We have earlier discussed about 'Micromax Yu' (Read Here about Micromax Yu). The handset would be launched tomorrow on 18th December, 2014.
Company has sent media Invites stating : 

 “Since time travel is not an option, block your date for 18.12.2014. Play God” As mentioned above, Cyanogen has teamed up with Micromax in an exclusive tie-up where the former will only support Micromax’s forthcoming YU smartphones. In other words, the company said that it will not support “any other devices shipping to India running on Cyanogen.”

Truth to be told, Micromax is already in a law-war with OnePlus pertaining to the exclusive tie-up of Cyanogen in India. The interesting fact is that the OnePlus One was launched in India through Amazon only. surprise

Anyways Yu have been extensively promoted and is enjoying a dedicated webpage and a dedicated Facebook page with more than 100,000 likes on it. You can also visit Amazon's exclusive page for it to subscribe. 

Recent tweet from Amazon India stated the launch of the smartphone in the market. 

We must be thinking about this so called 'Play-God' stuff. Actually,as per as the company, you can create you own theme while using the smartphone. So, you will be having a smartphone which will be exactly as you want it. 

A ban on Xiaomi and OnePlus will surely put up a sense of confidence of the customers in Micromax Yu. However, no one can predict the market, as the real God of market is customer itself. 

Best of Luck 'Yu'.

While Indian companies were celebrating its $100 million in a day, a Giant was making a Billion in 15 minutes.

1e2bb826-2937-4586-bc5c-c7a175fc07ba-620x372

Alibaba & 40 theives could't have collected as much as wealth Alibaba company has collected in just an Hour. It is a whooping 1 Billion dollar. While Snapdeal & Flipkart were struggling to keep their servers intact for the incoming traffic, Alibaba was managing an online shopping mob.

jackma_alibaba_AlibabaAlibaba managed to cross nearly Rs 5,700 crores in 15 minutes and nealy 300 crores in just next two minutes. It was a billion dollar in sales in just 17 minutes. Alibaba honored sales of nearly $6.35 billion worth of goods through its platform. It is actually double than the total sale of Black Friday sale & Cyber Monday.

It was on The Singles’ Day in China which is just for China’s bachelors. 

November 11 is the day when all single or bachelors celebrate their lonliness because November 11 is eventually 11/11 depicting four singles. Singles’ Day sales have grown by 5800% from 2009 to 2013.

There are basically two reasons for this success.

1. It is an ecommerce company which is in B2B as well. Hence a lot of awarness and an increased audience through a bilateral multilingual dialouge word of marketing enjoys.

2. Alibaba is exclusively for the world. We too have Indiamart but that is for Indian market only and that too for B2B. If we talk about Flipkart & Snapdeal. No matter how much discout coupons, deals etc they give, due to less penetration of internet in India, a Billion dollar in a few minutes is a dream.

But its India, nothing is impossible here. Stay sharp Shop smart.

Despite of all the technical glitches and a lot of upsurges in the public, both snapdeal.com & flipkart.com were able to bag 600 crores($100 million) in a single day discount event.

We got a billion hits on our site today and achieved our 24 hour sales target of $100 million in GMV (gross merchandise value) in just 10 hours, says Flipkart co-founders Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal said in a joint statement.

There has been a cold war between Amazon.in , snapdeal.com & flipkart.com to win the race of revenue collection. All of them updated with some progress in the event whereas we Amazon still tends to remain silent over the sales figures disclosure.

Snapdeal had a record breaking day of sales on October 6, 2014. We witnessed sales of over a crore rupees a minute, with lakhs of products being sold in a single day,” its Co-founder and CEO Kunal Bahl said this indicating the great success of the event.

Both the companies have a dominant position in Indian market and they tend to work on the basic rule of giving discounts to lure customers. The deals were so amazing that flipkart.com was offering Nokia 1020 at Rs 19,999 which is about 60 % less than its actual price. People enjoyed and bought a lot for themselves.

600 crores!!! How?

The answer lies in the extensive awareness and marketing campaign both the companies run. The work was to let people know the brilliant sale they can enjoy at an unprecedented price. And so did people reacted, despite of lot of technical glitches and price problems, flipkart was able to drive 600 crores rupees in just 10 hours while snapdeal.com bagged a crore rupees per minute.

The panic

This caused a panic state in offline market as Confederation of All India Traders pleaded Commerce and Industry Ministry as

“We invoke your kind and immediate attention to ongoing sale offers conducted by various e-commerce companies since last three days…they are offering discounts from 20 percent to 70 percent, whereas traders are forced to sell same products in offline markets at a higher prices since their purchase price is on a very higher side,” National General Secretary of Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) Praveen Khandelwal said.

 

Anyways, as it has always been, a bargain and discounts is what we all crave for while shopping and ecommerce websites are providing that. Whatever the revenue is, the cold war is benefiting end customers only.

Amazon too has been running “mission to mars” sales in which it dedicates itself to provide exclusive (as all of them say it) discount offers.

All three of them have spent millions of rupees to promote themselves on Diwali which include T.V. ad too.

 

Flipkart rivals Amazon India and Snapdeal have been mocking the company’s 6 October sale with campaigns of their own. Snapdeal on Monday ran a campaign with the tagline “For others it’s a big day. For us, today is no different.” Amazon has been running a sale from 4-6 October, calling it the “Mission to Mars” weekend. This change in buying habits of customers, who are now fast getting used to around-the-year discounts on e-commerce sites, is forcing offline retailers to react.

Amazon limits its delivery in Uttar Predesh by Rs 5,000

Amazon in a surprising turn of events has announced that it will not deliver any orders above Rs 5000 to any UP postal pin address.

The e-commerce giant has bought this news just before the series of festival which forthcoming months is carrying which could be in fact the peak of sales of the e-retailers like Amazon. The company invest a lot in logistics and works hards on making the system of delivering the products at the right place in the right time but due to the fake i.d’s and just-for-fun orders, company is not just losing its time but also a lot of money.

Screenshot from 2014-09-25 16:28:58

The reason for this is the fake orders and malpractices a few customer are associated with. The just-for-fun orders are the one which are the primary reason for this bold step to be taken by Amazon. The problem is not just faced by Amazon but Flipkart, Snapdeal and other big online retailers are also facing the same complexions while delivering for Uttar Pradesh.

Anyways, if you live in U.P. postal code region then you have to say ‘bye’ to expensive online deliveries.
