Client Speak

Saintgits has a relationship of trust with Aaroh. Often they have fiduciary responsibility of a significant part of our marketing budgets. Alignment to our objectives and transparency in the reporting have ensured that we develop a completely open relationship. Today, Aaroh is an integral part of our leadership team.

In the past 1 year that we have worked with Aaroh, both our offline and digital presence has transformed dramatically. We still have a long way to go, but Aaroh has worked with our large leadership team, 4 colleges with 8 different kinds of audiences, and our lean marketing team to take complete charge in certain areas to deliver growth and results – supporting us during our critical events and admission season with war room like efforts.

Our association is deepening with a larger part of the Saintgits group recognising the difference Aaroh has made to our overall presence in the community that we serve – that of students and their parents.
