Limited Charter Memberships
Join a Site focused on bagpiping and nothing else
Let's face the music - none of the directories or gig networks out there highlights the bagpiping community. Instead bagpipers are lumped in alongside every other type of music: DJs, mariachi bands, string quartets, and harpists. Search for "birthday party entertainers" and you're competing with balloons and face painting, magicians, and cosplayers.
Option 1: You can continue checking your email and phone for gig leads to come in, spending small fortunes on advertising and premium accounts with Yelp, GigMasters, etc. just to find yourself in the same position 3 months from now.
Option 2: You can decide it’s time to cut through irrelevant 'competition' and just be listed amongst other bagpipers in your local area.
Challenges to getting gigs/Busking
"Who has the time?" Not everyone can be a full-time bagpiper and you don’t want to add “another job” on top of your schedule.
"Too tired." Maybe you've been in the gig game for a while, but feel like you can't get traction. Time isn't the issue -- it's the energy needed to continue promoting yourself.
"You're not ready yet." We all have the to-do list that needs to be completed before we can move forward - 'I need a website... I need to rank higher in search results... I need to record music... I need to setup social media profiles..." The longer the to-do list goes incomplete - the more it becomes a blocker.
The Goal: Just book 2 Clients
The magic number is two paying clients.
Why two? Because depending on how much you charge and the membership plan you choose - the first or second booking covers the cost of an annual membership… so your second or third paying client and every subsequent client is PURE PROFIT. Unlike a typical job where 2X the work still gets you the same paycheck, each additional gig means more money in your pocket.
And no booking fees or commission costs means no hidden fees.
Even new performers should be able to get two gigs. A Robert Burns dinner and a summer wedding. A St. Patrick's Day party and a funeral service. A birthday, family reunion, graduation ceremony, parade, etc. there are nearly a thousand ways of getting your first two clients. From that point on you can decide how much or how little you want to make extra.

why offer a guarantee?
We, like you, have tried our hand at being found online. We've created websites, joined the business directories, invested the marketing budget, and have experienced the same challenges and disappointments.
