A lot of Infinit Academy participants and also specialists, young entrepreneurs and students that participated at my trainings asked me repeatedly about the movie that I usually use to begin my presentations (with the child buying Encyclopedia – Adobe commercial). Here it is one of the (best) ads that I really appreciate (Adobe’s commercial regarding marketing) and I look forward to meeting you at my future trainings.
I was invited to have a keynote and a workshopathon in Cairo and I was completely impressed by the fact that the organizers managed to merge very interesting topics in one event.
There were great creative presentations, strategy or even technical ones.
And not to forget the futurology presentations of business approach, JJ Walburg and Alex Cernatescu had one of a hell keynotes.
Taking in consideration that we need to prove that also all the invested money get a positive ROI, I had a very complex task: how to be sure you will get the return on investment or how to act starting tomorrow in order to increase the results of those campaigns.
The market in Cairo, first of all, has an amazing opportunity: the users consume the content, no matter the ads. Therefore the ad blocking penetration is very low, actually 1% according th PageFair and Adobe.
However, they definitely will need to start focusing on relevance and better targeting in order to keep this percentage of ad blocking spread.

Ca si evolutie a business-ului Infinit cel mai important lucru este fondarea The MasterPlan Agency, noua agentie de performance marketing, media digitala si e-commerce a grupului Infinit. Agentia The MasterPlan este condusa de Adrian Enache si a avut o lansare “silent” in 2014, si-a format deja o echipa foarte puternica si a inregistrat deja o cifra de afaceri peste obiectivele propuse, atat din clientii grupului cat si din clienti proprii. Spuneam si mai sus ca am incheiat 2014 cu peste 1.500.000 Euro cifra de afaceri pe Infinit Solutions Agency, iar The Masterplan Agency are business deja contractat de peste 400.000 Euro.
“În 2014, cea mai mare schimbare pentru Infinit a venit prin lansarea The MasterPlan Agency, agenție care va centraliza toate operațiunile de media digitală, e-commerce și performance ale grupului nostru.
Tot la capitolul schimbări aș vrea să menționez câștigarea unui număr mare de pitchuri care ne-a adus în portofoliu conturi noi, importante, cum ar fi CEC Bank, TOTAL sau Cosmopolis, ca să numesc doar câteva.”
