Reasonably priced at $49?? For a template and to be able to post songs from one site to another blog? Are you kidding me?

Erik P.

Agreed. I think he'll have to drop the price a bit. It seems worth the money, but with so many free tools I would think it'd be hard for a non-technical artist to justify spending the money. Cool idea tho!

Clyde Smith

I think the price will be a tough sale given that the whole product hasn't been developed.

I'd say more but since we're all involved with music I don't have to point out the difficulties of getting anybody to pay for anything. Musicians are just as bad as anybody else on that score!

Unfortunately TumblrCamp is more at the great idea stage for people that need to be walked through the whole process, which is the market being targeted.

Definitively too pricey...

Robert Newton

Sounds interesting! but a little too expensive when one can have other choices that are far cheaper than the services offered.

You can make more money from selling artists the dream of making money than you can from selling your own music (example: TumblrCamp).

This guy acts like he was giving an impromptu video interview about his product when he probably went through lots of takes trying to come off as authentic and humble.

Also, Bandcamp, while highly useful and functional, is pretty terrible when it comes to design. There's simplified (e.g., Apple) and then there's simplistic (Bandcamp). It looks like it was designed by programmers. Why anyone would want their tumblr blog to match their bandcamp layout is beyond me. Seriously, Bandcamp uses imagemaps like it's still 1995.

All that being said, I'm still a huge fan of Bandcamp and would rather just pay them, instead of this guy, a subscription fee that would allow me 100% customization.

Very much the case!

This is cool but I'm having second thoughts to buy this, it's too expensive. The fact that one can have other choices that are far cheaper. It should be priced as to what it can offer.

Joshua

Ha, so true! That really has been the approach for so long. Musicians / artist need to take the reigns and start figuring out how to make their own money...

Why isn't anyone looking at new ideas? Like engaging the fans more? Offering something of value more than just music, for example?

Instead of scraping whatever bucks you can get from random fans, why is nobody looking into the ways of adding value to the fan experience, y'know?

Joshua

Ed, one tip: your website address is already linked via your name.

When you go and simply post your link again in yr comments, instead of adding some value to the discussion, it just looks kinda spammy.

For your health!
