Love the concept! Here's some points:
- [Pitch Deck]: The amount of text can be reduced a lot. Show a journey, why does this product mean so much to you.
- [Pitch Deck]: Probably make this deck in the form of an album
- [Website]: This really needs a revamp, you can probably get a really cool theme
- [Website]: Show some real life stories of how people are using your product, using trees, photos!

Hope this helps!

Hi Commudle. Thanks so much for your feedback. Completely redid https://bit.ly/ga-pitchdeck. Website UI will take longer. ;-)

This is beautiful.

Instead of

"GreatAlbum enables family/friends to share stories of loved ones creating biographies. Can also create outlines by ingesting digital media."

Could you say:

"Share stories of loved ones creating biographies. Can also create outlines by ingesting digital media."?

Love this concept. Feel like it would have so much meaning for people after their friends or family members pass away?

good idea! could be interesting to see how much privacy weighs on the minds of consumers - if it's enough to make the switch from the popular apps to something like this.

Hi Erik,
- I think the deck is too comlicated. Less text and more visuals would be great. Visuals should substitute some text and make it perceive quicker
- Website: What about the a short one liner in hero section. Main text and then a short explanation (Asana.com). So that visitors can faster understand what the product is about followed by detailed text about product describtion. Also "bullet points" would do.

It's a good time for this project.
But it has very strong competition from manufacturers. Good luck.

Sounds cool. I would love to see a demo or sample album before signing up though.

greatalbum.net · 650d ago

Hi TummyTown. Good point. Will work on demo video.

Nice and interesting technology.
There must be some use case to searching with snapshot..

Your pitch deck: the problem and solution slide is a little heavy -- personally I would simplify the pain points than follow with the pain killer. Can't wait to see your product!
