your video response makes no difference...NOBODY IN A BAND IS GOING TO PAY $30 and up for a potential gig, we don't need you that bad! We can find our own customers a lot easier. Are you listening?

TT: Glad you asked. I've been playing as a drummer/vocalist in bands in live venues since I was 14, and I'm 56 now. Venues don't pay much more for a band now than they did 40 years ago. Private parties pay about double, which is a little more reasonable. Your service was great when I first started using it, but the flaw I wrote you about was that if a private party didn't respond to my bid, and I kept the date OPEN for them until I got a YES or NO answer, I lost that date regardless if they didn't respond. So you changed your policy to say that if they didn't READ my bid, I got my money back. That's great, but what I keep saying is that I need to know as soon as they have made a decision, which I can look up and eventually see, but it's not automatic with a text or email directly. So that's still an issue. As far as PRICING, you are out of your mind with the current policy of charging "what you think it's worth". Your app started out with a $5 fee, and then it went to $11, and now it's an average of over $35, just to bid! No way am I using your service now. I can generate way more gigs on my own by simply emailing and sending out messages on venue websites, and getting ad hoc inquiries via our biz cards at our gigs; we get many private parties that way. Yes I have to expend time an energy doing it that way, but for it's way better than $35 a pop for something that has no better than 10% return rate (that is the Sales truth). So, CHANGE YOUR FEES BACK to something reasable for a band can afford it, and you can still make money and be profitable. Else TT is dead to me. Thanks for asking. John
