I loved how intuitive and easy-to-use the platform is. The content audit feature seems the most valuable as it lets me know the readability level, word count, etc. without having to remember it each time. Really appreciate how the team is always a call away to resolve any issues that we might encounter. Pepper is definitely our friendly neighborhood content partner.

Ketto, founded by Varun Sheth, Zaheer Adenwala, and Kunal Kapoor, is a tech company that came to life in 2012. Now, what Ketto does is pretty awesome – they're all about crowdfunding. You know, that old-school practice of gathering small contributions from a bunch of people to achieve a common goal? Well, Ketto took that and brought it into the digital world.

The company's nifty platform has helped entrepreneurs from all over the world raise money for all sorts of causes like healthcare, emergencies, education, and even recovery from natural disasters. And here's the best part — they've taken this traditional offline practice and given it a high-tech makeover to ensure this shared goal is more transparent and cost-effective.

This case study explores Ketto's journey in overcoming the challenges associated with outsourcing content and the subsequent partnership with Pepper Content to adopt a premium strategy and drive organic growth.

In their pursuit of high-quality content, Ketto, a major player in crowdfunding, initially opted for outsourcing its content requisites to a specialized agency. It seemed like a good idea because various agencies in the market are adept at aligning content with the client's objectives and ensuring its top-notch quality. They can make sure your content is excellent and fits your goals.

However, as Ketto would come to learn, the path of content outsourcing is not always smooth sailing.

At first, Ketto's outsourcing plan looked like a big success. The agency cranked out content, giving Ketto a steady flow of articles, blogs, and social media posts. It was a promising start that made them think they made the right choice.

  • Timely Deliveries: The agency met deadlines, impressing Ketto with their punctuality. It was a seamless operation that held the promise of uninterrupted content flow.

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Economically speaking, outsourcing made sense. The agency offered competitive rates, allowing Ketto to allocate resources elsewhere, amplifying its operational efficiency.

As time progressed, Ketto noticed some issues with the content delivery and quality.

1. Mediocre Content Quality

The content supplied was mediocre at best. It lacked the finesse and depth that Ketto's mission called for. The agency operated on a fixed set of creators, none of whom were subject matter experts. This lack of domain knowledge seeped into the content, which made the content generic and not very impactful.

2. Slow Turnaround Time

Despite vigilant follow-ups, the speed at which content was published began to decline. The agency's response time progressively slowed, impeding Ketto's ability to maintain a consistent content calendar. This change affected the efficiency they used to have.

3. Brand Disconnection

The agency's content didn't capture the spirit of Ketto's brand. It didn't connect with the audience the way it should have. This mismatch risked the strong foundation of Ketto's brand identity.

4. Inefficient Content Delivery System

The absence of a streamlined communication system aggravated the already tense scenario. A continuous back-and-forth ensued, creating an inefficiency loop that drained Ketto's resources and patience.

Recognizing these roadblocks, Ketto embarked on a strategic journey to enhance its content creation process, aiming to elevate the experience for its diverse audience. Discover how Pepper Content played a pivotal role in revitalizing Ketto's content creation strategy, enabling them to confront their challenges with confidence and ingenuity.
