Picbaq will be the next big thing in social media and the digital world. Now you have the chance to get in early and become a partner in something that is totally new and unique on the market.
The problem this product solves
Many influencers, all over the world, make a lot of money by marketing companies and the companies products on social media. But there is actually no guarantee that products or services actually are sold. Only on Instagram, some 100 million pictures are shared every 24 hours. And just imagine adding Facebook and other social media giants to this.
How the product solves it
Picbaq is the solution. An app for everyone who can use an app and for all companies that want to market themselves successfully. This is how it works: next time you step into a shop just sign in to the Picbaq-app and see what offers are hot at the moment – no matter if you are buying some ripe oranges or black party shoes. Choose one of the offers in Picbaq and get money back. As the owner of the store or the shop, you can award your clients directly and avoid spending money on traditional expensive marketing.
The app can be used anywhere and in almost every buying situation. From your local food store to where you buy your clothes, shoes, furniture, electronics and everything else you need. Or just make money marketing something. Let´s say that a car dealership wants to launch a new car model. Take a selfie with you and the car, post it in your social media channels and get paid straight into your account. The car dealer rather pays you than spend his money on ads on TV or in magazines without any effect.
Product use cases

Everyone on the team comes from different parts of business life, from different industries, from different positions in different organisations and we belong to different generations, But maybe the most important thing is that we are ordinary peoples, knowing how other people act, react and, not at least, how they shop.
We see a somewhat aggressive journey ahead of us. Our aim is to exit within 2-3 years, and then giving a great return of the money invested to owners who invested in Picbaq early.
Picbaq is first in Sweden, Europe and maybe the world with this kind of sales generating marketing. A form of marketing that is 100% driven by the companies that participate and that rewards their customers/consumers. Picbaq has come far and is ready to launch the first campaign in early 2019. This gives us a lead compared to others and at a very low risk. Competing apps, if they exist, will find it very hard to close in on us. There may be similar services on the market, but no one has made it as simple and wide as Picbaq.
