               Now that Cupid has hung his boots, let’s shift our focus on to the next big event coming up i.e International Women’s day(March 8th).

Why should I focus on this?

Women’s Day is celebrated internationally on 8th March every year. It is an occasion to value the remarkable role of women in our society. The occasion has only increased traction from time to time since its inception and media tends to promote all the content related to the same.As we approach International Women’s Day on March 8th consider creating feminist/female-power themed designs your buyers will be proud to wear.

What does the data say?

Feminism, women’s rights, Female relationship niches proved to be a good bargain on our platform. Last year we saw a huge spike in these niches in the period of Feb10th-Mar 10th, our sales increased by almost 30%. Another interesting fact is that our returns rate is considered very low when the buyer is a female and what is the more appropriate time to sell these themes?

Put on your thinking hat, conjure some interesting designs and take advantage of the opportunity!!

Design Suggestions:

You can also target people with designs emphasising the female gender in relationships

 

Targeting Suggestions:  Use the Hashtag #PressforProgress in your ad content. This is the theme of this year’s women’s day and you can capitalize the buzz around this hashtag for your sales.

Please note that this audience segmentation can work well for designs making the audience proud of their feminine nature.

For Female oriented relation designs,





Since the time we have thought of STAR seller model, we have given utmost importance to one thing i.e Seller delight. To consolidate the same we have already rolled out features like Drop in Goal quantity, Next day shipping for matched return orders, Daily payouts, Abandoned Cart Recovery, Customer email lists etc.

Adding to these significant changes, we have made some additions to “Returns Dashboard”, for the campaigner to understand the effect of returns in payouts and the cash flow of the payments.

Returns Dashboard gives you the overview of the effects caused by returns in your payouts. Let’s have a look at the various tabs available on the dashboard.

The Homepage of Returns Dashboard looks like below when you click on the returns tab in your campaigner dashboard.

It gives you the overview of returns stocked in the warehouse campaign wise along with the 1-click relaunch button to make the relaunch easy.

There are five separate tabs to understand the nuances of returns

Returns in stock: As the name suggests, this tab gives you the overview of your total returns that are present in our warehouse.This is useful to plan your returns reuse according to the available stocks.

Returns Dispatched:  This tab gives you the overview of return products which are dispatched as a reuse and the delivery status of that reused product.


Returns Adjustments: This Tab gives you the overview of adjustments in payouts that happened due to returned products.

The “Total payable amount” in this tab indicates the amount that is payable to MDS from campaigner’s side due to returns. This tab gets updated every first week of the month and this gives you the logic behind deductions from payouts.

The sum of all the Debit amounts is the total payable amount.                                                                                                  In the Invoice ID of the amounts, you can see there are certain codes likes RD, RR, LT.

RD is the invoice ID generated for Returns Deduction.
RR is the invoice ID generated for Returns Reuse and this would come under Credit amount
LT is the invoice ID generated for Items which are Lost in Transit i.e Lost when returning to warehouse from buyer and this also would come under Credit amount.

Returns Invoice Settlements:  This Tab gives you the overview of the invoices of the settlements that happen due to returns or simply the statement of deductions in the payouts.

The total settled amount is the amount that is deducted from the payouts due to returns and the remaining payable amount is the remaining amount that is to be paid by the campaigner to MDS.

Credit Adjustments:  This Tab gives you the overview of payments to be made to campaigner after all the settlement of deductions from returns.This Tab gets activated once the remaining payable amount becomes zero and the amount that is to be paid to the campaigner after all the returns deductions, reuses and Lost in Transits; is generated as Credit Invoice.

We are working on simplifying the Returns Dashboard, so expect more changes to this dashboard which will enable you to understand the cash flow very easily.Hopefully, this would ease out your returns management and therefore your profitability from our platform.

It’s time to experience the month of cupid. Yes, the month of February has finally arrived!! What it brings along is the marketable Valentine week!!

What’s in it for ME?

