Hello fellow product-loving friends, Thank you for stopping by to have a look at Optimus Luggage. I’m Helen on the team of Optimus and I would like to give you a quick overview of Optimus Luggage.

Our direct-to-consumer model allows us to keep costs down and pass the savings directly onto you, where it belongs. Seriously.

We have built Optimus Luggage with a lot of passion and would love to listen to your feedback on it. Cheers, Helen Yuan
Who do you see as the first adopter here? Personally I love the pitch I'm just hesitant about your claims of the designer-level product since I haven't heard of the brand
Thank you for your question! Although our brand may be new to the industry, our team most certainly is not. For decades, we’ve been intimately involved in every phase of the luggage production cycle, from manufacturing to importing to final delivery to customers. We know firsthand that luggage prices, even for the most affordable brands, are still inflated due to middlemen markups. Although other companies have also claimed to take the direct-to-consumer approach, we knew we could do better. That’s what led us to create Optimus – an unshakeable commitment to finally bring travelers premium luggage at revolutionary prices.
I'd definitely include that in your marketing. I think it's a strong sell to show off the team's expertise. By the way seeing as you just launched I have a market research service where for $12 you can ask 100 people a question then follow-up based on how they answered and even interview them!
You could ask e.g. "If you were offered designer-level luggages for half the price, would you buy them?" You'd probably learn about other concerns they have or even glean marketing insights based on what language they use. Anyway If you want to give it a shot feel free to sign up and let me know which email you used over Intercom and I'll pass you $12 in free credits. Best of luck otherwise!
