Chief Revenue Officer, Times Internet
Times Internet, the digital arm of media conglomerate Times of India Group, has expanded beyond digital media to provide a host of services to consumers in India, from food delivery to music streaming. eMarketer’s David Green spoke with Times Internet’s chief revenue officer Gulshan Verma about the company’s current revenue breakdown and what trends are driving the growth of digital advertising in India.
eMarketer: You describe Times Internet as a digital product tech company. What does that mean?
Gulshan Verma: We’re more than a digital media company. We’re moving in the direction of being a comprehensive utility—services with media attached to it as well. For example, [Times Internet-owned] Magicbricks is probably the largest classifieds site in India right now, and through that we help 80% of people who want to move find a property. We have apps that help students revise for exams, as well as a spending aggregator that helps you find where your money is. Basically, we started in media and then headed out in a variety of different directions.
