When Kushal Banarsi Dass approached one of the leading youtube channels to collaborate for his newly launched clothing collection, he wasn’t exactly met with enthusiasm.
In fact, the brutal rejection trembled his plans.
Refused to throw the towel, Kushal remained persistent and didn’t let the incident deter him.
Kushal was about to make the most of this setback and put in a ton of time trying to understand the marketing and branding industry.
In 2017, he turned his outright back-set into success by laying the foundation of a multi-channel network and digital marketing company, Brodeway.
Successfully telling the tale, Brodeway provides marketing services for people and organizations across the country.
Their customer base grows larger and larger all the time, with a valuable client base of leading brands such as Vigo Video, Dailyhunt, Chingari, Godrej, Roposo, Soul Flower, Likee, Bytedance, Kwai India and many more.
This is an inspiring story of Brodeway and its founder, Kushal who powered through the rejections and shaped out his entrepreneurial journey with his dedication, determination and passion.
Kushal shares Brodeway’s journey and the plans ahead. Edited Excerpts…

Before committing to any deal, we do thorough research of the clients and brands we approach or those who want to avail of our services.
Financial status and moral ethics are our topmost concerns whenever we do our background checks.
As a branding professional could you share professional insights on how to successfully market a business during a crisis market such as COVID-19?
See, I will not say it’s simple; rather it’s tricky. There is money in the market but in a different place as compared to pre-Covid-19 time.
For example, Elon Musk, Adani Group, and Mukesh Ambani, all got extremely wealthier in this lockdown.
The reason being, they found opportunities in these rough times, and I also try to do the same.
I just look for companies that have benefited from the pandemic and new start-ups that were made to ease people’s lives in lockdown.
These are the types of brands that get your business running even if there’s a market crisis.
What are your favorite marketing techniques?
Our favorite marketing technique is influencer marketing.
We have a lot of lot, I mean a volume of creators and we love utilizing it.
You get to know new talents, across various languages, you are bringing fresh talent to the limelight and learn new things with new people.
Simultaneously, it helps to brand ourselves in the long run via word of mouth and generate goodwill for our work.
The marketing industry brings its stress and challenge(s). How do you manage them?
I travel a lot. Whenever I feel that stress is piling up, I just pack my bag, take my car and go anywhere I like.
We frequently go on corporate trips; to take an escape, detox ourselves from the stress and then get back to work- with full zeal.
What are your plans for the future?
We intend to expand our team of marketers, writers and advertising experts and plan to collaborate with more than 100K+ social media influencers.
Also, we strive to extend our services to Apparel Industry and Real Estate. Entering the list of Forbes’ 30 under 30 is also in my planning journal.
Finally, can you please share some advice or your favorite quote?
My advice is – never settle for good, always go for the better. This age, this youth is a very productive time of our life where we can experience and try many things. Instead of only partying and spending money, one should earn his/her own money and success and then celebrate it.
