Snapdeal’s “The advertising tools will help our over-two lakh strong seller community simplify their business journey and boost overall revenue as more users discover their products.”
The company realized that many small sellers don’t have the bandwidth or knowledge about promoting their products. Hence, this advertising platform will enable those sellers to stand out minus the hassle.
“Engaging with sellers at various points of their business journey, we’ve realized that lack of marketing expertise or investments for elaborate promotions are some of the recurring concerns for their business.
