Attention. Attention. Attention.

Dear Owner

This is a secret message  

· Do you want more customers? Yes,

· Do you want more profits? Yes, Yes.

· Do you want more time for yourself? Yes, Yes, Yes,


. Have you come up with new ways of marketing? No.

· Have you found new ways of making more profits? No, no.

· Have you found new ways of making time for yourself? No, no, no.


· Customers are not loyal anymore. Agreed?

· Competition is increasing every day. Agreed?

. Margins on gold and making are going down. Agreed?

· Reliable vendors are difficult to find. Agreed?

· Staff is not good enough. You are constantly have to close the sales by yourself. Agreed?

· Customers are smarter, tougher, demanding all the time.

Life is tough inside the golden cage of your store.

There is dead inventory all the time

· Customers are asking “what’s new”.

· Staff is saying, Customer is TP–Time pass and no stock

· But really, in this Post covid season, anybody has free time to spend?

· Vendors are not dependable, like old times. Reminding you for payment all the time.

Truth is:

You are facing a lot of issues, but whom can you ask?

Whom can you trust with your problems?

Who can guide you, help you, support you?


You can’t ask your competitors?

You can’t ask your family?

You can’t ask your friends.

Bankers, of course, won’t lend you any money.


So, you are all alone, thinking, worrying, getting angry at everybody,

Losing your peace of mind and health?

And not sleeping well either?

So, what next?

So, is there a solution?

Is there a person like that who truly wants you to grow and be happy?

Is there a company who wishes the best for you all the time?

Trust worthy, reputed, experienced, performance oriented, deep industry knowledge, respected and proven?

Shivaram Sir’s ideas on marketing are all “emotional marketing ideas”. Ideas that worked for me.

Retail Gurukul and rather Shivaram ji is by far one of the ablest and professional persons I have met in a while. When we started, we had data but somehow we were not utilizing it in a better way to gain from the insights. The journey started with analyzing the data we were sitting on for years. We started as a pilot at the flagship store to see how we can achieve greater performance with data insights and other metrics.We took one step at a time and kept taking smaller steps to achieve more than 4 stock turn cycles in a year. It sounds unbelievable but it can be achieved if we take the right steps in the right direction. Last but not the least, I can say this with surety that Shivaram ji is that catalyst who can ignite the fire more and take the rocket higher in no time.
