The company also started to organize a ‘Social Media Day Event’ in 2016 and Digital Marketing Day every year since 2018. After the nationwide lockdown in 2020, Digital has become the first choice media for many businesses and that made my business a diverse platform for local business says, Shruti.

With all the commitment and hard work, the company was recognized and received an Award of “Distinguished Digital Leader” at the Digital Marketing Leadership Summit 2018 organized by XIME, Chennai. The company was selected ‘10 Most Promising Digital Marketing Companies to Watch in 2021’ by The Global Hues Magazine Vol.1, Issue 11, August 21, and as ‘The 20 wonderful workplaces to shape your career’ by The CEO Story magazine, October 21. In addition, the team was invited as Mentor by Techstars in Startup Weekend, Surat held in the year 2018.

Unique selling proposition/ competitive advantage:

The responsibility Shruti took in the year 2020 during lock down in campaigning for a school to put forward the pain of teachers in online teaching made the company gain popularity in the market. In addition, as a leader, she also introduced a policy to use the word “team member” instead of the term employee, which restored equality and created a strong working unit in the company.

Challenges faced during the journey:

Nationwide lockdown in the year 2020, managing the home, child, and business simultaneously was mentioned as the major challenge faced by Shruti. After her MBA, she chose to detach the ties with her father’s factory and decided to start her career along with her husband. Overcoming many ups and downs before and after COVID-19, Shruti, and her team are now in the 9th year of successful running.

Advice for women entrepreneurs:

“I just want to say to young women entrepreneurs that if I could achieve a small milestone then you too can achieve. Keep yourself grounded and you will achieve new heights,” were the exact words of Shruti.
