Nikhil Rungta, added: “This is a new challenge and I am very excited as I get onto this new journey. I will be teeing off
with a new TV campaign based on the concept of ‘Try and Buy’. The new feature ‘Try n Buy’ initiated by Yebhi will be the game changer for the E-commerce category and will help in taking the category to the next level. The campaign came from a deep understanding of how consumers buy online and the fact that one of the biggest barriers to purchase is lack of touch and feel of the product. Now the consumer can order products through Yebhi.com and only buy after trying or checking out the product.”
“In the last few years Yebhi.com has built a great ecommerce business with a impressive catalog of products and best-in-class fulfillment, the third pillar they want to now strengthen is brand building. Having build brands like Yatra.com, Chrome and Youtube in India, this is tailor-made opportunity for me".
