Is there a market for this?

Post by Johnny1975 » December 11th, 2014, 12:35 am

If I created a product that consisted of videos of me jamming on guitar to a backing track (composed and recorded by me), the idea being that the user jams along with me, and maybe I could have some text at the bottom of the screen guiding the user as to what's coming up next...

...do you think there would be a market for it? And if so, how much do you think guitarists would be willing to pay for it? I'm thinking albums of 5 jams, each one being 10-20 minutes long.

Hello,

I don't like it. It is a stupid idea. What is the point of trying to be so creative in money-making? Since 1980, because U.S.A. is founded on capitalism, more and more and more 'creative' ideas for making money have been made ~ this is a WASTE of time and unnecessary complication! Life is much too valuable to be lost in this stupid American endeavour of being 'creative' to make money.

What are you talking about? If it's not a good idea, can you explain why?

No, he can't. He's a troll. He literally can't. Er, won't.

Anyway.

You can always test the market before you commit to it. I forgot which book it was, but I remember reading about new entrepreneur testing their markets first online, and seeing if it was worth getting into. So, for example, set up a trial website to try selling the product, acting as if the product already exists, then see how much interest you can get in it. Some things like that, maybe it could help you find out how many potential buyers are out there.

Hello,

I've explained already ~ it's not a good idea to be so creative with trying to make money. It's a waste of one's life. Do Americans not understand common sense? It's because of your arrogance and primitive culture. Your whole life revolves around making money so that is the lens through which you view everything. The world is very very stupid to copy you idiots.

You are even more stupid than I first assumed! You are an american by your THOUGHTS............your country of residence doesn't matter if you THINK like an American. And you definitely think like one on the concept of how money should be made.

I don't understand the idea. Are you trying to teach people to play music? You're intending to sell this to musician teachers?

This should be in the business section. I think you can ask a moderator to move it.

I've heard about that. Although I've never seen it. You advertise something but don't create it until there's some interest. But how would I do that? Would I create a landing page and say whoever is interested leave your email address? I've personally never seen a site that talks about a product that doesn't exist yet.

I once bought a set of guitar blues lessons. It was about $65 if I remember well. But since then there's so much free stuff on youtube that I don't know if you'd succeed. You'd have to be very unique

You mean like PFAG? lol
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Yes there's loads of free stuff around. But my idea is not lessons, it's jam sessions, where the user jams along with me.

I think that's the idea, though I have not ever seen one either. I think it was either 4 Hour Workweek or $100 Startup where I read about this idea. (Which also has a lot of crap in there with a few gold nuggets you can pick out.) My own advice is if it doesn't cost much and you really care about what you'd be selling, then go for it. Nothing to lose by trying.

I think I've seen it done, with the cords and finger positions shown. What is your unique selling point?
