We've obviously written about musician Dan Bull a few times
, but that's because he keeps doing cool things, both in writing good, insightful and funny songs about topics we're interested in here, but also experimenting with cool ways to connect with fans
while also using free music
to further his career. A year ago he auctioned off
a custom song, and now he's doing the same thing again
I AM SELLING MYSELF ON EBAY. If you're the winning bidder, I''ll record a custom song on any topic you choose. The song will be awesome. Click and bid now.
* Anthem for your guild or sports team
* Advert for your business
* Theme tune for your film or YouTube channel
* Something ridiculously challenging just to show that I can do it.
* Battle track against something / someone you disagree with
If I like the topic, I may make a video for it too and it will get tens of thousands of views at the very least.
You can see the auction here
, where the bidding is going fast and furious. I'm sure it helps that he's built up a larger and larger audience over the past year since he last ran this experiment...
What I love about experiments like this is that it's not just about doing the same thing that others are doing, but finding what works with your audience, and knowing that if you can build up a strong fanbase, they'll be happy to support you doing cool things.
