A First-of-its-kind exclusive Fashion Store for men

Co-founded by Shyam Jivnani in the North Indian town of Rajput, Gujarat, Soni Fashion is a store that’s the first of its kind in the part of the country. For the past 20 years, Soni Fashion has reigned as the top men’s fashion store in Gujarat.

After building an unparalleled reputation of being the go-to store for affordable men’s accessories, housing 5000+ products across 40+ categories, Soni Fashion has now expanded its territory, venturing into women’s accessories as well.

With the introduction of the concept of Digital India, and the rise of major mobile network services offering mobile data at much cheaper prices, the number of mobile internet users has multiplied exponentially in just a few years!

Over the course of the pandemic, Shyam witnessed the way online and mobile shopping became a habit among consumers and realized how the world around him was changing. He saw how his own audience was becoming accustomed to mobile shopping, and understood that just selling on Facebook and Instagram or offering a mobile responsive website alone won’t make the cut.

Challenges: Stepping into the Unknown

  • A time-consuming arduous affair

Building an app with a third-party app developer is one of the options merchants tend to go with when they decide to go mobile. However, it usually makes for a tedious process that’s not easy on the pocket, and ends up being a time-consuming affair. Shyam unfortunately had to go through the same with his previous service provider, and was extremely dissatisfied with what he got out of it as well.

  • An Underwhelming Result - A Mobile Optimized Website in place of an app

Soni Fashion’s first stint at developing a mobile app didn’t go as well as Shyam had expected. After going through numerous hoops to find an app developer, he ended up having a poor experience and an app that offered only web view. Frustrated Shyam was back to square-one, in search for an app builder which would be easy to setup and light on the pocket. Soni Fashion’s online store is a one-man show and it was evident that Shyam was time strapped. Hence, finding a good platform that had good customer support was key to him.

  • Driving App Adoption

Soni fashion has a rich legacy of being the only store that caters to men’s fashion for almost 20 years. The store established its online presence almost 4 years ago, and has over 50,000 loyal customers. Getting his customer base to download and use Soni Fashion’s mobile app seemed like a daunting task for Shyam.
