The Pretty in my Pocket (PRIMP) app delivers a mobile and social platform that enhances the beauty shopping experience both online and offline, inside the drugstore or at the high-end beauty counter. PRIMP helps consumers choose and purchase products. Users receive product validation from reviews and the beauty bags of friends and experts as well as inspiration from "looks" (photos), how-to videos, and featured content. As users personalize their profile and use PRIMP's tools, we learn information to make more personalized product recommendations just for her.
A backend SaaS technology platform enables brands and retailers to publish content and promotions that correspond to specific product UPC codes, retail locations, and individual users. PRIMP facilitates and strengthens loyalty engagement because the brands give the beauty purchaser what she likes, and she tells the brands what she likes. . . creating the perfect feedback cycle.
