The journey from a successful Interior Designer to an entrepreneur
Post my graduation, I followed my passion and became an interior designer. I worked with an MNC for around 7 years. While I was on a successful career path, I always felt that something was missing. I was just 25 years old then and beaming with ideas, but did not know how to move forward. I met my husband in the year 2014 and we instantly connected. We bonded over our passion to build something larger for the community and realised our togetherness could be impactful to do something meaningful. We got married and decided to leave our jobs and start this company “Sajawat Bazaar”. The decision was not easy as both of us were doing well in our respective careers. But our core was connected to do something beyond ourselves.
Snapdeal is easy and simple to work on
Our comfort level with Snapdeal started right from the time we started our registration process. The ease of working with them boosted our confidence. Within a few hours of uploading, our products were listed and live. I vividly recall the joy when we received our first order. This was within 2-3 days of going live. The simplicity of the panel was important to us. Anyone can understand with the help of few clicks here and there.
The payments process on Snapdeal has been seamless
One of the best things that I have always appreciated about Snapdeal is that we have never had to take follow ups regarding payments. We always had a very smooth and hassle free payments process. This has really helped us to concentrate on increasing our product line and customer satisfaction. Focussing on the right things enabled us to grow our business at a good pace. We were processing 100 orders a day within 4-5 months of starting our business on Snapdeal. Today, we process 400+ orders. Our growth in the last one year has been 400%!
Our quest to empower the local artisans of the country
Our first office was set up in Jaipur and has now expanded to South as well. We are working hard to expand our business across 3 zones within the next 6 months which will actually enable more empowerment and employment to the small artisans in the various corners of the country. Our intent and goal is to showcase their products, give them visibility and the platform to grow.
Snapdeal has given me stability in life
Snapdeal has helped me live one of my biggest dreams- to have a house of our own. This to me has been really special. It has given me the stability and sturdiness of a settled life. All this is just because of Snapdeal as they gave a direction to our goals and enabled us to grow everyday. The constant support from Snapdeal has played a big role in who we are today. As a Business, we are not just committed to send good quality product to our customers, but we are on a mission to spread smiles.
