New Mac Start-up: Swappza!
Hey everyone!

Myself and two other Mac guys are working on an exciting start-up called Swappza!

We are currently running an anonymous market research survey and we would love to know what you think about our idea.

Survey Link: https://qtrial2015az1.az1.qua ltric...XpHJ972JwNgSrz

It should only take 3 - 5 mins and you'll have the chance to enter a draw for a $50 Amazon gift card!

To learn more about Swappza feel free to read this piece on McMaster’s Spectrum website (the survey link is also in the article):

Feel free to like and share - the more the merrier!

Thanks for the help and support!

How is this different from Craigslist or Kijiji?

Thanks for asking!

We feel that both kijiji and cragislist offer a platform primarily oriented towards the buying and selling of items. Even though the opportunity to conduct trades is present, it is utilized far less (at least on kijiji - my experience with craigslist has been minimal) and is poorly designed.

We hope to solve these issues with Swappza by focusing on bartering and providing a user friendly and intuitive design.

Lol, I trade on kijiji for a living, obviously I am in no position to tell you what to do, but competing with kijiji? Well good luck with that, it is backed up by ebay.. Had plenty of websites like that come up and go by.., I posted my ads on a couple "new" startups, I beleive I was the only one to put an ad up their. Costumer acquisition cost and advertisement cost alone is gonna be more than well, a lot, to say the least..

Not a bad idea, but as said lots of competition. Keep us updated
