“The journey started as a normal one but as time flew i reached to the minimum level of its best. As i was surfing the internet i found some link and people who are into this line. Some of my friends are also helping hands for me to find different links in the same field.” — Prayag told The Assam News
He started to post his product ads in facebook and instagram page and within a week prayag got his first order of Casio G-shock and he simply went and took the advance of 50% by promising the customer that the other 50% will be collected after delivering the product and this way he started his journey with his startup ‘Brand Lovers’.
“As i am not from a family having business background, so i don’t have any idea of business and there is not much support from my family but my friend(kasturi das) who helped and supported me in the starting of this business” — Prayag added.

He takes 100% payment from the customers who place their order from all over India(except Guwahati). And for the Customers of Guwahati(enterprise is based) he takes 50% advance as confirmation of the product and other 50% can be given at the time of delivery by checking the product.And the most inspiring fact in this story is that Prayag, the founder and CEO of ‘Brand Lovers’ himself goes to deliver the products within Guwahati.Even though he doesn’t have a proper website, he takes most of the orders through whatsapp and facebook.This story shows how a simple idea and strong will can lift oneself to a greater path.Prayag is looking for more opportunities to do more tasks in this domain. That’s really inspiring.
