MUMBAI: A 150-year experienced team from across advertising, marketing, content, consumer advocacy, data analytics, storytelling, studio production, digital, media, qualitative research, behavioural science and video analytics have come together to offer consulting, communication, content and video production services for brands and businesses under the name Tilt Brand Solutions.

Tilt Brand Solutions chairman and MD Joseph George says, “The context in which brands operate is everything. When that changes, everything about the brand outreach needs to change. What, where and how consumers buy, and what, where and how they consume content, have all changed. These changes cannot be responded to, by shoe-horning existing models into new structures. They need to be addressed by structuring a new; not re-structuring an old. Ergo Tilt.” 

Tilt believes that brand and communication planning today is mostly “right brained”, predicated primarily on culture, attitudes and beliefs. And while these will continue to remain critical, the plethora of actual behavioural and consumption data available today cannot be ignored.

Joseph opines, “Data analytics today sits only in digital, media or analytics agencies. At Tilt though, composite teams of left and right-brained strategists evaluate brand and behavioural data in human and cultural contexts and vice versa. Specialists in brand management, consumer behaviour, digital and media, data analytics, video analytics and communication planning work together to provide what we at Tilt call, full brained thinking.”

Democratisation of data and proliferation of screens of all sizes, have resulted in Indians consuming more videos than ever before; contributing 50 to 70 per cent of all IP traffic and 75 per cent of advertising spends. Tilt believes thus, that getting right the conceptualisation and production of advertising and content in the video format, has become critical.

Explains Joe, “Tilt’s creative philosophy of One Brand, Many Stories is built on the belief, that brands have, and need to tell many stories. More the stories, the more the brand begins to breathe and belong in people’s consciousness. The assumption that one video asset will work across audiences, objectives and platforms is flawed. Content creation and production needs to be tailored to each platform and experience across all forms of video-based advertising and content – from commercials to long, short and very short format video content.”

The leadership team, Shriram Iyer chief creative and content officer, Srikanth Sarathy chief operating officer, Rajiv Chatterjee chief business officer and soon to join Kedar Teny as chief strategy officer is confident that Tilt’s strategy-story-studio offering, driven by its twin philosophies of full-brained thinking and one brand, many stories could well serve as proof of concept for brand owners and creative enterprises who are seeking to influence, engage and entertain consumers of today.

The agency wants to sit in the union set of consulting, communication, content and video production; drawing inputs however, from the intersection set of brand building, communication planning, storytelling, analytics, media & digital strategy, behavioral science and production management.

Joseph further adds, “We had to look at talent with specific experience and skills; and so, our starting team couldn’t be more diverse from each other, and different from norm in terms of careers and academics - Airtel, Culture Machine, Disney, Franklin Templeton, Hindustan Unilever Ltd, IIT, Infosys, ISRO, Leo Burnett, Lintas, London School of Economics, McDonald’s, Mediacom, NID, Omnicom Media, PWC, Sony Sports, Star TV and The Viral Fever.”
