Exploring Life & Business with Sunny Choudhary of PortraitFlip E-commerce

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sunny Choudhary.  

Hi Sunny, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Often problems lead to the inception of great things. 

And my problem was my roommate. 

While in college, all I could worry about was not failing our exams but not my roommate. 

His world, at the time, revolved around his girlfriend. He was hell-bent on giving her a memorable gift for her birthday and, unfortunately, or should I say fortunately, had his eyes set on a handmade painting. 

But alas, we couldn’t find any service that was remotely feasible or delivering to India, let alone giving any sort of assurance. 

As you would have guessed, this was the problem that struck us gold and led to the beginning of PortraitFlip E-commerce. 

After 4 years and a turnover of 6 cores, I would say the rest is history. 

Today we are a team of 15 young, talented, and beautiful people who helped grow this company to where it is. 

At PortraitFlip, we help you gift something memorable. So don’t just stop at a photo; get it painted! 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
As a bootstrap start-up, we could not invest big into marketing right off the bat like our already established competitors. 

What really did help us grow is Digital marketing, I focused on learning SEO to help us grow organically. 

With a few fails and many wins, we were able to grow organically and bring traffic, orders, and ultimately money into the company. 

But learning digital marketing is a long and evolving field that requires patience and persistence to get any results, let alone positive ones. 

And when it is done right, you will reap the benefit.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We have helped thousands frame their memories with handmade paintings. 

At PortraitFlip, we paint your picture-perfect portrait made on-demand from one or multiple Photos. 

But it just doesn’t stop here; 

We create paintings from photos that are nearly impossible to be captured in reality. 

Channeling the magic of art, we merge your realities with dreams. 

With the help of our mighty designers and artist, we shape your dreams into a portrait. From Bringing loved ones together to having your lost ones in your treasured movements. 

When you commission artwork with PortraitFlip, you don’t just commission an artist; you also empower and uplift the artist community around the world. 

What do you think about happiness?
While Diving Deep to make this idea into a reality, I found my true motivation. 

As heartbroken as I was when I found that artists not just in my country but all over the world face a hard time pursuing their passion and often struggle to earn a living. 

Today, it makes me proud to say that we house more than 150 artists all over the world. 

Getting them to trust a bunch of 20-year-olds for their living wasn’t the easiest but perhaps one of the most rewarding factors of running this business.
