In addition to an ad coming out in soon in Vintage Guitar, we are also becoming more prominent online.
Since the last post a few really great things have happened: We are now listed on the music product/accessory site, Reverb.com, and also on the newer (but very cool site) LuthierBuilt.com.You can click on the Reverb.com logo and be taken to the BuskerBags® page.
I found reverb.com at SXSW a few weeks back, and immediately liked what they had to offer. The site is great to work with and very simple to navigate. There are a ton of listings for just about everything under the musical spectrum, even BuskerBags!
When Bob Newby, LuthierBuilt.net founder, emailed me a couple of months ago, I thought well, here we go again. As you can probably expect, I receive many emails that want me to join a new site, one that “will benefit me greatly.”
After quite a few back-and-forths with Bob I realized LuthierBuilt.net was going to be different. Like what I do with BuskerBags®, he is basically a one-person store, but a VERY passionate one-person store. I suggest you visit both Reverb.com and LuthierBuilt.net to see what they have to offer.
Even with all the new “press,” however, BuskerBags® is in need of your help. With a listing on GoFundMe, we are able to receive all contributions, even if the goal amount is not reached. We will use the funds generated for the purchase of new ads in both Songwriter and Acoustic Guitar magazines. There are also several new products that will need to be developed that will also need your support.
On GoFundMe, unlike Kickstarter and a few other crowdsourcing sites, you don’t need to offer a lot of rewards that take up a good deal of the funds generated. I am, however, offering one BuskerBag® for those who contribute $75 or more, and two BuskerBags for those who contribute $125 or more.
You can contribute any amount, and I would be most appreciative of your consideration no matter the level of GoFundMe contribution.
