I have a canvas/picture/acrylic frame upload system which I want to market to potential customers. It is very similar to the upload system on this website: http://www.wallcreate.com/photos-on-canvas.html. Try it out. Click on the "choose file" button. Upload your file then manipulate the image in real time. My system is more user friendly than this and offers both canvas picture and acrylic picture frames.
OK. So this is the idea I have.
I want to market my upload system to a potential / targeted market audience. This group of people will be people who print / sell:
- Canvas pictures (eg: http://blog.just4canvas.co.uk/Media/Default/BlogPost/photo-on-to-canvas.jpg)
- Acrylic frames (eg: http://www.esjdesigns.co.uk/Images/acrylic-printing-example-2.jpg)
- Frame pictures (eg: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=picture+frames&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=ecEkUvClPNOA7Qaj2YDYCA&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1440&bih=771)
What I need for you is to go out and ask people within this field of work if they:
1. Have a website?
2. If so, do they have an upload system?
3. Is their upload system as good as mine?
4. Would they consider using our upload system?
5. Would they consider subscribing to our upload system?
6. How much would you pay for something like this? £10/£20/£30 per month?
How this would work: I would offer my upload system to customers (who you have found) from all over the world. They would be able to purchase an entire website from me, which would be fully customisable by them and also purchase only the upload system, which they could use and show as their own. They would access the upload system via a link we send them which would direct their customer to my upload system, where they can upload their picture and manipulate it in real time. The printer (my customer) would receive the uploaded print ready image with all changes and specifications that their customer has made.
People who subscribe to my upload system would be able to customise their upload system easily and effortlessly using my back end system, which will be provided once they start to subscribe to my upload system. Further more, they would be able to easily change the appearance by the single click of a button, add features and remove features easily to their requirements, and as this service can be offered to anyone around the world they will be able to easily change the language being displayed by selecting their required language.
People who subscribe to my upload system would secure their subscription by paying a monthly fee. Their cost would be determined by the functionality they choose to offer to their customer. EG: If their product lines include acrylic frames, canvas prints and photo framing, they could be charged £15 a month or if they only offer canvas prints, they could be charged £5 a month. The price would depend on how many of our services they require. This is another factor that needs to be included into the market research. How much would each person pay for this service?
The difficulty I am having is identifying potential customers, who would subscribe to my service. I understand that every person or company who offer these types of products is a potential customer, but I need to identify a substantial amount of customers or potential customers who would benefit from my upload system and subscribe to it too. Can you help?
Would it be possible to put together a document for me of your requirements? This way I can identify exactly what you require from me and hope we can work closely together to get this project off the ground.
Looking forward to your replies and how you can help me
