An Interview with Kulbhushan Kalia, Co-Founder and CEO of aveJana.com
Q1. Welcome Kulbhushan! It’s really great to begin the talk. Starting now, we would request you to introduce your brand ‘aveJana’ to our readers?
Ans. ‘aveJana’ is a SaaS platform that enables eCommerce stores to automate their Product Ratings and Reviews generation just like Amazon, Flipkart etc. Our signature InMail Technology generates up to 9x more reviews. Our 3SEO technology helps drive more qualified traffic to eCommerce stores, improving conversions and sales.
Q3. How did you make the entire execution and, what are the services offered by aveJana?
Ans. I carried out a survey in India on the Shopping Behavior of Online Shoppers and found that almost 97% of online shoppers said they read reviews before buying a product online. In fact, even those who do not shop online read reviews to find out more about a product before buying.
I realized that most visitors leave a website without buying anything, if there are no product reviews. In fact reviews are so important that ‘Amazon’ now shows even global reviews of global products on its Indian website. This is because they realize that reviews help customers make up their mind faster and better.
This got us thinking and we came up with the idea of aveJana Reviews. We want to empower each eCommerce store owner globally to generate as many reviews as possible so that they can improve their conversion rate and sales. Today, aveJana is generating an amazing amount of reviews and has started finding good traction from eCommerce store owners from across the world. We have eCommerce store owners signing up from the US, Israel, UK etc. and of course India.
Q5. What have been the benefits brought by digital marketing in your business?
Ans. Our entire marketing effort is driven by digital. Our clients are eCommerce store owners, who spend most of their time on digital platforms. So for us digital is the marketing medium.
Q7. Let us know your plans to connect to more & more customers in the upcoming years?
Ans. Keep on innovating and exciting customers. They will be your fans and loyalists. Innovative and unique sweepstakes have worked for us. We run these offers for INR 0.
Whether it’s the Batman vs. Superman premier invites or meet and greet with Alia Bhatt and Hrithik Roshan, a trip to Las Vegas or a ticket to a coldplay concert in Abu Dhabi. These are the experiences that money can’t buy.
Q9. 3 of the elements that contribute most towards the Startup success in the Indian ecosystem; what are they?
Ans. Getting the unit economics right, having a strong competitive advantage and the timing of the product launch. The Indian market is still very nascent so first find out whether the market is ready for your product or not. Or ensure that your product has a global appeal.
