What is Powsumer?
We believe in the power of numbers.

Today, if you want to go and buy a product, the retailer determines the price. We are determined to change this model. Imagine this, you decide there’s a television that you want to buy. You’ve done your homework and checked all around and found the very best price available (say $500). You want it for a little cheaper (say $450). So you get together 10 people that want the same television.  Family, neighbors, co-workers, friends, friends of friends and create what we call a purchasing “Pack.” Now with the pack in tow, 10 strong, you march into the store, find the manager and tell him that you will buy 10 televisions right now for $450 each. More often than not, that manager will take that deal or find a way to make it work, because in the world of retail, that’s a great day. Powsumer is that experience, only online.

Powsumer brings together consumers into purchasing groups, which we call "packs," through social and online networks in order to demand the lowest price for products. Powsumer then works hand in hand with suppliers to fulfill the price demands of the packs. Powsumer will provide suppliers with real time market and pricing trends so that a deal is made that benefits both sides.

Consumers want the best prices. Suppliers need to move inventory.  Powsumer fulfills both of these needs. Simple as that.

Powsumer will take group oriented shopping to a new level. By allowing packs to pick a product or service and demand a better price, the power is truly back in the hands of the consumer.

 

The Powsumer Team
We believe that the team we have assembled will be instrumental in bringing Powsumer to the forefront of the American economy.

The Powsumer Team

  Why Now?

We believe that there is no better time than now to unleash Powsumer; the American people are ready for a tool to put the consumer back in control.

Why Now?

  

What We Need?

We believe that Powsumer is perfect for Indiegogo because both utilize a similar philosophy. That is, both demonstrate the aggregate power of the online community when banding together for a common purpose.
  • We have been boot-strapping the business with blood, sweat and tears. It's time to get serious and we need your help!
  • We need your help to reach our goal of $100,000.
  • We need you to help us launch Powsumer, through this Indiegogo funding and as an instrumental influence in helping us better the site itself by offering feedback and guidance - and once the beta site is launched, you will be one of the first to have a go at it.
  • We need you to help us spread the word. If you are logged into Indiegogo, then use your personalized link (directly under the main video at the top and starts with http://igg.me...) to share our campaign with your family and friends. If you use your personal link, any donations that come from your referrals will be tracked back to you and we will reward you for your support. More details to come about - but we can promise you that you will not want to miss out on these additional referral only perks.

 

The Money

We believe that money is not everything, but in the world of bootstrapping a startup, $100,000 will go a long way to help us get off the ground.

The Indiegogo campaign goal funding will pay for further development and launch of the Powsumer beta website. The goal funding will also allow us to build more automation into the next phase of the Powsumer beta website.

Specifically, the goal funding will be allocated approximately as follows:

  • Ruby on Rails and Database Programing and Development: 85%
  • Taxes: 7%
  • Miscellaneous Expenses: 8%

 

Other Ways to Help

We believe that the strength of the crowd is paramount to empowering people and will ultimately help us achieve our goals.

Spread the word to your friends and family. If you have any questions, you can contact the Powsumer Team at info@powsumer.com
