StreetJelly.com went live on August 15th, 2012! Here is a run down how the first twenty days have gone, which have been nothing short of amazing. First though, we are grateful for all the new artists and viewers on the site. We really appreciate everyone for helping spread the word, “liking” us on Facebook, and following us on Twitter.
My favorite moment so far? That has to be LanaEve performing and trying to scroll down her music with her foot. Lana sings and plays guitar while reading the lyrics and chords she pulls up from Google (incredible!). So as she’s playing a song, she needs to scroll down the sheet music on her computer to continue – it’s the modern version of the age old page-turning dilemma. So bless her heart, one night she tried to scroll down the music with her toes while still singing AND playing the guitar. She almost fell out of her chair! But she picked right up and kept on performing. It was so adorable. You all should add her to your favorites and catch her when she’s back on. www.StreetJelly.com/LanaEve She has the most beautiful, angelic voice!
We launched the site without much fan fare in August. It’s what we call a “soft launch” in the business. We like to make sure everything works well, clean up the bugs, and get feedback from the initial users before we blast our name out to the whole world. However, we are totally blown away by the fans that have already flocked to the site. Here are some of the amazing numbers in the first few weeks.
- 128 performances so far by 25 different artists
- 2701 minutes of streaming video (45 hours)
- 889 tokens giving to the artists (worth $142)
- 785 unique people visited the site (1768 visits total)
We are very pleased, but our work has only begun. Can we make StreetJelly go viral? Yes we can! And we’ll need your help. So please keep spreading the word, and keep performing, and keep visiting the site.
And again, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for making the launch of StreetJelly.com so successful, exciting, and fun!
