My Website

Hello VDL community,

I was thinking to myself, if I want to put MY name out there, [u]I[/u] have too do the work.

This is my website of music. I'm selling my own stuff, stuff from the beginning of my writing to now, and it's not-Tapspace worthy material just yet ;-), but I hope you all enjoy it.

I'll soon have my own domain and everything.

www.eric-cruickshank-publications.webs.com

Let me know folks!

Thanks
The site itself is laid out well, but I know I personally would not pay for any music until I have heard it. Get an sample mp3 of them up and you'll probably get a lot more bites:)
I agree!  The site looks decent, but without any mp3's or sample pdf's of the cadence's or any other music, I wouldn't buy them either. 
I don't really have the capability right now to put MP3's in the store, I was thinking about putting MP3's on a totally different page.

Thanks for the input.

Hopefully I get more site visits now my Forum buddies know whats up =]
Hello everyone,

MP3's and a few starter PDF's have been added to a new page on the website. Let me know :-)

Ralph, is that I-Web you used to create your websites ?
Really digging ";Street Beat!";  Pretty sweet!

Yup and I love it. There are several limitations to it, but I have found a plethora of sites that show you how to do some next level stuff with it. As soon I wrap this season up, that's my next project.

(Jefe, what EES a plethora... anybody?)
#1 - Superheroes and Superheros... both appear as spelling in your parts.

#2 - Did you complete all of your rights/permissions for the Batman stuff?

#1 Oops.

#2 It is being worked on. I have it as Coming soon for that reason.
Nice job with the Street Beat! The website is nicely done as well.
Just dropping an update:

As of now, I will be just putting up music for people to download for free to use. I only want my name out there, and making people pay for music of some kid they've never heard of is going to be difficult. In the event I become somewhat, ";popular"; I might add pricing, but I'm cool with self-promotion for free as well.

If you download anything, enjoy!

Thanks for the feedback on everything guys. Much obliged
Not trying to be rude, but...

Calling yourself ";CEO-Owner-Founder"; will just get you laughed at.  Unless you actually have a real business with real employees, there's no reason to make up titles.  The language of ";us"; and ";we"; is unnecessary.  When you work as a freelance performer, composer, artist, etc., it's entirely OK to just be 1 guy, and market yourself as an individual. 

Adding mp3s and scores helps, but you're going to want arrangements (that have copyright issues worked out) and shows.  I have never met a drumline instructor who buys warm-ups and street beats from someone else, unless it's a publication from a top-12 DCI line.  You may want to arrange music that's in the public domain just to get started, then you'll have some actual shows for sale.

Good luck!
Hey everyone;

I figured I'd let at least some people know, that my website has it's first original composition up and running. Right now the pit book is what I have for an mp3, as I haven't dialed into making a full score mp3 without it sounding horrible. Though my composition is nowhere near Tapspace quality, I'm still very proud of this one and would like you guys to take a listen and let me know what you think. I'll have a full ensemble MP3 up in the coming week for sure.

Thanks for listening !
Hey dude, it's cool enough that you're putting yourself out there:)

That first initial step of, ";hey everybody... here's what I can do and I'm putting it out there for all to see AND criticize"; is definitely the hardest one to take!

Of course, you need to be ready for the ";dude it kinda blows"; opinions. Other than that, you're gonna have a fun time doing it regardless of any success or failure you might see.

Enjoy it:)


To paraphrase the modern philosopher Hansel, ";Sting... now there's a personal hero of mine. I don't really listen to his music, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that.";
Zoolander... just in case...
