    • Stories are fragments of concepts, ideas, memories, emotions and above all sentiments. A storyteller crafts these simple things into glorious elements that ring a chord in the minds of the reader, listener and the viewer.
    • Over the years, the evolution of technology has changed the way in which we communicate and yet one thing has been perennial in this process: Our Stories.
    • Brands have done well when it comes to short narratives through 30 second advertisements, but do they connect with the hearts of the consumer? The answer is Not Always.
    • Stories these days require a deeper engagement with the customer and this scope lies perfectly with social media and digital platforms where the soul of storytelling is embedded today.

    • Digital Influencers and Social Media Influencers are increasingly popular on all platforms and brands can leverage the presence of these people across social platforms for marketing communication and brand messaging purposes.
    • But at the same time, this isn't an easy task and requires a very defined and strategic approach for the brands to work with different influencers online. The conventions and customs for each social platform is different and unique and brands face problems getting these etiquette right the first time itself.
    • While traditional mediums have worked for the jewelry brands in the past, the marketing landscapes for these brands have changed completely since the on-set of digital. Advertising isn't the same anymore and is only bound to get more personal and targeted by the means of digital in the future.
    • This panel is all about the nitty-gritty of the various situations that the jewelry brands are going through/ or will have to go through in the process of getting to their customers via Digital Mediums.
