This made Gautam to think of a platform that brings together many influencers and content creators, who could bring about a large impact on a larger audience. Thus Mad Influence came into the picture. The platform was started on January 1st, 2018. Since then, they have on-boarded over 8000+ content creators across India from multiple networks including Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok, YouTube, Twitter, etc.

Mad Influence - Startup Challenges

During the inception of Mad Influence, the concept of Influencer Marketing was new. This created a havoc of lack of trust with much less market knowledge. This also effected the startup to hire freshers in the influence marketing domain.

As it is necessary for the startup to pay its creators on time, in order to not lose credibility. But on the other hand, the payment schedules of clients is different.

In order to overcome the challenges, Mad Influence conducted workshops across Delhi for influencers, teaching them how to create content, monetise and grow.

The team also replicated this initiative in other cities like Mumbai and Chandigarh. It help influencers with content production, which enables speeding up the entire process of influencer marketing.

Regarding the imbalance in Cash flows, the team figured out a financial cycle set up with each customer and made sure that the mutual agreement is relied upon at all times. It has solved a lot of cash flow cycles compared to the previous ones.
