She is a Management Consultant and Digital Marketing Strategist with a team of subject matter experts. She has been working with start-ups, SMEs, and MSMEs and has been assisting them with their strategic marketing efforts.

From assisting these organizations in conceptualizing their digital image to strategizing the digital efforts and finally translating it to successful digital implementations across social media channels, websites, and online forums. This ultimately leads to the achievement of result-oriented efforts.

Her business’s core competency is identifying the client company’s business lifecycle stage and analyzing key growth drivers through market research and thorough analysis.

Venturing into Digitalisation

Being a Business Coach herself, Neeru Sood understands the power of social media. Through her Facebook page Prep4Success ( 4) and Instagram handle, she is building a community for building a better future.

Hurdle Puddle

“The core idea to start the business was to use my learning from the corporate world – brand management experience in healthcare and pharmaceuticals and integrate it with knowledge process outsourcing experience helping offshore and onshore clients with specific business growth and business development objectives,” Neeru highlighted explaining some of the experiential challenges she faced.

Growing out just after the month of starting her business, Neeru encountered minimum business financial risks. The prime reason for the same was infrastructural costs being primarily linked to communication and operational working and execution initially

However, it was tough for her to create a team she currently has and accounting while keeping track of financial growth. Neeru believes that, at times, it was extremely challenging for her to keep her team motivated and, at the same time to also bring in new clients through marketing her previously accomplished projects.

Significant Footing

Neeru provides women entrepreneurs, businesses, SMEs, MSMEs, and corporates with training and development as well as motivational programs.

The brand management programme curated by Prep4success (#Prep4Success) aims to help individuals, company owners, business owners, and entrepreneurs to gain a holistic view of strategic brand management, intended to help them through their brand’s journey, whether it is related to developing a new brand identity, repositioning an existing brand, ongoing control of an established brand, or personal branding and identity.

Neeru believes that marketing campaigns are the perfect way to reach customers, clients, and leads. They could be the game-changing move that secures meetings with customers or prospects. Producing campaigns with a series of touchpoints would grab someone’s attention better than a single advertisement. One needs to break through the clutter when promoting oneself or one’s business, and marketing campaigns with incentives can do that.

As suggested by Neeru Sood, the following steps can be taken:

  • Determining the need for a product through consumer research and by observing and quantifying sales patterns of similar goods in the marketplace.
  • Modifying existing products or creating new products to match consumer wants and needs.
  • Determining how best to reach potential customers to make them aware of your products and persuade them to buy them.
  • Creating marketing campaigns based on your determination of the most effective way of reaching customers.
  • Confirming customer relationships via follow-up sales campaigns and loyalty programs.

Neeru has noted the prowess to understand the changing marketing dynamics and adapt the marketing initiatives while mentoring the organization in its brand-building and digital marketing efforts.

Her venture is instrumental in devising digital marketing plans for organizations at various stages of their growth path. It is measurable and encourages cooperative and collaborative marketing initiatives with like-minded partners. It also has well-articulated and timed digital campaigns, SEO and internet marketing activities, and social networking opportunities. With all these achievements, Neeru is proud of the brand-building, management, and digital efforts of many organizations, SMEs, MSMEs, Start-ups, Organisations, and Entrepreneurs to fruition.

Snack For Energy

Neeru believes in providing her clients with the best solutions creating credibility. Along with this, she maintains her discipline regarding deadlines based on the dynamism of the client and the energy that a project or a business requires.

Integration of the three aspects: ‘Strategic Analysis’, ‘Brand Building Guidance,’ and ‘Digital Marketing Steering’ has helped Neeru come up with a holistic solution for her clients.

Advice for Buds

Her advice for young students is, “An individual evolves professionally and personally, their skills refine, and thus they become better adapted. The only person you are destined to become is the one you actually decide to become, but you must adequately prepare for it!”

After a total of 19 years of experience, even today, Neeru is preparing for the next achievable milestone in her professional career. Thus, she strongly believes that success is definitely a journey, not a destination.

Preparing, Improving, and adapting are the keys to success!!
