I just finished my website to start selling my cbg, take a look and let me know what you think and if I should change or add anything. I’m in the process to adding on each for sale cbg either audio files so people can hear what they sound like plugged and unplugged before they buy one or video. (was one of the suggestion from someone on the forums)
Comments are appreciative.
Oh my ghosh....lol
here's the link
Whats the URL (where's the link)?
first suggestion ... post the link . lol
Link is up now....wow, lol. Guess that is kind of important.
i had a peek .. i think it looks pretty dam good ;-)
you may want to reconsider custom orders tho .. that can open a huge can of worms .. some people expect WAY too much .. or maybe limit the "custom " to select choices .
Awesome guys, thanks guys for all the comments, that's why I wanted it for comments before I blast it out to the world, I get right on fixing.
Funny thing on the history page....I copy pasted that straight from wiki, but I'll change it to make it much better, thanks. :-)
As far as the custom orders go, I've done some eCommerce website before so I have a pretty good handle on how I'm going to do this and make it easy. I'm going to make it real simple for customer and for me, they have a selection processes such as:
Online Step process
1. They pick their box (from the pictures I will poster of all the boxes, probably around 5-10 different boxes)
2. Pick what kind of wood for neck (will be 3-4 different types to choose from with pictures)
3. Pick their hardware (from the pictures I post, will be 2-3 selections)
4. Select their tuning heads (black, gold, silver and style from the pictures)
5. Select if they want frets or fretless (example pictures to show)
6. Select if they want it electric or not
7. Select if they want the neck stained (selection from 4 different stains I've done, pictures provided)
and any other selection I want to give them so I don't have to make any decision for them. The more selection you give the customer the less you have to make decisions, all I have to do it put it together and ship it. Doing it this way, if the customer isn't happy with there cbg it is the combination they choose, so it all comes back on the customer not yourself, this protects you.
Never give yourself the option to make a decision for them or they will always find something they didn't like and will cause headaches down the road. It also makes them feel like they were part of the building process, it makes them feel good, which in turnaround... possible repeat customers. A happy customer is a great customer who then will tell others about you. A mad customer spreads like wild fire, give them no reason to be mad. :-)
Upon clicking DETAILs of the CBGs I could not find information on what KEY they play in, the scale length, how many frets?
Good catch, I'll put what key I tune them to, but really you can tune them to anything you want so does that really matter? I plan on making a video for each one so they can hear what key, etc.
As far as the other details, scale length, how many frets, etc..... does the normal person wonder about details like this or just us that make cbg? I thought about putting detailed info like that but then didn't because I thought it would be unless information that very few people would care about and understand. There's a lot of times people put unless information just to put it..... I like the phrase "Less is More."
What's everyone's thoughts on the details, should I add it or leave it off?
