Hey Baggu! Your store for the world famous Punjabi Juttis

Tell us something about the store owner-the brain behind the brand?

Hey Baggu is a unit of Soni enterprises founded by two cousin brothers , Anmol Pathela and Vikas Soni. Mr. Vikas Soni as a businessman from last 16 years comes in collaboration with Anmol, having 5 years of experience as an Analyst.

How did you come up with the idea of creating your own store?

One evening I (Anmol) was sitting with two of my friends who were into the business of punjabi juttis and Suits. Simply they expressed their wish to go online, but were upset because of lack of knowledge. The vary next day I saw Kartrocket’s Advertisement. Now the jigsaw was automatically solved, vendors and store was ready in front of me. I discussed with my elder brother Vikas Soni and he said lets do it!

What is so unique about your online store?

Hey Baggu Muktsari Jutti

The unique thing about heybaggu is that customers will get an exclusive range of Original traditional Punjabi Juttis. They can find juttis on lots of stores but the original handmade jutti is manufactured in Muktsar and Amritsar in Punjab and Pakistan only, which are now available on heybaggu.com and of course second thing I think unique is its name (lol). Hey Baggu means Hey! Bhagwan.

What were the major challenges did you face while starting up?

Main thing we need in online stores is building a trust and worthy relationship with customer. So currently we are just focusing on that, offering 30 days replacement policy and Cash on delivery.

Any learning you want to share with fellow entrepreneurs?

If you really give customers a great experience, they will tell their friends and they’re much more likely to come back to you. So ‘walk the talk’. If there’s anything worse than bad service, it’s being told how great the service is, then finding out the opposite is true.

How was your experience with Kartrocket?

It was an awsome experience with Kartrocket. I got each and everything that i needed to set up an Online store. Thanks to Kartrocket and Team.

The Batter House: Your 1-Stop Shop For Your Baking Needs

Tell us something about the store owner/s.

It’s a team of four – three sisters and a brother – Arti, Shaili, Mohit and Pooja- all enjoying the taste of business and the rich learning coming along with it. All four are professionals and come from diverse fields. Pooja Gupta, who is an engineer and MBA by professional is the technical brain behind TBH( The Batter House).  Aarti is a chartered accountant by profession while Shaili is an Architect and Urban planner. Both are perfectionist by nature and try to customize anything and everything through subtle design elements. Mohit Gupta is a commerce professional and look after business development for the batter house.

How did you come up with the idea of creating your own store?

One evening in December 2013, four cousins went out for a casual dinner. None of them knew that this casual dinner would be one which they will never forget. Discussions happened around starting something up, doing something on our own, bouncing of ideas, idea selection, refining it, etc, etc. Post three hours of discussion over humble burgers from Dunkin donuts, we had an idea – we wanted to ease the life of home based bakers and chocolate makers (mostly ladies). We wanted them to enjoy their baking while we deliver the supplies to their doorstep. Next day onwards, all four of us deep dived into validating our idea by talking to some people from target market, understanding their pain points, the ingredients they use, their current supply sources and so on. Fact that our idea was welcomed by all with open hands was a big motivation. Once validated, we started working on our business model and setup.
Worked on identifying product importers in India, setting up the supply chain, getting the website up, finalizing name for our startup, startup branding, company formation and the list goes on. We were working on a war footing pace to launch it at the earliest. Finally on February 11th, 2014 we went live with our online store.

What is so unique about your online store?

The Batter House is a one-stop shop for people who are into baking & chocolate/desert making. It eliminates the need for our customers to visit multiple stores to get their supplies. We let bakers concentrate on what they enjoy most and that is baking!

What were the major challenges did you face while starting up?

Online buying of goods is still not preferred by a lot of people in India. This is the biggest challenge that we face today. Many women have home bakeries, for which they need raw material and other goods on a daily basis. They agree that it is convenient for them if all their supplies are delivered to their doorstep. But, they are not comfortable using the internet for placing the order. So, we also offer the facility of ordering over phone or Whatsapp to our customers.

Any learning you want to share with fellow entrepreneurs?

Never under estimate the power of a happy customer. One happy customer goes a long way in promoting your business. Wow the customer at every point. Even if a customer is upset, he/she can be converted to a happy one with just a little attention from you.

How was your experience with Kartrocket?

Experience with Kartrocket has been good. A set website platform and aggregated logistic service in place helped us to concentrate on other aspects of business and really helped The Batter House in going live at the earliest.

Siri Collections: Online store for Suits, Sarees and Lehangas

Tell us something about the store owner-the brain behind the brand?

siricollections Siri collections is an idea of two sisters (K Deepthi Reddy & K Divya Reddy) with creativity and imagination put together. We discovered our passion for different designs, fabrics, artworks in India. Inspired by Indian lifestyle and clothing, we have started designing sarees and jewellery.

How did you come up with the idea of creating your own store?

As the customer base is getting increased and more and more people are interested in our products, it became increasingly difficult for us to manage everything and in the process to reach the huge customer base. Then we came to know about Kartrocket e-commerce platform which is making all our work very easy to manage.

What is so unique about your online store?

All our products designed by us and are beautifully crafted to give rich look in affordable prices. Our plan is to become one stop shop for women world.

What were the major challenges did you face while starting up?

The major challenge we faced during the initial days of Siri collections was of course the funding and managing the day to day activities of our page. We did not receive any order in the first six months as we did not put proper marketing efforts. As the time progressed, people started ordering the products from us. It was only due to word of mouth we were able to reach the place what we are today.

Any learning you want to share with fellow entrepreneurs?

Continuous hard work, Passion towards work that you carry, excellent customer oriented service are the three ingredients of success.

How was your experience with Kartrocket?

Initially our store siri collections was with some other software provider from Mumbai and we could not continue with them as the service was poor. Then we moved to Kartrocket platform and the experience with them is amazing so far and we are very confident that they will always provide the best service to us.

When and how did you start online shoppee?

Faheem: In my college life I used to surf internet, shop online for various products. I realized that there is no e-store which sells complete range of antique, traditional, handicraft products especially wooden handicrafts. So I decided that I will lay the brick for such store and by god grace Online Shoppee, the unique handicraft e-gallery came into existence.

How is onlineshoppe.com doing so far?

Faheem: Though the traffic on Online Shoppee is less as compared to other rivals but I believe in the saying ” Slow but steady wins the race” and I have noticed a regular increase in sales.

What were the major challenges when you started up?

Faheem: Initially I had to face lot of difficulties for promotion, advertisement & all that stuff that gives life to my store in terms of sale. But my hobby which is internet surfing showed me the way. I get to know how to promote & where to invest for promotional activities. If I should opt for PPC or SEO or combination of both or I should make competitors my medium of promotion.

How did you get to know Kartrocket?

Faheem: I saw an advertisement of Kartrocket which was smartstore previously on the side of my web page and thought that it can be the ladder to reach my goal.
