This Corporate Professional started his side-hustle in the middle of the Lockdown with Bikry App
COVID-19 pandemic and frequent lockdowns are unusual situations that baffled many businesses and affected the jobs of corporate professionals. In the middle of a unique crisis, starting one’s business along with a professional commitment is an unfathomable dream.
However, Mr Lovish Johri, owner and keeper of LJ Midnight Store, took a step closer to buying his dream SUV car with his side hustle that he started with the help of the Bikry App. His business (LJ Midnight Store) began in April 2021 with the idea of launching an online midnight store in Noida that delivers daily and essential items at that particular time when no other offline store is available except 24*7, i.e., from 10 P.M. to 8 A.M.
In the lockdown situation, many people residing in Noida Extension suffered from the procurement of essential grocery items, especially during the night, which inspired him to start a Dropshipping business.
Being a full-time corporate employee, running an offline business was not easy for him. His first step was to set up a website to take online orders. He paid INR 35,000 to a website developer but didn’t receive a satisfactory outcome. Upon discovering the Bikry App, he created his website for free and made changes quickly without any technical knowledge.
He now receives at least 20 orders a day from his Bikry app website and has increased his income twofold during the time when his peers lost their jobs. After getting such a huge success, he plans to quit his job and utilize all his time and energy in the online grocery delivery business. He is also working on expanding the business in other locations outside Noida Extension to cover a wide range of audiences.
