In the world of influencer marketing, most interactions occur online. Video calls and messaging tools enable swift and efficient task completion. However, offline meetings remain crucial for establishing deeper connections and understanding. On the DRIM platform, scouts regularly engage with bloggers, generating a substantial volume of content and advertising integrations. Trust between bloggers and their personal managers is paramount for successful campaigns. As a blogger platform, we value feedback from our bloggers to continuously improve, develop, and cultivate a comfortable environment for collaboration.
Recognizing the significance of personal connections and feedback, we organized a gathering in New Delhi. Payal Ranjan, a bloggers' personal manager, had the opportunity to meet face-to-face with dynamic Shrishti and Nikhil (@n_i_k_kakkar), as well as with creative Nikhil (@manchala.official).
We invited Payal Ranjan to share her insights from the recent offline meetup:
"Stepping out from behind my computer screen and meeting with Shrishti and Nikhil (@n_i_k_kakkar) and Nikhil (@manchala.official) in person was an eye-opening experience. The bustling energy of Delhi, which provided a backdrop for our gathering, offered a refreshing contrast to our regular digital interactions.
Our encounter went beyond a simple business meeting; it was an opportunity to connect on a deeper human level, truly know the individuals behind their blogs, and hear directly about their personal experiences and ambitions.
When I first met Shrishti and Nikhil, I was immediately captivated by their unwavering dedication and passion. They had nurtured their channel from its inception, gradually expanding their audience from a few thousand to a staggering 35,000 on Instagram and an impressive 2.66 million on YouTube.Their journey serves as a powerful testament to their relentless work ethic, offering both inspiration and valuable insights.
Nikhil (@manchala.official, has brought a distinctive charisma to our DRIM team despite being a recent addition. His unconventional approach to content creation, free from rigid templates, and his seamless adaptability to our CPA system at DRIM have been incredibly refreshing. His impressive follower count, especially on YouTube, speaks volumes about his creativity and appeal.

Our discussions delved into the intricacies of content creation, strategies for engaging with the audience, and the decision-making process behind project selection. However, it was the personal touches that infused the meeting with a unique warmth.
Much to my surprise, Shrishti and Nikhil arrived with sweets in tow. Nikhil even introduced me to his influencer sister, whose presence added a touch of celebrity to the encounter.
