim to focus on providing media solutions to the real estate sector which is heavy on print and out of home media. Thakkar says that the company’s primary goal was to become bulk buyer with top 10 builders (safe n AA++) of Mumbai and break the rate card along with minimum down payment, full white and no charge to investor with exit clause.
“Due to our top connect with builders we were able to negotiate and break the rate card and got few prelaunch deals with our volume commitments,” says Thakkar, who in the coming year plans to cross Rs 150 crore buying in real estate with 50 additional investors and more than Rs 10 crore of sales for Spin TV.
