Clarifying My Message

Hey everyone, this weekend I launched an invite-only beta of my first product - Shoptopus. Shoptopus is a web app for shops that handmake and sell their own products - usually Etsy stores - to help them manage inventory, keep track of their product builds, and (eventually) receive metrics in how their shop is performing.

I got 20 users(!!!) to request and receive invites to the beta which is really exciting! However when spreading the word a lot of potential users seemed confused about what the app did and thought it had something to do with managing their social media - which it isn’t.

So I was hoping the IH community could help me clarify my message of what Shoptopus is, and also provide general feedback on my landing page?

    If your target market are Etsy users and makers, then I think you need to tailor the look of the site to suit them - Lots of nice images and a softer style.
