It is very important for all of us to keep a positive attitude and keep sharing our love to each other. It is a time, when the entire humanity must come together and take responsibility to do their part in controlling the spread of the disease. BIGO family is very thankful to our prime minister and the government, who are trying day and night to curb Corona virus and taking all the right measures to control it. Our heartfelt gratitude also goes out to the general public who directly or indirectly are out there and helping us by fighting corona.” Nagesh Banga, Deputy Country Head of BIGO LIVE commented on the occasion.

All the content creators & broadcasters, who are official broadcasters of BIGO LIVE went online by live streaming sharp at 5pm as the event began, and paid their gratitude and at the same time motivated their followers to do the same and urged them to come together as a society and support each other. All these broadcasters on their live streams, stood up and cheered for the medical, aviation & police forces & all those real life hero’s who have been working, round the clock so that the general audience can stay safe and healthy.
Over hundreds of Bigo Live broadcasters continued streaming for the duration of one hour, who are having fans over millions .

At a recent panel discussion at IAMAI’s Pixels 2020 held at Hyatt Mumbai, prominent brands from Technology, advertising and media were invited as speakers!
Apart from other dignitaries, Nagesh Banga, Dy. country head, Bigo Live, was also invited as a speaker to share his expertise on ‘How User generated content is changing the dynamics’
While Mr Banga emphasized on the fact that UGC puts customers Front and Center. Customer-oriented businesses are on the rise, because brands have to constantly serve their users. Also, in this fast-paced, digitally-run world, attention-spans can be snapped away with the click of a fingers. If brands aren’t catering solely to their customers, their customers will simply find another brand & make a shift.
Apart form this, other key-takeaways were, it is important to give viewers, binge-watching opportunities to make them loyal set of consumers. Here, digital media brands play a pivotal role, as masses want something different from what they see on television and Digital space is their ‘go to solution’!
With increasing demand for regional content, entertainment brands in digital space enables localisation which can take place on multiple levels in terms of story, background, and setup. Without localisation, it is difficult to resonate with consumers. From a brand’s perspective, it’s imperative that viewership comes from different kinds of audiences, rather than from only one kind, which makes a channel more robust!
