Inside Sellaband.com

Monday, December 28th, 2009

In the below video I follow-up on last week’s post reporting on the poor performance of Public Enemy in raising cash via crowdsourcing platform sellaband.com. We take a look inside the web site to see what it does to encourage a community. I think that it could learn a trick or two from Facebook and LinkedIn, and that integrating with other social media platforms could also give it a boost.

Sellaband Ain’t Selling

Monday, December 21st, 2009

I went for my first video post today. Let me know what you think. I have see a few first video posts on blogs like Chef Patrick’s. In their fine tradition mine is a bit dodgy, but as with Patrick’s there should be a pick up in quality in future posts as I explore video-making further.

In the video I take a look at sellaband.com, and its  failure to crowdfund a Public Enemy album. We can’t blame SellaBand for the demise of aging rappers, but overall the site doesn’t exactly looks like it’s setting the world alight. I want to see crowdfunding platforms succeed big time, and in a future video I am going to take a look inside the members’ area of SellaBand and highlights some ways I think it could improve.
