1- Hello Trevor and Remon, can you tell us a bit about yourself
We are co-founders of delvv.io. Trevor is from New York, and Remon is from Johannesburg, South Africa. We met a few years ago and have recently launched delvv.io. We both come from the market research industry and have teamed up to change how clients access feedback on their creative work.
2- How would you describe “delvv.io” in under few words?
Absolutely. delvv.io allows brands and agencies to get quick and affordable feedback on their creative ideas, ad campaigns and brands from an online community of professional creatives around the world.
3- What are your focus areas and why?
We focus on brands and agencies that are interested in optimizing their creative campaigns and brands and interested in spending a little time to get quality feedback on how they can be putting the best ads and best branding in front of consumers.
4- Where do you think you are making an impact?
We are turning around projects in 5 days. Most of the industry that wants to test their ads has to wait 60 days. We are also allowing clients to test their ads anywhere in the world, to make sure they are using relevant messaging, driving consumer engagement and building strong brands.
5- Remon, what are some things that most people don’t know about your job?
That I spend as much time using technology as I do undertaking traditional market research. The insights industry is changing rapidly, and delvv.io is using cutting-edge technology to maintain our first mover advantage. You can check out more about our technology platform here http://delvv.io/our-products
6- The Entrepreneurship world is very changing, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I think Trevor and I will be running a very large and game changing market research startup. We hopefully will have expanded into new markets, so will be doing a lot of international travel.
7- Trevor, what were some of the biggest challenges you encountered as a digital marketing expert?
Attention fragmentation. Literally, hundreds of new products, social platforms, and analytics tools are launching every month. Being a digital marketer means you need to be in the loop of all the innovative ways of engaging with consumers while still trying to develop mastery of one particular niche. It’s hard to be both a broad industry expert as well as deep in one or two core areas.
8- What are you most excited about at the moment?
Large industries are being challenged by startups all over the world. It is forcing not only big businesses to adapt (or die) but an overall attitude that change is not only possible but desirable. It’s a big cultural change and think it is a net positive for society.
9- What can you tell to young entrepreneurs that are about to start in the business world?
It is ok to fail a few times in your career. The odds of you making it big your first time are against you, but if you pay attention to your missteps along the way, you’ll only get bigger, stronger and more likely to succeed.
10- A last Word or final thoughts?
We’re very excited about our current project. If any entrepreneurs, creatives (or clients!) want to keep up with us, they can follow us @delvv_io.
