  • Vibhu Arya, Head Strategic Partnerships, Snapdeal.com
    We initially thought that you could sell rural consumers a brand that is not very well known. However, people in rural India are very aspirational, and they want the best brands, just like consumers in urban areas. So we have to keep this in mind and offer them familiar brands, but at lower price points. This ensures they stay interested and competitive prices act as a hook for them.
  • Rahul Saigal, President, Geometry Global
    You don’t have to always think like a rural consumer to come up with an idea that is relevant for the rural consumer. We are all humans, and all of us think similarly, we behave and react very similarly to a specific type of input or stimuli. We try to change how people behave, and that is why we sometimes see campaigns struggle in rural India.Register Now
