The Indian market has quickly shifted gears, opting for hyperlocal delivery channels to meet their needs. The demand for the hyperlocal model in the grocery market, which has always been considered the most difficult segment to break into, demonstrates its acceptance in our everyday lives and its transformation into a business reality. With the advent of several online grocery stores, e-commerce sites, and other distribution-based start-ups that have forged alliances with local neighborhood stores and supermarkets, hyperlocal delivery of groceries, fruits, and vegetables has accelerated. It has also assisted in the management of these stores by a younger generation that can adopt technology in their daily lives. Via intuitive smartphone applications, the in-store experience has now transformed into an in-hand shopping experience.
Any localized location, such as a neighborhood, a city block, or even the entire city, is referred to as hyperlocal. As a result, a hyperlocal startup is in the business of assisting other companies with last-mile distribution or product delivery through a marketplace-like site like Dunzo or Swiggy.
The growing number of startups and consumers’ preference for “on-demand delivery” have fueled the hyperlocal market in India. Hyperlocal firms in India have been able to link many local retailers with customers in the Hyperlocal space thanks to technology.
Small businesses have benefited from hyperlocal distribution, which has given them a much-needed boost. Only wealthy sellers with their fleet could previously deliver goods to their customers’ doorsteps. But, thanks to hyperlocal delivery systems and the simplicity of listing goods on marketplaces, almost any company can now do so.
If you want to sell your goods to many people, you will need to market them properly. The first step in this direction is to raise awareness of your store and all the products you offer. Make sure your customers are aware of your distribution services next. This will reaffirm their buying decision and encourage them to place an order with you.
You’ll need a strong hyperlocal marketing strategy to do so, as well as increased exposure for your business. Since most delivery services have a delivery radius of up to 50 kilometers, you must make every effort to actively promote your business within that area.
SME’s benefit from hyperlocal distribution models because it creates a win-win scenario. Retailers can register their company on the appropriate platforms and gain access to new opportunities. They don’t have to spend money on developing and maintaining a separate app. The distribution is also handled by the aggregators’ delivery partners. As a result, it becomes easier for them to expand their market with limited investment.
Sellers are now venturing into on-demand delivery of food, medications, stationery, personal care products, and home services, among other things like grocery. Even large pharmacies, such as Apollo, have established a standardized omnichannel strategy for fulfilling orders hyper-locally with their local locations.
The eCommerce landscape has shifted dramatically because of the coronavirus outbreak and the national lockdown. People nowadays tend to order items online and have them delivered to their homes rather than going to the store. With the increasing demand for home delivery, the expectations for delivering products faster have also increased. Hyperlocal delivery is the solution that provides on-demand delivery quicker to customers at their doorstep, and as a result, has seen exponential growth ever since lockdown measures have been imposed all over the country.
