I like the website and the idea, but I would welcome to see real photos of the team members and not the cartoons. This platform is good bot for the bands that don't get too many offers to play, but have dedicated fans and for the fans that would like to hear/see their artist play, but the artist doesn't plan on playing in their town. I hope that you will spread around the world and wish you good luck.

I will mention it to our designer, but the animated characters are a big part of our identity and would put a very different feel (regular, common, boring!) to our site. But maybe rollovers would work? Thank you.

Yes, I think it would be great if the visitor would go over the picture with cursor and it would change to regular photography...;)

Very positive idea! To make it common, you need a lot more to work!

Definitely needs more countries added. Missing sorting system. Categories is a must especially if the events list gets big. The events windows are too large in my opinion. 1/4 of the current size would be enough and will probably look even more sleek on the page. The event dates are in spanish... i think. You're welcome

Очень позитивная идея! Чтобы она стала распространенной нужно очень много еще работать!

Interesting idea but actually I don't believe that it will become widely spread.

Pretty good idea! As an ex-concert promoter myself, I often had to cancel venues when I felt like the ticket sale would be too low to afford. Every single time, some people would tell me "I would have paid easily 100$ to help you out and (like 10x the ticket cost) to get to see this band". It is a great idea for die hard fans to get a return on their investment (if the venue is successful) since they would assume a certain share of the risk. Share the risks, share the benefits, that's awesome. The biggest challenge would be to get bands and promoters used to this platform. What is your marketing plan? The idea is good, but it needs to be spread a lot for it to work. The video in itself takes a bit too long to get to the point. I would make it less than a minute if possible. Also, the voice-over doesn't feel convincing. Might be just my personnal taste.

PS: do you plan to make it available in Canada?

Hola!, Love the idea. Going to your website I'd like to see the section https://www.weeshing.com/about at first. So I know what is that about and why I should stay/learn more. It should be easy to fix. Best of luck!

In general, I like your idea, and think it has a future, considering this has been done by fans for quite a while now. The chance to make a profit while supporting a band you love is enticing. However, your presentation could use some work: * Put the language selector on the top of the page, not the bottom. * Get someone to proofread your English translation, and to finish it. * Flashy graphics are nice, but your page currently feels inconsistent and unpolished. * Is there a reason why I need to create an account and log in before being able to see how previous concerts turned out? * This might just be me, but the "Profit as much as 100%" line in the video makes me suspicious. Not to say that it's not true, but such a statement should be backed up by easily accessible data. Best of luck with Weeshing!

rất hay đó là một ý tường tốt

Great idea, people want to support their beloved artists twice as much. Even when there comes a profit from this support. But I am still little bit.... There is no open project which is a pity. It seems like there is nothing to invest even when I see already financed events. The list of the financed events seems like a poster, I cannot see details of this past events, how much they collect, how was the concert.....anything about it. Yes, it is good for a fans but it is also great for another people that just have any spare money and they want to do something useful with them. Tell me that because of my money they have a special podium to get closer with their fans. And I will be happy! This should not be only about money. Make it fun for everybody and give them for their money a little bit of happiness.

Thanks for the reply, Martin. I hope you simply did not click each link on the site, because most of your wishes have been answered at Weeshing! As to an open project, you are right, we have not listed our first US project yet. But there are many across Latin America. We are expanding, but may be some time before we're in every major music market, obviously. We do have discussions happening in Italy, Spain, France, England, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark...but we're growing. If you visit the weeshing.com/events, you should be able to click on flags atop the page that will show you what's available currently worldwide. As to details of concerts we've funded, we do not produce the shows, so we have limited exposure to the event itself, though this is something we hope to improve before we launch our true Crowdfunding platform that reaches non-accredited investors (like regular fans). In the meantime, if you visit weeshing.com/producers you are able to see the average profitability of a particular promoter, and in a gray box should see the best return they've given. Keep in mind, although some of the numbers are small, they were delivered in a matter of weeks, not a year. So, those numbers annualized would be quite a bit better than bank rates! But as you said, it's not at all about the money, or at least shouldn't be! That's why all our investors get to choose from a variety of benefits/perks for each concert they help fund. Our investors typically invest more than once, so that should tell you that they enjoy the show as VIPs regardless if they make a bunch of cash. For a couple thousand dollars, the return will be in the hundreds. So, so long as they enjoy their experience, the profit is not really the biggest return. I love your comments. Keep them coming!

