Your best bet is to go through a localized facebook marketing campaign. You really need to take a look at your website and see if it has actual potential or not.
You need to see your website as your storefront, and especially with the pandemic going around, you need to make sure it is appealing to buy from it.
There are multiple approaches for a SaaS product launch. The main problem you will find is finding your first few clients. This is due to the fact that most potential clients look at your current portfolio and would want to see if it is worth their time using yours. If you have no clients, this process can be quite long and de-motivating. Your best bet is to give out your software for free at first to select clients, to build up a portfolio of active clients that you maintain. From there on, you can go out and sell it to bigger clients.
Unless you have established track-record and connections, launching a new SaaS product, can be quite difficult. Therefore, it is important to get good referrals as quick as possible, by giving your first clients a free try.

From my experience I would first contact one and wait a day or two till you get a response -- if any and then proceed to contact another journalist at the same publication. I have found this to be more effective than to contact multiple at the same time.
Your best bet would be to look for a pre-made source code and just edit out what you want to add in/remove. From my experience it is far easier doing this than paying a developer to make one from scratch -- if you're on a low budget. Also as far as I am concerned there is not a single CMS which has a native IOS app specifically for what you want to do, however I could be wrong.
Check out markets such as Chupamobile and CodeCanyon and see if they offer anything that you are looking for.
If you need any help regarding the business plan/monetization, let me know, I am here to help :).
I'm afraid that the only possible way is through promo codes. If I am not mistaken the person who wants to buy your app in Bulk wants to give it out to patients individually correct? Not that it is a hospital or such where they could simply use the same apple ID to login and put it on all their devices.
From my experience the only solution is through promo codes unless you release the app for free and approach a different monetization model.

From my experience I would not advise you to go with Venture Capital when you're a start-up as in the end they will most likely end up screwing you. A much better source for funding would be angel investors or friends/family.
The question of how much equity should I give away differs for every start-up. I remember with my first company I gave away 30% because I wanted to get it off the ground. This was the best decision I ever made. Don't over valuate your company as having 70% of something is big is a whole lot better than having 100% of something small. You have to decide your companies value based on Assets/I.P(Intellectual Property)/Projections.
I assume you have some follow up questions and I would love to help you so if you need any help feel free to call me.
I have registered over 20 companies in the last decade and from my experience I can tell you that every country serves a different purpose. I run a small gambling company that I have registered in Malta due to the legality of online gambling there. I have another company registered in Delaware, whilst my main company is registered in the Netherlands. If your business is only online I would advise you to register it in Europe or if you must in the United States in Delaware/Nevada. Credibility wise I would say that registering your company in Singapore or Malta or Costa Rica, will not benefit you much opposed to say Delaware or The Netherlands.
I am available for a call if you need anymore help. I am currently doing a promotion for a one time free 15 minute phone call so just send me a message for the discount code.
From my experience it is best to assemble a sales team and make them do some cold calling. I believe that speaking to start-ups personally will gain you more companies to post jobs on your platform.
I would also advise you to go on LinkdIn and look around the job listings there to see which companies are offering them; then contact them to perhaps post on your platform.
You should show them why you are better and why it will benefit them from posting on your platform versus others. I believe that finding the companies through LinkedIn and such will make you able to attain a large customer base rather quickly.
If you need anymore help feel free to give me a call. I am currently doing a free 15 minute consultation so just message me for the discount code.