The celebration of Valentine’s Day in India began to become popular following the economic liberalisation.

The day may be all about love, gifts, purchases and splurging, but if you are a little discreet, this is an opportunity to make money too, and how! The V-Day market has reached 22000 crore market in 2014 and has been only growing from time to time.

According to the latest Mastercard Consumer Purchasing Priorities Survey, more than half of Indian consumers plan to go out for a meal on Valentine’s Day (55 percent), and more than a third plan to spend time with their loved ones by going to the movies (42 percent).

Among the Indian consumers surveyed, a fifth (21 percent) plan to buy a gift for their loved ones on Valentine’s Day, on an average spending close to Rs 1,500.

Valentine’s Week has its own significance among the youngsters. During this week each day is celebrated in a different way.

  • Rose Day – 7 February
  • Propose Day – 8 February
  • Chocolate Day – 9 February
  • Teddy Day – 10 February
  • Promise Day – 11 February
  • Hug Day – 12 February
  • Kiss Day – 13 February
  • Valentine’s Day – 14 February

‘’There is no darkness so intense that cannot be overcome by light. My Dream Store became that light of my life’’, says Arjun.

”3 months ago my financial conditions dipped drastically and I was forced to leave the animation course I was pursuing. I was in utter dismay. It was then when My Dream Store, truly a Messiah in disguise walked in into my life.’’ recollected Arjun.

‘’Quitting the animation course wasn’t easy. I was left goalless. The feeling daunted me so bad that on my way back after quitting itself I began searching for ways to earn money online on youtube. That’s when I came across a video on selling at My Dream Store.’’ said Arjun

Arjuns inquisitiveness pushed him to research more. He stumbled upon stories of our best selling campaigners. Their huge earnings strengthened his desire to pursue T-shirt selling at My Dream Store and then began his journey about which he proudly boasts now!

‘’When I started, I had absolutely no knowledge about Facebook advertising. Even after watching numerous videos, I found myself stuck. It seemed like a race, too difficult for me to enter. But I had nothing to lose. I had nothing anyways apart from heavy loans to pay. So trying this was the only option I was left with’’ Arjun said

‘’I took the leap of faith and dived into this completely. I started by browsing through each and every tutorial I found online regarding Facebook advertising. When I gained enough knowledge about the basics, I created my first Facebook page and launched 14 to 15 designs from it. I also spend INR 4000 for advertising those designs but I got zero sales and failed drastically.I lost hope. But the burden of loans on me and my family was way too much for me to give up so soon. If I resorted to a meager job I would need 5 to 6 years to pay off my loan which wasn’t an option at all’’  said Arjun as he recollected those days.

‘’I began introspecting what was going wrong. I realised I was hurrying with launching campaigns rather than concentrating on learning the art of Advertising. I gave up campaigning for a while and spent days learning it. When I got back to campaigning with the required knowledge, Bang on! I had my first success! I could see my baby steps towards my dreams showing results. This was my first income, I was elated. It strengthened my enthusiasm. Sleep and hunger were just two words that rang no bell in my ears for a while. All I was concerned was about new niches and new designs. I remember watching You Tube tutorials even in my dreams ’’ happily chuckled Arjun.

‘’Spending on advertising campaigns was bit of an issue for me initially. But my brother and sister donated their pocket money and helped me in every small way they could. Thats where I gathered my initial investment from. Once I started getting payouts I began investing that amount on advertising.Now I am finally in a position to say that I am earning well enough and all my hard work has paid off’’ proudly states Arjun.

‘’My Dream Store has totally changed my life. The MDS team treats us just like family members. It’s a pleasure working with their team. Now that I have begun my journey I am confident of achieving a lot more in the coming months and I am sure I will be able to repay my loan very soon.

All I want suggest to the other campaigners is that if a student like me can turn into an entrepreneur within months then anyone can. My aim now is to to convert this six digit income into an eight digit income‘’ concluded Arjun.
