impressive……i would also like to add it here is…if a retailer wishes to excel out in this new era, it is very important for him or it to find out that “how much lazy a customer is and how much lazy he can become.
Great article. I would however also love to hear how small sized companies can leverage on the mobile marketing trend to spread the word for their products and services. Or do you think only the giants can make full use of this new trend to scale greater heights?
yes excellent RAJITA CHAUDHURI,,,thanks for this useful article

Your examples are as always exclusive and motivating Rajita Maam. Had tried to get admission in your college but failed due to finance issues.
I am from Ahmedabad, working as IT Manager in Dubai but always interested in teaching and development and thus have plans to have an institute of my own in home town for IT.
Would love to hear a success story from the founder and boosters, The Chaudhuris’s, in regards to foundation and success of IIPM.
Your subject write up in Bangladesh Brand Forum has given me clear insight feeling to work with our brand. I felt it was really worthwhile for my time reading your write up. Hope to see more write up from you which will give us some glimpse of innovation, brand and marketing.

The article is great madam…but it would be very interesting to have your views of marketing in rural India where www is a big mystery till yet
I am not good in English, but i can understand your article because you write a good article with easy words. Thanks madam.
I am an intern at HSBC bank.This morning I came to office knowing i have nothing to do except for sitting around.I found the copy of branf forum.Your coloum heading ‘Look what a good idea can do” was very inspiring. Me and my frnds started a event managment firm long back. But maintaining all study & business was though job. Your writting gave the boost to follow my dreams again. I have decided to pursue the plans I made when i was in univetsity. In the end from bottom of my heart thank you very much.
Mam September 11, 1906: Gandhi begins the non-violent protest movement in South Africa. Before Mahatma Gandhi used non-violent tactics to kick the British out of India, he was working for the British Army stationed in South Africa. In South Africa, Gandhi was treated poorly for being a man of color and denied the right to vote by a newly passed South African law. Gandhi first tested his theories of non-violent protest at a September 11, 1906 gathering to protest the treatment of Indians living in South Africa.
its time for the WEST to learn from the MAsters..

YES OBVIOUSLY BUT KEEP IN MIND TO OVERESTIMATE OF POWER MAY BE HARM FULL BUT CHANCE OF SUCCESS IS MORE
M motivated.. thanku mam
yes.. very true.. also hard and determined work doesnt guarantee you success.. but it definitely gives you confindence to overcome the obstacles..
This is a good article.
this is the gud thot
I think this is a logically written and a very usufull article on business i have gone though in recent past. Can u suggest something similarly on network marketing business itself in INDIA.if you don’t mind ,you can mail me as i am searching some good post on it for long .
The same formula applies to all buesiness formats, whenther it is a branded product or unbranded product. Go ahead.
Personal touch is also must in marriage 🙂 wht d u say RAJITA ???????

YES it is very true that WORDS – LIVE FOREVER The words are very significant and even only one person could change the world .This word ‘intuition’ is beautiful ,but we are given tuition everywhere, the other word, ‘tuition’; tuition meanssomebody else is giving it to us,That tuition is to repress our intuition. we are given tuition. It means something from the outside being forced upon us, and intuition means something coming from our innermost core. And if we are conscious, then instinct plus awareness is equal to intuition. Then for the first time we have found our words within ourself and now Intuition is our library, our real university, and then we don’t need any scripture, we don’t need any guide, our inner light is enough to lead us to the effective words and those are the words which make an advertisement. Sometimes witty, sometimes crisp, sometimes direct, sometimes funny, never boring ,more memorable.
Business could be marketing to some extent but to prosper in long run, one has to build good reputation, only marketing won’t help.
Rajita must hv drank sprite before this statement 😀 😀 😀

The CEO is a good mechanism, but not a good master. It can serve you if you are the master and the CEO is the servant. But if the servant becomes the master and starts ruling over you, that is the state of insanity, can ruin even a great empire… What is CEO? It is all borrowed, and borrowed from different sources – from the his past experiences , from the other organizations , from the scholars , from the computer , from the libraries. Sometime even depends on his peons by sitting in glass showcases , His hunger is insatiable; it goes on swallowing all kinds of information. That information may be contradictory and impractical . The CEO all decisions should be on seen basis not on hearing basis .Who’s next? Is not the question ,Question is what practical source he is using with his organization to continue to prosper
CEO OR CIO OR CFO…THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR..u have to tak ur own initiatives !!

