Competitors

Competition

We have no real competition. Turn App is creating a whole new monopoly in the Global Events Industry. However other platforms such as Eventbrite and Ticket master sell tickets to events like we do. Facebook,Snapchat & You tube are user generated social media platforms as is Turn App. Next VR uploads virtual reality content for users. Turn App VR content will be majorly user generated. Turn App is an agglomeration of features to service our target customer in the best possible way, a Super App.

KPI's

  • 3,000 Users
  • 0 Monthly advertising costs (USD)

Startup traction

Turn App has about 3000 users.Turn App has not marketed its product. Through our early adopters we have been working to optimize the product. We intend to initially target a very niche customer group, small event organizers (200 or less attendees) & the numerous informal events that do not make up part of the traditional events market. This includes house parties, club nights, private parties, invite only events & campus events. We believe this is the gap in the market that will allow us to coalesce a whole new market where we are the monopoly. This also allows us to avoid competition with existing players. The small but unique initial target market will be leveraged to create strong and lasting brand loyalty. The service is subject to intense network effects due to features such as Cliques & Live Feed. This not only allows virality in event discovery but also in user acquisition.Our earliest adopters & core customer is the small event organizing business. A Global untapped market.

Add comment

Every millennial worldwide understands the term Turn Up. Turn App is a product the world needs. Millions of events happen everyday. Not all are necessarily commercial. These small events need an affordable platform to advertise themselves. Turn App is a free platform that provides them with so much value. At Turn App we believe an Event occurs when two or more people come together and engage in an activity together. Anything can be an Event. We believe Every moment in life is an event that deserves to be captured and relived Forever!