Hi Weeshing Team, As a musician, i like the idea very much and believe it works. So I like to give Feedback on the website appearance. I looked at the Mexican page and watched the video. The white logo in front of the milky red color looks cool. However I do not find these colors on the page. Everything is grey or black except this big orange box. Everybody has a different taste of course. But for the brand Weeshing to be recognized there should be more consistency in the Layout. Other than that, nice job André

thanks for your design feedback, Andre. You are correct though, each culture, each individual has their own style, so it's hard to please everyone, right? I hope our design ethic reaches most of our investors though. Come back again! thanks.

I almost didn't go to the page because the description on Google was in Spanish, and I wasn't sure it was the right page. I wish I could click on the financed events and see the breakdown of how many investors were involved and what the payout was. Right now, it just feels like a concept website and not an actual investment platform.

Thank you, Laura. Great questions, but it appears you may not have clicked the "Promoters" link in the About menu? (see below) But, as to Google, it obviously ranks query returns by virtue of a lot of factors, mostly by traffic generated. And our Chilean site has been in business over 2 years and raised nearly $8million USD in thousands of transactions, so it's natural it would show up on top, and since our hosting architecture detects nation IP addresses, it redirects browsers accordingly. So with just Weeshing.com as the catch-all address, you can see why it does what it does. But I will check with our dev team to see if there's anything we can do about that quicker. As to your other comments, we do provide transparency as to our Promoters' experiences, and highlight their best performances and profit margins and number of investors at https://weeshing.com/producers. Hope that helps. Thank you again

Great idea, I like it. I like the page and the contents.

1/ techstar has an accelerator program focused on music business but they are taking 6% shares ! 2/ Trust: - even if a cool idea from your designer (consistency of your brand) Your portrait need to be closer from reality. - nice posters collection what about the events: Concert Photos even from fans or videos and bunch of fans who invested already can share. - community: a social media platform can do a wonderful job to promote fans enthousiasm. - reviews From music news magazine will do a great job. 3/ - international ? When I open the link it asks me to specify a country but not mine? F*ck I want to see the “international by default then if there are few Specific countries inrotuce them. 4/ - where are the fans? On those webpage? The dummy puppets in the video? Are those puppets represent fans aka me? 5/ - how to rock? An event a music festival ! Crowdinvest on your own weeshing music festival 1D of full concerts . You have collected fans and bands therefore they can send back the lift. 6/ - last but not least? Where is the soundcloud API which will inspire fans on your platform ? but as well What about the weeshing API? Or so Which can be implement on Soundcloud, deezer, Itunes, etc …

Olivier, clearly you understand the music business! Thank you for your comments. I have upvoted you! I have also put all your suggestions in front of our developers to address. Keep them coming! As to the specifics, here are my answers: 1) I know Brad Feld and am a fan of TechStars and GAN. We have already graduated from a number of accelerators and are ready to launch. 2) Photos: agree that trust is key, especially with investments. I have also asked for more event photos, but please keep in mind that we are a funding portal, not a production company. We do not stage or manage the events. But I agree that more concert experience images and video would only help. 3) Right now, for a number of reasons including Legal/Regulatory, we cannot offer service in every country. The US site will be the default for all visitors, but since we are just launching now, we have no concerts yet to invest in. So, Chile remains the default. 4) fans are on band web pages, and event web page. I think they should also appear on ours and will work on that. 5) We do plan in our Phase 2 to allow fans and fan clubs to propose events. 6) API I will look more into. Thanks again. Sincerely, Scott (CEO)

Also i would add a section on the web site where artist could apply to promoters to try to work with them

2 years ago

Great Idea, promoters could be interested by artist with millions of views on YouTube but only doing IT for fun

2 years ago

Not impressed by seeing a video in Spanish with English subtitle when i expect to hear it in English, Very interesting to see all the past funded event with their return on investment. It would be interesting to see a little video of the even funded to see what they are capable of or at least a quick youtube link to make it easy for us to evaluate the quality of the event I would love to be able to sort all past events by profitability and or by country

Thanks Luc, very much appreciate your input. 1) we do not have foreign sites for each language yet, so if we do not have a localized version of our site, the default may be Spanish with subtitles. We will likely switch that to English and are just launching the US version now. I have made note of your other fine suggestions so please check back soon!
