Not only that, Ami has also been donning the hat of a Visiting Faculty at NMIMS for taking up a subject on Social Media Marketing for their students. The Lifestyle Portal is proud to share with you our latest feature with Ami and her dream to empower women entrepreneurs digitally.
How did it all begin?
Having realised that women in our country had some fantastic business ideas but very little knowledge on how to promote their brand effectively, Ami wanted to tap into this space. With the aim of providing these women entrepreneurs a skill on promoting their work on the digital platform, she launched Socialize Store in September 2015.
Ami had a fantastic business model to launch her company the SocializeStore. She shares, “Being a start-up myself, a barter system worked wonderfully for me mainly because it helped me in reducing my cost, it helped me in getting a required product and service and also it was a fantastic way as a collaboration model to grow mutually.”
Ami shares, “One of the challenges I faced was to break the myth that women and technology don’t go hand in hand. But I have taken up this challenge to dispel this myth completely by helping women on how to use their smartphones effectively, how to use their computers and how to promote and brand them effectively on the digital platform.”
This she feels has helped women realize that the myth is only in their mind and that with dedication and patience they could also easily develop the art of going hand in hand with technology.
What makes SocializeStore so unique?
Its ability to deliver the digital knowledge in the most simple form which can be understood even by a layman and cost effectiveness is the main USP according to Ami and she aspires to share this knowledge to as many women entrepreneurs as possible.

Future plans with SocializeStore
According to Ami, “Women entrepreneurs in various sectors have been immensely successful in dispelling the myth that they cannot handle businesses as confidently or assertively as men. However, I did see that with social media many women developed cold feet and so with SocializeStore I intend to dispel this myth.”
With Socialize Store, Ami wants to pass this knowledge of social media to every woman out there and help them reduce their dependency on various external sources thus make them become confident and independent individuals.
