The century-old traditional market of Chandni Chowk in Delhi has taken a high-tech step by establishing a firm online presence with the help of Google and its partner HostGator. The market now comes alive onscreen by offering buyers a chance to use the internet to further explore their businesses, contact them, and place orders with a few clicks of their mouse.
Google, with its partner HostGator had started an exercise last year to enable small and medium businesses of India to establish an online presence. The exercise, known as India Get your Business Online, received an excellent response. More than 150,000 businesses across 7,850 cities have launched their websites within the past 13 months.
With more than 137 million Indians using online services at present, Google’s service offers both small and medium sized businesses to expand their market and establish a local and national presence in a very cost-effective manner. Chandni Chowk is a legendary market with thousands of traders trading in a wide range of products and services in wholesale and retail.
Google and its partner HostGator contacted all businesses in this iconic Delhi market and made free websites for their businesses, which are now listed on their very own website www.chandnichowknowonline.in. Currently, more than 2,500 small and medium businesses have their own sites listed at this website, and interested viewers need to visit a single website to locate several businesses listed under different categories.
While each listed business gets an opportunity to get increased exposure in the market, potential buyers can now browse through all websites mentioned under a specific category for a wider choice. India has more than 47 million small and medium businesses, and Google hopes to get at least 500,000 of them online in coming times to help them expand their business through the internet.
At present, you can explore the narrow and winding lanes of Chandni Chowk from the comfort of your home or office, and contact interesting dealers after visiting their websites. You literally have the entire market at your fingertips. On the other hand, you can also establish your own online identity through this program.
