Reflecting on his journey, Mr. Shaikh said, “I had the opportunity to launch Evocus black water in India back in September 2019. A product that Indians had never heard of nor were they ready for it. The product was innovative, super healthy, and futuristic. But it wasn’t easy to market or sell it. We faced initial challenges, including online trolling due to its colour and price. However, through innovative, out-of-the-box strategies, we persevered. Today, Evocus Black Alkaline Water is embraced by Bollywood celebrities and Indian cricketers, with over 3500+ media articles dedicated to our product. The Google search volume for ‘black water’ has reached 110k/month, with a peak at 10 million/ month in India, which translates to curiosity and online and offline transactions. Our approach has always been unconventional, driven by innovation and a deep understanding of the internet and data.”

With over 12 years of global experience working with brands like BMW in India, Porsche in the UAE, Philips in France, and now Evocus in India, Mr. Shaikh’s diverse background has infused a global perspective into Evocus’s marketing strategies, fuelling the brand’s exponential growth.
