Understanding Clean Feed

How often do you see advertisements of Indian brands in Television? A lot right. How often do you see advertisements of International brands other than India in Television? Few. We never see advertisements in TV channels like HBO, Cinemax, (Pardon me if this has changed recently). That’s clean feed. But in a case of Nepal that is not what we can implement at the moment. International Trend. Globally, there are two types of television channel into practice, one is the Pay channel, where the viewers pay for watching particular channels.

The next way!

How many hour a day you spend on TV or Newspaper or Radio? And how many hours you spend on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or browsing any website. Over a year if businesses are not taking themselves online then get ready to exit, sounds harsh? Well, you will thank me someday. What actually is “taking business online” Does that mean you must have a business website? Yes, but NO, it’s not enough. Create a facebook page? Yes but again who is going to follow your business. Create a youtube video? Yes, a must, but why someone come and watch it. Sponsor…

I have found lots of colleges, groups, companies are doing Flash mob but they end up doing street dance. Flash mob is assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time and quickly dispersing. They are often used for the purposes of entertainment, satire or artistic expression. I totally appreciate the dancing talent. But how can this be a flash mob?…
