I do not know if all web apps really need a "sexy" strategy. Sometimes (evry times) the service itself has to be sexy.
What is clearly needed is to know:
- what is your value proposition
- what is your main target
- what is its main need
- How your value proposition feed this need
First approach is to consider announcing your target that you feed their need.
Then the question of how to tell them can be detailed. What communication channel, how to put your message trough.
BTW, if you answer the first 4 questions, the last answer may appear obvious ...
