Marissa Bronfman Vogue India smoothie bowls Moxie Media

Our Founder and President Marissa Bronfman’s healthy smoothie bowls, which look like works of art, couldn’t be more popular on Instagram and have many loyal admirers both online and off. The May 2014 issue of Vogue India has featured one of her breakfast smoothie bowls as part of its ‘8 Ways To Be A Summer Goddess’ story, alongside her tips for building the most power-packed bowls.

Beautiful smoothie bowls alive with the goodness of anti-oxidants and Omega 3s come courtesy of the use of superfoods like Himalayan goji berries, chia seeds, bee pollen and maca powder, and are as delicious to eat as they are a treat for the eyes.

In the same Vogue India story, Marissa talks about the health benefits of incorporating yoga and meditation into one’s daily routine, suggesting downloading Blissology’s yoga series on any portable device to maintain the practice while traveling.

Want to know more about her beautiful, healthy food and living well practices? Be sure to follow our secret project #THEBIGbbREVEALon FacebookTwitter and Instagram for the latest.

Marissa Bronfman Featured in Architectural Digest India for her healthy cooking. Story via Moxie Media.

Moxie Media’s Founder and President Marissa Bronfman was recently featured in Architectural Digest India’s May-June issue for her ingenious use of a kitchen accessory that has made her life simpler and her culinary creations beautiful.

In “The Simple Life”, Marissa talks about how she uses her Spiralizer to #livegreen.

 “Purple curlicues of raw beet, finely sliced slivers of carrot, ropes of corkscrewed zucchini, my kitchen has become a whimsical circus of shapes and colors ever since I introduced the Spiralizer to my culinary repertoire and my dishes have never been prettier – or healthier. This simple yet ingenious design delivers luscious zucchini ‘pasta’, raw salads and so much more. It’s also part of a top-secret project launching in Bombay very soon.”

Featured alongside Marissa are Business of Fashion’s Founder Imran Amed, celebrated designer duo Shivan and Narresh and The Leela’s Aishwarya Nair, who each describe one aspect of design that has made their life easier.

THE POWER OF DIGITAL | VOGUE INDIA’S SITA WADHWANI

Category: Digital, Fashion, Featured, India

“Sita Wadhwani is one of our industry’s brightest digital thinkers. Formerly the editor of Mumbai’s CNNGo.com she currently heads Vogue.in as their Digital Editor. Read her candid experiences from the helm of India’s most read online fashion resource.” - Border & Fall

“Two months ago I was approached with a significant career prospect. To become the editor of the India’s ELLE magazine, an excellent publication shaped Nonita Kalra, an exemplary editor who had given me my first job in fashion over a decade ago. The decision not to pursue the opportunity was largely influenced by the magazine’s digital plans.”

Lesson 1: Hurry up, fast

To embrace digital is to get a publishing tool in your hand and just go with it.

Lesson 2: Drop perfection, pick tools

To make sure every hyperlink, tag, search engine optimized keyword is in place is tedious business.

Lesson 3: Share, curate, collaborate

Original content is important. But more content is more important for audience retention.

Lesson 4: Laptop-based gigs are the best

Given a level of maturity in the editorial team it is entirely conceivable that one might run one’s publishing business remotely.

Lesson 5: Modern modalities

From the window of my computer I can see the possibility of aligning the personal with the professional, keeping various work and play streams going while grasping freedom and life outside an office chair where the previous generation lived and died.

MOXIE MEDIA & GOODEARTH | WSJ MINT

Category: Featured, India, Profiles

 

My online life

Right now 26-year-old Marissa Bronfman is working on a deadline to launch a blog to accompany their new e-commerce site. “The beauty of Goodearth is that everything has a story, rooted in Indian craft, tradition, heritage and philosophy, and we wanted to create our own space online to share those inspiring stories,” she says. Bronfman, who moved to India in early 2011 from Toronto, Canada, after an assignment, wears many hats—apart from her role at Goodearth, she works as a writer, editor and digital media consultant. She tells us why everyone should be on Twitter and Facebook. Edited excerpts:

Not many job profiles say digital and social media head. What does your job description really entail?

I manage all of Goodearth’s social media platforms—Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest—some of which I created and others that I took over. I work to ensure that communication and interaction on social media stays true to the brand’s style, while at the same time working to grow their reach and audiences. I track and analyse the analytics for all platforms, which informs and sometimes helps shape future content and digital strategy. For example, from tracking fan response on the Goodearth Facebook page, it’s very clear to me that our bright, colourful photos are one of the best ways to engage fans through likes and comments. Fans also love to see behind-the-scenes pictures, perhaps a craftsman carefully stitching an embellished Goodearth cushion.

What is the best part of your job?

That I get to experience or have access to all the beautiful things that I have to talk about. In some small way, I even get to tell the companies what will be viable for this market. For my first digital and social media consulting assignment in India, I worked with a luxury travel company and travelled to all of their properties in breathtaking Ladakh and Kumaon. A truly memorable first client in India.

How did your relationship with social media start and grow?

My first job was in New York City with The Huffington Post. It was there that I began to not only understand the power of digital but to learn its inner workings and become genuinely intrigued by it.

Which is the one network a brand serious about social media cannot ignore?

No person or brand serious about having an online presence can ignore Twitter and Facebook. Instagram and Pinterest are a close second.

You run a consultancy, Moxie Media… How is this different or similar to what you do at Goodearth?

I do for Goodearth exactly what I do for other clients: Translate their brand online in a sophisticated, beautiful and intelligent way that captures the spirit and integrity of the brand while ensuring that it’s modern, compelling and worth talking about. At Moxie Media, another client is a British luxury beauty company that will be launching in Mumbai and online. Of course, trying and testing dozens of luxury beauty products—everything from make-up, skincare, haircare and accessories—is a wonderful perk.

How is writing 600-word articles different from saying your piece in 140 characters?

As a writer and journalist, I always sought precision in language and to cut out the superfluous—Twitter demands just that. If you can’t distil what you want to communicate in 140 characters, then your message needs refining.
