Last week was a long one as we were trying different approaches to our 1-minute pitch. As always, the second we delivered the pitch we decided we had to change it. We’re never happy with what we have and that’s a good thing.
Anyhow, we wanted to share our first approach to Piictu’s elevator pitch and we are happy to get feedback. Do you think we have a clear message? Does the product come through clearly? And now, the pitch.
I’ll go straight to the point: Photo sharing is lame. You take a bad picture with a bad camera, put heavy make up on it and post it on a wall. And then what?
Piictu addresses the “then what”
Piictu is a mobile application that enables conversations through photos. It’s like a photo orgy on your mobile phone.
Just snap a picture, post it and watch it come to life with photo-replies from friends and strangers.
Just 2 days ago I was in NYC when I heard the big news, so I walked to Ground Zero and took a picture of the crowd. Imagine immediately anyone can see my picture, and I start getting picture responses from the crowd in DC; I also get reactions from people in their homes and from the military overseas; I even get some pictures of people in Pakistan. It’s such a powerful story-telling tool.
We are using our cameras to communicate emotions. Photos are becoming objects of interaction and Piictu enables this trend by unleashing many-to-many communication through this powerful medium.
Piictu has been getting a lot of positive feedback from the community. We currently have 2K signups for our beta and we’re going on private beta tomorrow.
