How VerSe Innovation increased their CTRs by 70%

VerSe Innovation is a content technology platform company and India’s first tech unicorn focused on local languages.
It powers 300 million+ users to consume content in their local language. Its technology also powers India’s #1 and most engaging short video app, Josh.

Challenge: Difficult to scale content creation in the stipulated time

Being successful in their current market, Verse was looking to grow and reach even more people. They were specifically targeting Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities to expand their reach and tap into newer markets. Additionally, they wanted to reach these audiences in their preferred language, so that they can fully understand and appreciate what Verse Innovation offers. This expansion strategy would help the company to reach a wider range of customers and continue to grow and thrive.

Initially, Verse Innovation worked with individual creators and freelancers to create and translate their content. This approach posed several challenges for the company

  1. First, working with individual contributors made it difficult for teams to collaborate and create content efficiently. The process of coordinating and managing multiple creators was cumbersome and complex, which slowed down the content creation process.
  2. Additionally, getting the content localized was a time-consuming process. Each individual contributor would have to create and translate their own content, which added to the overall time and effort required to get the content ready for distribution.

These challenges made it difficult for Verse Innovation to create and distribute their content effectively, which hindered their ability to reach their target audience and grow their business.

Having an integrated solution where you put your requirements and get an output in a stipulated time period is very useful for a business like ours. Once we started using the platform, we were able to understand the amount of work we could get done and have gradually integrated our system here.
