Myntra-LogoAbout the company

Headquartered in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, Myntra is an Indian e-commerce company of casual lifestyle and fashion products. It was founded by Indian Institute of Technology graduates in the year 2007 with a focus on personalization of gift items. However, in next 3 years, Myntra shifted its focus to the online retailing of branded apparel.

Myntra’s merger with Flipkart

The success rate of Myntra was high and in May 2014, merged with Flipkart in order to compete against Amazon which entered the Indian market in 2013 as well as other offline retailers like Reliance Retail, Aditya Birla Group, and Future Group.

The merger with the e-commerce giant, with the estimated deal of US $300 million (nearly INR 2,000 crore), the two companies were brought together to fight for its place in the Indian marketplace. This merger was influenced majorly by 2 common shareholders, Accel Partners and Tiger Global.

Myntra’s Initial Years

Being in the business of on-demand personalized gift items, Myntra was established by Vineet Saxena, Ashutosh Lawania, and Mukesh Bansal. During the initial years, it mainly operated on the B2B model i.e. Business-to-business. However, between 2007 and 2010, the online portal changed it to B2C and allowed customers to personalize products such as jigsaw puzzles, wine glasses, pendants, teddy bears, watches, calendars, mouse pads, mugs, and T-shirts.

The expansion of Myntra

By 2011, Myntra started to expand its catalog and included lifestyle and fashion products while moved away from personalization. The company tied up with numerous popular brands to showcase a wide range of latest merchandise from these brands. It offered products from 350 International and Indian brands by 2012. Soon after, the website saw the launch of the brand, Being Human, and Fastrack watches.

Till date, Myntra continues to operate and function independently so as to increase its market share from 50 to 70% of the market share. Recently, Myntra-Flipkart acquired Jabong too so as to be the king!

Business Objective of Myntra

The aim of Myntra is to help Indian customers stay fashionable by InMobi’s remarketing platform. The leading fashional and lifestyle mobile commerce app, Myntra, leveraged the InMobi remarketing platform in order to drive incremental sales from the app users across shopping times!

The objective of the company was:

  • To maximize the sales via mobile on the basis of reactivating dormant users, who hadn’t made a purchase in 7 days.
  • Also, the goal was re-targeting all mobile users on the basis of previous shopping behavior.

Strategies adopted by Myntra and InMobi

For reactivating dormant Myntra app users on android smartphones with ever-changing propositions that brought the best of Myntra to them, the strategies adopted were:

1. Segment based targeting by InMobi

On the basis of different segments like user-product affinity and the past purchase behaviour, InMobi targeted the specific segments of dormant customers. Following are the segments targeted by InMobi:

  • Demographic Segments

  • Merchandize Shoppers

InMobi also showed curated collections for shopping in full-screen floating, native, and interstitial banner formats.InMobi-1

2. Re-targeting all Myntra app users

In order to drive incremental sales from existing customers, Myntra along with InMobi re-targeted all the Myntra app users across iOS and android smartphones.

InMobi re-targeted all the app users with curated, and highly personalized product recommendations on the basis of previous shopping activity. Users were directly deep linked into the product detail page within Myntra’s app when they clicked on the ads. The retargeting campaign was then persistently optimized for performance gains.

The results achieved by Myntra through InMobi’s remarketing platform were:

  • $25 average order value (approximately Rs1,675)
  • More than 1,000 per day number of transactions
  • 7 ROAS (Return on Ad-Spend)
