It was predicted that the geeks would rule.
And it is so coming true. Long long ago ,much before personal computers really became personal , people used to say,be nice to the nerds and geeks ,you may just end up working for one someday. We all might.
And then came along the phenomenon that guides your fingers every minute of the day and your social connectivity is also thanks to one such geek.
So geeky ,he sweats profusely in situations most Indians would consider ordinary.
So why should classified advertisements be far behind?
Since we have Apps or ready to order links for everything under the earth today ,it becomes essential that Quikr becomes one too... not an also running App ,but a pioneer.
Quikr is a formidable force with classified advertisements. It has raised approximately USD 60 million through venture capital funds. So ultimately, that will ensure that we as consumers will have a better buying and selling experience.
So quikr next is here to help.
I will not call myself a geek ,but if can help it I would rather not call.
I love my smart phone. It is almost an appendage to my hand. And I am really adept at a texted conversation as compared to a phone stuck to my ear.
I mean who would want to call and mumble social niceties in the middle of the night?
People like me prefer to do their surfing and shopping in the dead of the night. That is why we pray desperately for 26 hour days. So imagine the ease.
All you need to do is download the quitk next app and start.
You can choose any thing you want and then decide on the price.
instead of having to call someone and request for details one can simply start a smart chat.
So when you chat you don't have to address the buyer or seller as "Aunty" or "Uncle". Yes , it happens only in Indian!
So once the social niceties are addressed , you can get right right ahead and discuss the price and tech specs of the object in question.
And then get down to what Indians do best. Bargain.
It is a wee bit embarrassing to bargain on the phone...all those around you might mock you.
But when you are chatting, its ok to bargain , no one but the buyer/seller you are chatting with will know.
So once the bargaining is done ,all that is left is discussing where /how the payment is to be made and how the object in question is to exchange hands.
And the best part is that you dont need to reveal your identity.
All in the dead of the night.
So cool for people like me.
Geeky aand nerdy but yet so cool.
Maybe, I will be able to find a buyer for my books.
Check out quikr and get the app of Quikr next.
