Internship Description

IBO has two core customer groups i.e. Professionals (B2P) and Home Owners (B2C). India is not a DIY market but DIFM, where the home-owner depends on the professionals for Material purchase/guidance and for Labor.

Our core B2C segment has a tight home improvement budget for their small-medium size row-house or an apartment, i.e. 750-2000 sq ft. Nearly half of them give Material + Labor contract to B2P, while the rest prefer to purchase materials themselves (Labor only B2P contracts). Through their lifetime, their needs include a new house purchase, existing home renovation and maintenance related repair jobs.

While B2C ticket size is one-third of B2P orders and their repeat is also low, B2C benefits the most from modern shopping experience (non-existent in India unlike US). It is also the most profitable cohort for IBO. Hence, it critical to attract a critical mass of B2C to IBO to drive sustainable business model in their vicinity.

This role will focus on identifying and executing ideas to acquire B2C customers for IBO.
