My software web application needs your guidance in establishing a fitting brand image, message, and marketing strategy. I require your expert advice what needs to be improved for my webapp frontend (ux). I also require a clear and actionable digital marketing strategy using social media.
In the USA, used media items such as books, video games, music, and films are popular inventory items to buy and flip for a profit.
The COVID-19 crisis forced many people to provide for themselves by sourcing then flipping such items. Inspired by e-commerce social media influencers, newcomers start without any knowledge on running an Amazon.com seller account.
Although enthusiastic, sellers quickly come to the realization this business requires a large array of knowledge. They become overwhelmed then doubt their abilities.
Our tool, Ludicaa, alleviates some of this decisional overload. We simplify sourcing decisions and pricing decisions down to a couple clicks and visual verification.
In the future, we aspire to target and service sellers all over the world.

Although not direct competitors, automatic repricing software solutions* do something similar to Ludicaa. However, these automated repricing solutions offer limited repricing strategies, which are not appropriate for used media sellers. Even more so for sellers using the Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA) program. Ludicaa does not automatically reprice a seller’s inventory.
*such as: “bqool”, “repriceit”, “repricerexpress”

Interests: Book selling, garage sales, flea markets, reselling, e-commerce.
Influencers: Crazy Lamp Lady Facebook group, Romer the Roamer, Steve Raiken

Characteristics: Prefer sourcing inventory rather than managing it. Mostly inexperienced with computers. Can at most manage basic Excel spreadsheets and that’s about it.

Characteristics: Have at least sold a couple thousand dollars worth of inventory. Have an understanding of inventory management. Want to achieve 100k USD gross sales per year.
Problem: They need to delegate time consuming parts of the business to software or people. They want to dedicate more time to acquiring inventory.
USP: save time, make more money, focus on sourcing inventory.
No other software specifically tailors their pricing strategies for used media resellers.
Makes complex product historical data easily digestible even by computer newbies.
Simplifies this entire pricing estimate process down to a couple clicks per product, without the need to purchase (and learn!) multiple third party products.
Save lots of time, and accurate bulk pricing estimates possible.
Allows you to easily outsource price estimates by using our software (eg: virtual assistants). You no longer need to take lots of time to train someone to make pricing decisions.
What does success look like
Our software is in a public testing phase. We wish to have all the good branding fundamentals ready by the time we launch (probably early september) and execute the marketing strategy action plan.
The current goal is to have 200 monthly recurring customers.
