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?

From last two years many start-ups entered in to online grocery & deliver space now Paytm.Few days back ZOPNOW raised 10M$ and one more in that space raised 10M$ in days after ZOPNOW.

I feel regret when i hear about above related news. Because this space is very interesting to me, two years back i started my own startup #MyKiranaStore with two other people; which got incubated, seed funded and buried after 8 months. Probably only two names you had heard at that time are BigBasket & Godrej Natures Basket. I was completely failed to take MyKiranaStore to next level because of the following reasons. Which any founder should not do. So sharing some of my experiences for new start-up founders….

1. Not having right co-founders who didn’t believed in my dream 100%. (It’s my mistake bcoz i believed in them and accepted them to take some part of my dream)

2. I didn’t worked full time on it bcoz they told you are a techie so u no need to quit so we will quit and give us responsibility (along with the benefits). Neither they didn’t quit the job nor regularly went to incubation office where the hired team is working.

3. Good guys, made income out of start-up expenses

4. Said there is no space for online grocery bcoz of BigBasket and left when #MyKiranaStore burned most of its funds and didn’t showed up bcoz if they have to answer mentor and seed funder questions (Don’t forget; we are the guys shown the big gap/space in the market to incubator/investor)

5. Demanded more % when asked to work and in return asked me to buy their stake, if i want to run it smile emoticon

6. Stood alone, i ran the show for couple of months, tired of professional and personal responsibilities. Month end is very challenging to arrange the funds to team salaries. Lost team one after another, they knew i am not going to pay if they are here; very true. How many times we can convince; learning is greater than earning?

In this whole process i never turned down investor calls and emails. Whenever i got the opportunity, i explained everything to him and made him understood why we are at this position. Many thanks to him for understanding me and the support he gave at the last minute. Finally we came to a decision to put an end to a dream (https://www.facebook.com/MyKiranaStore?fref=ts).

Hope the new guys who are thinking to start their own will learn from this experience.

1. Work with the people who believed in you and your dream.

2. Don’t offer more to the investor what his investment deserves. Otherwise you will loose the control on your own baby.

3. Find a mentor who can tell you what is right and wrong; helps you to take better decisions.

4. Finally, don’t give up

All the best!! #MyExperience
