TRHS is like some matrimonial portal, wherein it helps an Entrepreneur to find it’s to be customers.
One of the most difficult task in a business is to get leads, once you have got the right leads, you know the direction where you have to put efforts. People spend too much on acquiring leads, register themselves at sites like Indiamart, Quickr, etc and pay them good amount for registration, premium account, etc. And still you are not assured of right leads; you may get 100 calls a day but only few are relevant.
About Me – I launched a venture Startup4Startups-(S4S) just a month ago. Some of my services are
1) Idea generation
2) Developing & setting up business for new Entrepreneurs
3) Territory expansion
4) Cost optimization
5) Marketing & Promotion
6) IT support, web designing, content, etc
7) Management Outsourcing
Basically, we are B2B firm, this was to give you an idea about my background for better understanding of how TRHS did wonders for me.
One day I logged in and just came across a message of Mr. Bhupinder Singh on main chat room about his venture Preciousmoments.in. I checked it out and something clicked to me. I just connected with me and shared my views, suggestions, etc on his venture. We had a good one hour discussion, and then he became my first client from TRHS.
I had shared my failure few months ago through the post ‘How I Doomed my 1st Venture?‘ and then my phone started ringing, got numerous mails. The best part was I suddenly got connected with so many entrepreneurs, they shared their pain and challenges with me and today they all are potential clients for my business, so I have got right leads for free of cost. Also associated with some seasoned and successful Entrepreneurs, who today advice me when I am stuck somewhere.
Sai Kothapalle, a Rodinhooder contacted me just to appreciate my post. He works at Congnizant and has got 10 years of experience. One day, he asked me to refer him to some IT related startup. I instantly offered him to join my startup and provide IT support, he happily agreed and designed Maalgaadi.in (Not up yet) for one of my client. He is working on few more website of my other clients. I could not have able to afford a programmer, designer, etc but then through Rodinhoods, I got one of the best designers. Similarly, I got associated with Shouvik Dhar, founder of Edvento.com and he too is now one of my clients.
Yesterday, I commented on Jai Kumar’s article, mentioning about one of my services and just in few hours got a call from an Entrepreneur named Hari (Founder at calldriver.in) from Chennai and he was eager to expand his business to Mumbai using my services. Then, later I got three mails too from different Entrepreneurs inquiring about my services. We are in the first stage of discussion right now but the point here is I am getting relevant leads. And almost all the leads I got from TRHS turned into successful sale, which none of the lead generating channels can boast of.
This proves that TRHS is not just another community for Entrepreneurs, if you use it in a right way, it will do wonders for you. TRHS is one of the best things I came across in my life. I recommend strongly to every new Entrepreneur to join TRHS. Being a Rodinhooder Entrepreneur will always be an edge.
Asha, I just can’t thank you enough, for managing TRHS, promoting us and our Startups, encouraging us, motivating us and taking even our most stupid queries. Thanks a ton Alok, for creating such a wonderful community. People may not remember you for your ventures, wisdom, experience, etc but they will always remember you for TRHS!