wow!!!!!! more than awesome
YES IT IS TRUE …KNOWLEDGE ABOUT CULTURAL NUANCES AND ETIQUETTES GOES A LONG WAY IN ENSURING THE SUCCESS OF YOUR BUSINESS Because all the cultures,the BUSINESS exists for the individual, the nation exists for the individual.For example:If you need a Host for your business and if you are Keeping only Politicians, then failure is sure to come,because some business need Butchers only and, some professions needs Surgeons only.
adaptability has been an oldest theory fr survival which is nw the mantra in mrktng………..
soory but i don`t belive in this i means by fittest is the product quality, quality stands always,but markting vanished in just somtime when turth comes over, “This survival of the fittest, implies multiplication of the fittest.”
business teach us to sell product but unfortunately most of the business mens and womens sell themselves in the process of selling products.
Well Rajita !!
Steve jobs is cetainly a game changer on tech world, whatever he do world watch. and now the expectations are high and will surely wait what’s in his mind to fight with Android… Lots of excitement expected, and Shareprice on Nasdaq will defenetly go on uptrend…
nice blog mam…..
Modern consumerism is more sensible on customization.Prioritization of the customers has become the cardinal point of interest; that is the value added service with the product. Self entity idolization that injects more value to them. That is the subtle marketing technique to win the heart.
Shahrukh’s baby (KKR), Is basically more focused on branding and marketing instead of real cricket. They launch campaign for cheer leader’s, coach and all sideline activities. Shahrukh must understand that this nation is a cricket crazy nation, and if he really want to give a big boost for brand KKR he must incourage the true cricket in KKR. avoid controversies and focus on game.
very rare case success is behind best players, for e.g. take the case of KKR in IPL
Well, The business is marketing. The headline is impressive. I can say success of any team can not be guaranteed by best players. It is depend how much every player contributing on team sprit. Well this was proven in the IPL1, when the team RR won the title without so many best players and the team KKR defeated instead of having best players on its radar.
Rajita !! your article is good as you not include the failure of Ganguly to not get sold in auction.
The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.Teamwork: Simply stated, it is less me and more we.It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.A group becomes a team when each member is sure enough of himself and his contribution to praise the skills of the others.I love the humanity… to see the faces of real people devoting themselves to a piece of music. I like the teamwork. It makes me feel optimistic about the human race when I see them cooperating like that.
kk…. mamm i promise to follow ur words
Kashyap okm maam…………..we don’t……………..
Comparing parenting of kids` stages and that of marketing stages is really nice.

Rajita, its really good to see your new year resolution and impressive as well. I made one upword sentence for my new year resolution ; Think –> Dare –> and ACHIEVE in this year.
Happy and a rocking new year to you.
all about public relationship….by sales man…
I don`t believe Exactly this , I my opinion business is all about Service. How good you service , which customer get easily and Without any Mistake or defect , or he can easily move on to others……..

Simplest things how it wil work, u told in simplest manner, thanku ma’am
A man who trusts himself comes to know the beauty of GIVING — comes to know that the more you trust yourself, the more you are GIVING the more you are in a state of GIVING (letgo) , the more you are settled and serene, the more you are calm, cool and quiet.Existence understands only GIVING…….GIVING is the greatest secret.
I m student of iipm del.. Business is nt marketing rather marketing is a part of business..if u analyse the word marketing it means place for trade of commodities (economics) and for a layman it means a place where sellers and buyers meet..i disagree wd both the concepts because acc. To me online shopping contradicts wd both of them as no place is req… business in broader sense has four pillars finance..manpower..operations..and trading (marketin)..without capital..hr..operations..business is incomplete..so marketing is a part of business and nt the complete business process..forgive me if i sound diff..
God bless u.
your story is throwing light on the future macro economic perpective.can u also throw light specificly on new emerging entreprenurial trends or the perspective business options with focus on these tier two and tier three economic centres. ur such move will provide direction to me and other person who are residing in small towns n dreaming to become modern millonaire.thnks
My Dear, Rajita, as you are fully aware, many, many years ago India was the business hub of the world, untill, through our misfortune, we became poor, however, my point is, how ever we develope our business ideas and increase our wealth, how are we going to prevent it from being taken away from us, or stop our people giving it to our competitors..?
The more you cling to money, the poorer the world becomes because of your clinging you loose your Royalness, because money is multiplied if it is always moving from one hand to another hand. In English we have another name for money which is more significant — it is “currency.” That simply indicates that money should always remain moving like a current. It should always be on the move from one hand to another hand. The more it moves the better.There are many kinds of Richness, and the man who is rich because of money is the lowest as far as the categories of richness are concerned. Let me say it in this way: the man of wealth is the poorest rich man but not Royal man.We have been distracted into unnatural motivations: money, prestige, power.Fame comes easier if you are destructive.The very ambition for money is going to destroy your…Royalness A man who is after money will become destructive, because money has to be robbed, exploited; it has to be taken away from many people, only then can you have it. Power simply means you have to make many people impotent, you have to destroy them — only then will you be powerful, can you be powerful.
It is True That your next billion consumers will not come from the biggies, but small towns that have quietly grown while no one was noticing.it has infinite possibilities
@mahendra mehta i agree what u said but at the end when u said ” but small towns that have quietly grown while no one was noticing.it has infinite possibilities” r u sure that small towns r growing????
@MEETH, I am pretty sure, you could find out… I have lived in dozens of representative small towns and I have seen the world. …. growing
You can say yes to anything you want — and, more importantly, no to anything that sounds too good to be true. Your willpower is legendary, but when it’s backed up by energy like this, you’re unstoppable!
is it really that easy mam ?? i guess to not know something is a sin in present time. Isn’t it ???
