Case Study 2 - Alok Dikshit

Today we will tell you about Alok Dikshit - an amazing influencer at apna!

Having tried his hand at many different professions like modelling, acting and almost everything under the sun, he had found his true calling in Business Development. He has been working as a BDM in Kredit Bee company for almost two years now. 

Alok had always nurtured the dream of starting his own business. During his time in Kredit Bee, he began ideating the plans for opening an ecommerce business. During his research, he stumbled upon the apna app on playstore. Soon he joined apna’s “Start Your Business” professional networking group and started connecting with like-minded people. Alok engaged with some entrepreneurs - Kishore Patra and Vijay Tripathi who also, at the time, were new to the app but had a proven track record of running successful businesses. Alok, from his regular interactions with them and other members of the Business group learnt the basics of business. 

He found practical answers to questions such as: How to get started, how to procure funding, how to market, how to judge competition and several other aspects of running a business. Alok’s determination and will to succeed combined with the power of professional networking helped him lay down the entire foundation for his men’s clothing website, ‘Dekho toh sahi’!

Alok and his enthusiastic connections often have planning discussions that go on till 4 AM. He will soon inaugurate this website! While most people during the lockdown spent their time complaining, Alok made use of his ‘locked in’ time and networked productively to power his dreams of entrepreneurship. 

Today, Alok is not only regarded as an influencer who guides people in their professional journeys, but also as a friend who is always eager to help any apna users in need of support or ideas. apna and Alok have been together for a year now and from a user, Alok has become one of the most popular influencers on the app and his professional network is stronger than ever.
