Open Talk @DSIM
An Interview with Anisha Dhar and Nupur Khanna, Founders of Eatonomist.com
Eatonomist specializes in calorie counted gourmet meals. They prepare meals under 300 and under 500 calories. They cook everything from scratch, the sauces, breads, dressings etc. It has an extremely easy to use website (www.eatonomist.com) where one might order their meal.
Q1. Hi, Anisha and Nupur. Welcome to DSIM. Let’s go to the earliest days of “Eatonomist.com”. How did it all get started?
Ans. We dealt with the corporate and peer pressure of staying fit for 7 years. We loved eating out and lunch was the highlight of our work day. That surely does tell you a lot about us. Everyday we would look out for healthy things to eat for lunch and end up finding the same 2 or 3 boring options.
We thought that it would be so great to have a place that would offer a new menu each day with healthy dishes that tasted good. We discussed it with family and friends, and then finally went ahead and booked a domain name.
Eatonomist is narrowing the gap between sinful eating and crash dieting. Working in a corporate made us realize that ‘healthy’ lunch options existing in the market were boring or not so healthy. We wanted to address the market that wanted to eat good food sans the calorific intake, so was born Eatonomist.
Q3. Anisha, how important is digital marketing to your overall marketing strategy?
Ans. As we are an online based food delivery portal, digital marketing plays a vital role. Now a days digital world has become so convenient and user friendly that huge market potential relies on digital marketing. We get business through different tools of digital marketing like through SEO, Social Media Marketing, Adwords.
Ans. 1) One should be through when it comes to research. To start something you should know as much as you of that field which is only possible through research work.
2) You should collect information and feedback before starting something. Researching after preparing a prototype is very much helpful.
3) Follow your dreams, follow your heart and never let anyone tell you that you are not good enough. Have some faith in yourself and the path to your dreams will suddenly become easier.
