On this occasion, Mr. GBS Bindra, Founder and CEO, Charmboard commented, “Charmboard provides a platform which inspires potential customers to discover brands organically whilst consuming video content.

We are leveraging video content as an impactful source of discovery and pioneering a non-intrusive way for brands to getting across to interested users. Completing one billion discoveries is a milestone not just for us but also for brands who have associated with us throughout these years. This shows the power and scale of digital video consumption and demonstrates how using AI, Charmboard is building a very large business off video.

On an average, Charmboard records 5 touches per video view on charm-enabled video, roughly 3 products are discovered per Charm and discovered product cards have 4 to 5% Click Through Rate.
