iBury is Founded by Amit Dasgupta , a certified leather tycoon with over 16 years in the leather industry and Arjun Laha. Amit’s previous venture Manti Fashion was a success targeting international audience. The idea of iBury came across Amit’s mind in the year 2015 after his rendezvous with his close relative who has been working in the IT industry for over 12 years.

The idea was simply to target Indian customers with reduced price, no middle man, straight from the manufacturing hub to the hands of the Indian customer. Work on iBury started during mid 2015 by gathering scattered data to build a website . iBury’s webpage was solely created by Arjun Laha who, even though, had a limited knowledge about web page development, worked tirelessly to overcome the challenges. On 28th March , 2017 the website for online sale was launched & live.

iBury products are manufactured with their signature features that allow their leather items to last significantly longer. Also, they contain waterproof linings for those unexpected spills and easy cleaning, sand cast solid brass hardware that will stand the test of time and reinforced stitched stress points with high tensile-strength nylon thread will make sure that the most sensitive part of a bag i.e. shoulder straps never fall. According to iBury, their products’ quality matches prevalant global standards and are no less than other renowned international brands like Gucci and Prada. iBury team believes that, Price and quality are the two factors which differentiates iBury products from other renowned brands. iBury economical price helps the mass to afford quality leather accessories.

For the iBury team, the biggest challenge initially was ‘time’ as both the founders could not allocate enough time to create a reasonably OK platform for online sale for products which is so successful in international market. Resources to gather data and build a viable e-commerce platform remained a distant dream until the duo decided to work hard and set up and create the website and its content.

Recently, iBURY partnered with Jack’sinn 54 a German brand and Jack’sinn54 products would soon be available at iburycases.com. Also, iBury’s parent company is on track to collaborate with some major international brands so that the platform can offer a wide range of products to its customers.

Any channel that brings in unidentified buyers such that they enquire about your products and services, rather than you hunting them individually is an inbound marketing method. Search engine optimization (SEO) is a source of inbound marketing.

Because of this, SEO becomes crucial for small-medium enterprises to make it through throughout this challenging time.

Content is the Backbone of Inbound Marketing

Search Engine Optimization is without a doubt the biggest source of traffic for any website. As an example, if you run a outdoor gear shop and somebody performs a Google search for the keywords “sleeping bag”, then you would want to appear first in the search engine result, since the large majority of clicks go to the top 3 or 4 organic results.

To win over inbound marketing, you will need content that fulfils the searcher’s intent. Most often than not, they are interesting, easy-to-scan and most importantly, provide a solution and value to the readers.

Inbound marketing techniques can be started whenever you wish but it takes skills and budget to succeed. This is why most businesses in Malaysia that need SEO services will choose to engage an experienced online marketing company to take care of this component of their business on their behalf.

In 2020, the company have begun to turn their attention to an AI-driven pricing model that allows them to offer a discount automatically depending on a number of factors such as demand, sales and the weather.

Though this may be a way off, one of the major goals for the company is to become the leading provider of marketing and sales software for leisure activities by offering a number of services such as smart pricing to audiences as well as advanced sales forecasts.
