Try before you buy online

Gone are the days, when consumers steered clear of online shopping because it did  not give them an option to try out what they were about to buy. Online retailers have been busy making shopping experience as close to physical shopping experience.

Over the years in India, one of the biggest concerns for online shopping in categories such as apparels and accessories is that customers don’t know how exactly the garments will and accessories look on them.

Virtual trial room along with live chat gives that extra confidence to the customer who wants to put a face against the seller and they have witnessed 20-25 per cent increase in revenues in categories

However Prashant, CEO of Ginesys believes that to make an impact with Indian users, the current applications need to evolve much more. As these trial rooms are for a limited set of products and usually work separately from the main checkout process.

Frustration leads to Success:Anita Dongre

Frustration normally refers to a negative scenario. It does indicate the state of mind of a person who is unhappy or unsatisfied, It can be from its work place, family, education or anything else.

People who have succeeded in their respective fields were able to extract positives from negativity, so does Anita Dongre.

At least on two occasions, frustration has opened new doors of success for her.

  • When she has started her business and cannot have the raw textile with her designs. This provoked her to take part in fairs where she finds a whole new world of opportunities and she started creating logos, t-shirts and her own prints.
  • Second time also, the big shift came out of personal frustration. She wanted fame for herself but couldn’t get it the same way Tarun Tahiliani and Ritu beri got. This was because she was selling her designs to vendors and when she asks her label on those, they refused. This provoked her to start her own brand and today we all know how famous she has become.
