A little strange request but comes from very serious people. do you know any one who wants to become an entrepreneur…is a failed entrepreneur… Is looking for an idea?. A set of tech guys have an idea that they want to execute but can’t leave their jobs. Sll are senior execs with MNCs. They will bank roll it.

Has anyone tried tracking offline sales in GA, let’s say a lead was generated by Adwords or Facebook Ads and post which the consumer calls after a week and converts into a paying customer. How would you map this into a FB conversion into the funnel, another scenario would be a customer pays 10% online to book a table at restaurant and 90% in a restaurant post his meal. What is the best way to track this in E-Com funnel?

Over a discussion, I was asked this question: What are some way in which WhatsApp can monetize?

Here are my thoughts:

WhatsApp founder is very much against an ads in WhatsApp. So that rules out any form of ad based model.

My suggestion is starting their Apis and making it paid only. Here are a few details it could have:

1. Find if the user is on WhatsApp or not.
2. Have a business name based identity – not just phone number
3. Can send message and get response when the message is delivered, and read.
4. Users can reply to these messages just like a normal chat
5. Businesses can have a support kind of system, where they can delegate it to different support exec similar to support tickets or support chat.

Use Cases:-
1. Transactional SMS:- ecommerce (sends about 3-4 sms per trans), Banks, etc – WhatsApp can replace transactional sms as we know it. It comes with more features, and can serve the same purpose.

2. Support system – Rather than having a web chat plugin, or support number, businesses can take support requests via WhatsApp.

Pricing: Price per active user per month
0 – 500 – Free
500 – 5000 – some price – e.g. $10
5000 – 50000 – some price – e.g. $75
and so on.

A big e-commerce company like Flipkart would be spending a lot on just sending SMSs to their customers, which is just a one side messaging.

With this, they would be able to save, 1/3rd their monthly SMS cost, easily.

The potential can easily be more than $3 billion/annum and grow over the years.

What do you think about this? What are the pros and cons of this model?

Hey Guys,

I am looking for a solution to this problem. I have around 3 terabytes of Social Media Data, scraped from top social networks.

I want to classify it and then make use of the facts in the posts for customer prediction.

So as an example, I have around a million mentions from fb and twitter about flipkart’s big billion dollar sale. I want to classify this data and predict how many of these customers will actually make a buying decision in the next big billion sale based on the posts they made in the past.

Please suggest the tools and algorithms I would need to study for doing this. This is good data science problem :)

Hey folks,
1)Can a startup be established with integrated payment gateway and logistics support from a service like zepo or any other alternative…Is it advisable to go with it ? Or is it good to go with separate gateway and logistics service provider .
2) once we clock sufficient numbers… how is the transition done away from pre opted gateway and logistics? And more importantly transition of listed products into our own self handled website from the one which was hosted by a service provider?
