Another significant step by Myntra is the Partner Portal that will help its partner brands publish various kinds of content – videos, inspiring articles etc., and target a specific user segment. The new portal will enable brands to plan their campaigns on the basis of customer demographic insights and deeper understanding of their purchase patterns.
