LimeRoad For Men revolutionizes online shopping & style discovery for men
New Delhi, 2016: LIMEROAD, the largest content-meets-commerce lifestyle platform in India that revolutionized style discovery for women, today announced the launch of its new offering – LIMEROAD for Men.
LIMEROAD for Men is launching with 100,000+ style suggestions and products for men, in order to address a unique need gap – people care deeply about how they look, yet find it difficult to find what they love when shown millions of options. LIMEROAD’s unique community of 200,000+ scrapbookers together with their deep algorithms create for users, fresh, unique looks, every 30 seconds on the platform.
LIMEROAD for men includes 23 sub categories of apparel and accessories from over 250 Indian and International brands, together with tens of thousands of innovatively styled looks like “Style-like-bhai, shirts & sneakers, island style, cheeky graphics and minimal prints.”
This is a first for Indian men, who will now be able to look at their favourite stars, movies, sports heroes, as well as the latest trends in fashion and pick similar, affordable styles at a click – all thanks to LIMEROAD’s unique extensive community of stylists, called scrapbookers. As users keep repeating on LIMEROAD, the platform’s personalization algorithms kick in, thus automatically getting users closer to what they are likely to like the most. It is this content that drives the highest engagement and conversion rates in the industry – 13.5% for repeat users, and 7.5% for new users on the LIMEROAD app.
“Our mission is to build India’s most extensive discovery platform, driven by unique engaging content. We started out solving the problem first for women, and tackled the most fragmented of supplier and option ranges, enabling women to discover local and global trends like indie/ikat, gota patti, palazzos or fringes and botanical prints, pretty much as soon as they are first seen. All of this at super affordable prices. We will now bring this same discoverability to Indian men. We are ultimately democratizing fashion.” says Suchi Mukherjee, Founder & CEO, LimeRoad.
At launch, the internal team at LIMEROAD, 70% of who are men, were simply ecstatic. Says Prashant Malik, co-Founder & CTO, “I have spent the last 3 hours simply unable to do anything else but browse the platform. So glad we have launched LimeRoad For Men. Why should girls have all the fun?” Anuj VSN, LIMEROAD’s new CMO adds saying “We are solving a fundamental problem for men. We believe that at a macro level, men are getting more conscious about how they look, driven by local and global influences. And LimeRoad For Men is a delightful way of solving the problem.”
LimeRoad is the largest content-meets-commerce lifestyle platform in India. Launched over 3 years ago, LIMEROAD has raised $50 million to-date with Tiger Global, Matrix Partners India and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
