My Son's new website for Musical Instruments

Post by cefyn » Wed Jun 05, 2019 4:21 pm

Hi all,

My Son, Will, has launched his new business. Glissando - The Music Marketplace. A website based in the UK (for now) whereby one can advertise for sale, or browse to buy, musical instruments, musical accessories, and musical services, commission-free.

Google 'Glissando the Music Marketplace' and have a look. Any feedback is welcome.

Many thanks,

Cef

Not much there at the moment, but it looks well put together. Good luck to him.

FYI.

Tried to bring up the website, but got a security
warning not to enter. This is the notice I got.

"Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to glissando.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Learn more…"

Hope this is helpful to you. I am in southern California.

Thanks Rob, yeah - it's very early days. It's difficult getting the site populated with adverts. My son is raising awareness on social media etc.
he's got a long way to go, but is very determined.

Cheers

Hi Chuck - thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately google is still picking up pages from when the site was on a test server - That's the gridhosted bit.
When my Son changed onto the secure https server, you get a warning (because the url has changed). Best to click on the 'Glissando the Music Marketplace' link and not the About Us page (which is still showing up from the gridhosted server) - Hope that makes sense

Nicely set up. Well structured, minimalistic, not overloaded I do like that. Is it intended as local or more or less international platform?

If the test site is deleted then it means this is from google's cache. The will remove items if you request it. Go to any search engine and search for "google remove outdated content" and see if you can figure out the instructions from there.

Hi es335 - I'm pleased you like the site, I'll pass your message on to my son. At the moment he's concentrating on the UK market, but, has big plans to go global. I'm sure you can use the site from anywhere at the moment, as the idea is to put potential buyer and seller in contact. So the idea is the buyer searches for what's local to him/her, in the first instance.

Cheers

Momentum seems to be gathering on the site now - Had a Mixer, a Dulcimer, and a Portuguese 12 string guitar appear in the last few days.
Search for 'Glissando the Music Marketplace' for details.

Thank you Carlos - I'll pass on your wishes to my son Wil. By the way, the keyboard has just sold for £650. Cost him just £4.99 to sell on my son's site!

Best wishes

Hi, you'd have to contact the seller direct through the website. The aim of 'Glissando the Music Marketplace' is to put the buyer and seller in contact with each other.

Many thanks for your interest.
