Genie Lens

Turn your wish into a reality!

Introduction

With social photo sharing apps growing in popularity, GENIE LENS has created a free app consisting of social media photo editing and manipulation, with plans of adding an online marketplace. We aim to enable those wishing to sell items to have the ability to promote their item with creativity and fun! Key editing features equip users with the tools to edit their photos based on their specific needs.

Problem

Nike Air Force 1 Shoes

Genie Lens has identified three main problems with photo editing & online marketplaces:

  1. Resorting and manipulating images is a pain — Updating and uploading images tailored to specific platforms is a common task for online users. However, trying to change embedded text or a main image can cause a great deal of frustration. We believe such simple tasks shouldn’t be as challenging as they have proven to be.
  2. Overcharging — Many marketplaces charge upwards of 10% of the seller’s profit.
  3. Negotiation — Numerous marketplaces only allow firm pricing, with no room for negotiation.
“Very good app for background photo manipulation. Love the features.”

Business Model

GENIE LENS aims to implement an exclusive subscription plan, depending on how many items a seller would like to sell per month. As we anticipate rolling out future versions of GENIE LENS, we plan to offer advertisement placements within a user's feed.

We plan to equip GENIE sellers with the ability to post short clips of their product/item with the same concept for the backgrounds.
