The Story Of Saily In Prose
Online Classifieds we knew were crap
So to buy & sell we built an app
Away from the creeps in the sketchy alley (Craigslist)
A company was born in Silicon Valley
To make it happen we coded daily
Don't ask us why but we called it Saily
For 4 years the grind never stopped one day
Coffee cups and Redbulls one need not say
Our startup life was straight out of a movie
The company was growing and our product was groovy
Hundreds of thousands of users we had
The app became legit and it was no fad
But to win was hard and at all wasn't easy
The overnight success is too hyped and too cheesy
We fought and we tried
We laughed and we cried
And something different happened in the end
In a faraway rival, we found a friend
Their name is Mercari and they're big in Japan
And to win in the US we had a good plan
In a big move we decided to ride their horses
And without further ado, we joined our forces
In the end we want to thank each one of you
Our users, investors, and the friends we once knew
We truly love you more than words could tell
From deep in our hearts we bid you farewell
"Saily Changes The Way We Buy & Sell"
Let's get real, who has the time and energy to sell their unused stuff?
It feels like filling an immigration form to list your stuff up for sale, then it's a social nightmare to deal with strangers inquiring about your stuff and asking to meet up under a shady bridge. No thanks, I'll either throw my stuff away, or, better idea, throw them in the closet or under the bed.
Change that, was what we were plotting for. And boy did we make progress there, "but", and there's always a but, it wasn't near perfect. It's still not our first nature to sell our unused stuff, and that's why our team is still working on this vision at Mercari. We want to save every closet, and every under-bed from the suffering inflicted upon them by our unused stuff thrown there to die a slow death. We want to make selling your stuff easier than throwing them away. We believe in a future where everything you no longer need, gets a new life somewhere else. Amen.
