Giveaways and Ending Note
As mentioned above daraz currently has the campaign of 5 crore worth of discounts on 11 lakh products and a giveaway of 11 TVS Raider Motorcycles. The TVS Raider Motorcycle giveaway is also a highlight as, it is a new motorcycle on the market from TVS that recently went on Pre-Booking. This giveaway also is a factor that can attract various enthusiasts of the brand to spend on the website for various products.
As mentioned previously, the sale goes on for 24 Hours. In previous years, there were times when the products advertised during the sale were simply not on par. As a customer, this year it seems some of the products that have gone on sale are also not on par. The campaign and all is a great deal, but when some of the products being provided seem to be several years old, all the hype seems to not be that great.
Moreover, As a customer, there are always high expectations from a brand that has firmly placed itself as one of the leading online shopping outlets in the country. When scrolling through the website for the products, there are various products that seem very lackluster for the hype that 11.11 is trying to portray.
The pros of this years sale would be that the exclusive mobile phone Realme GT Neo 2 is being sold, and that generates alot of hype on phone enthusiasts on people who simply were looking for a new phone set. Furthermore, in previous years when daraz had started the Mega sale, there would be issues with load times and what not, but in recent years they have seemed to made fixes to that as well. This is indeed a great time for Nepalese online market. The daraz 11.11 sale is similar to the Cyber Monday sales that happen overseas, so, this is indeed something that we as a customer should support.
There have not been many complains this year, nonetheless, we hope that in coming years Daraz will be able to secure far more better products during the 11.11 mega sale event.
